Madrid has some beautiful surprises on offer for lovers of street art.
I found really impressive urban art in Madrid, especially murals. Take a photo walk with me and get a taste of it.
Tabacalera is a lively cultural centre in what used to be a tobacco factory.
First I went inside to see what exhibition was on. But when I left the building and started heading up towards the city centre, I discovered the magnificent wall surrounding Tabacalera.
No less than 25 pieces of art decorate that wall. It’s a project called Muros Tabacalera. It started in 2014 and is now featuring its second edition from 2016.
Artists were invited to paint these with a general Urban Nature theme. They each brought their own different style and interpretation and the outcome is just beautiful.
This irresistible piece is by Okuda:
And some really moving art by Digo Diego:
Love this elegant piece by BTOY:
And finally a great piece by Deno:
You’ll find Tabacalera next to the Embajadores metro station.
Not too far from there in Lavapies, the cool multicultural neighbourhood of Madrid, I found this stunning mural by artist Barbara Siebenlist:
More great street art I discovered while walking around the area:
There’s even more to explore in the urban art scene in Madrid. Paste ups and sticker art and even larger murals… It’s one of my favourite cities in the world thanks to its eternal cool vibe. The street art scene doesn’t disappoint!
