Brussels is often thought of being nothing but muscles, chocolate, and the EU. But it is so much more. In addition to having a very diverse population, Belgium is also one of the most up-and-coming hip places in Europe. This article talks about just one aspect – Belgian love of murals and paintings on unloved spaces. See our comprehensive guide to Belgium here.
Graffiti, stencils and stickers – oh my! From Basquiat to Banksy, street artists have gone from vandals to vigilante heroes in public opinion, making accessible art for the masses. With the world as their canvas these crazy creatives decorate cities around the world with colorful murals. Head to Brussels and tour the street art as the city celebrates the ninth art of comic strips along with the Smurfs’ 60th birthday.
