Poznań Street Art

I spent a good amount of my time in Poznań wandering down streets, into alleys, and under bridges in search of art spray painted, stenciled, or wheat pasted on buildings, gates, and cement walls. Enjoy the fruits of me wandering around like a troll all day!

A mural at the corner of Kościuszki and Taczaka. I’m pretty sure this artist also did a mural in Łódź.

Kantaka 4. This artist, Blu, has also done several murals in Wrocław. Plus this driveway leads to an alley full of good pieces and bars.

See the Pan Peryskop (Mr. Periscope) at the bottom? Keep an eye out, this guy pops up all over the city. The artist’s pseudonym is Noriaki Kasai (I looked it up)

Near the Cathedral on Ostrów Tumski. There were a lot of these little paper bags painted all over.

The hearts usually accompanied the paper bags.

Apparently it is legal to paint murals under bridges without explicit permission.

    1. Yes, the city governments in Poland give them these commissions to make the old Soviet buildings more attractive. They’ve also decriminalized or legalized graffiti art in designated places in many cities.
