Sarah and I have been in a lot of cities and places around the world and one of the things we love to photograph are wall paintings.
Here are some of the best wall paintings we have come across:
These wall paintings took Sarah’s breath away when she visited Penang this winter. You can expect a blogpost about this amazing town in March!

We live in Amsterdam and our town has a lot of street art. I went on a street art tour and discovered the stories and meaning about these wall paintings.

When I visited Rome I walked around one of the most local neighborhoods called Trastevere and I found this beautiful wall painting.
When I visited Barcelona last summer, I stayed in a secluded area where the locals live. It was near the end of the beach and I found a wall full of street art. I loved this particular one of the famous Biggie “ready to die”album cover.
Because I lived in London for 7 years, I had the privilege to live amongst the real Banksy wall paintings in the Camden Town Area. One of his most famous works was just around the corner of where I lived!
When Sarah goes to Brussels for her work, she never has time to wander around but last month she consciously took some time off and walked around the streets before heading to bed. She found this cool wall painting and we featured it on our Instagram.
Brussels is full of surprises..
We love ourselfs a little provocative art and Berlin is just the place for that. Sarah came across this piece in East Berlin.
