Photo Essay: Art in the streets of Ljubljana

17 Feb

While randomly walking around Ljubljana we discovered that this city hosts a lot of public street art and graffiti. Pretty much everywhere you walk to – you come across either a beautiful mural or an interesting installation or a unique sculpture. There are certain areas such the Metelkova district, former military barracks, that has now become a self-declared autonomous culture place to gather for alternative / underground artists. The entire area is full of huge murals, installations and bits mosaic work. We felt that Ljubljana has such an underlying creative energy or feel that you cant help but return inspired to create your masterpieces.

Sharing these beautiful pieces of art via a photo essay with you below –

    Looks like a beautiful town with very interesting art! Thanks for sharing this. The hanging shoes are really absurd – am sure there’s an interesting tale behind this.

      Hey thanks for the kind words. We had checked with a couple of people on the hanging shoes but no one knew anything about it. In fact they all said that one day someone threw up his shoes and then everyone just followed…
