These benches are distributed throughout Isidora Goyenechea, but the best are in these three blocks. They will probably be the only pieces of art you can sit on!

Sewed Frogs

If you look closely, you can see bees sewing together this pair of frogs. And if you look even closer, you’ll be able to appreciate the details and designs they have made.

Américo Vespucio Norte between La Gioconda and Neveria, Las Condes,                              Santiago, Chile

Right next to a bus station, this street is filled with graffitis and colorful murals. You can get there easily and walk around. Enjoy!

 

A Happy House

As you enter Užupis, you’ll come across a sign welcoming you, and asking you to smile. And with art like this sprayed around the small independent republic, who wouldn’t?

The Pop-Art Wall

So, this was my hotel room’s view when I stayed in the Row NYC, right next to Times Square. I could not find it on foot, but maybe someone has better eyesight than I do (which wouldn’t be surprising at all). If someone does, or if someone has any information about this, please do contact me and help me make this blog as accurate as possible.

 

Flower Power

Street Butterflies

 I’ve been living a few blocks from these for over a decade, and only saw them recently. The butterflies don’t stand out very much, so they’re hard to spot (in my defense!) Even once you do, you need to get close to actually appreciate them. They cover about half the block’s pavement.

Love, Love, Love

Christiania, Copenhagen.pngFreetown Christiania, Copenhagen, Denmark

Christiania is an autonomous community in Christianshavn, and it is filled with street art. Inside its walls you’ll find beautiful sculptures, gardens, colorful pavement, and unbelievable graffiti. It’s definitely a must-see.
