street art in valencia

by Jessica

So I went to Valencia, Spain again! It’s such a wonderful city and it was wonderful going there. Mostly because it was rainy and/or SNOWY at home and I was just chilling in summer dresses and sunglasses being cool af.

_DSC0003_DSC0004I didn’t take LOADS of pictures, mostly I took pictures when we went to check out some of all the street art in the part of the city that’s called Carmen. Oh and the pictures above, which are from the street our apartment is at! (If you didn’t know my family recently bought an apartment in Valencia!)

I love this street so much – and the apartment – and feel super at home in this place. At one end of the little street we live in is Mercadona = regular food store only they have AMAZING food because SPAIN. Honestly, the shrimps we’ve bought in that store. And also they have my favourite ice cream in the world (mint ice cream with chocolate chunks) and AMAZING caramellised popcorn which I never thought I would like but they’re sooo good.

At the other end of the street is Rausell = the best thing ever because it’s a WONDERFUL takeaway place that has 1. tapas 2. the best tapas 3. cheap tapas. MMMMMMMmMMmMMmm. Okay you all need to go to Valencia just for the food. But anyway, I promised you street art, not foodie rambling. _DSC0006 So we went to Carmen to a plaza where this gigantic mural is to start our street art journey!

Also they have balconies filled with plants. Plants we have inside in Sweden… 🙁
_DSC0027Cute. _DSC0032There’s one artist in Valencia that goes around putting up these cat stickers around town. SO CUTE._DSC0036 _DSC0039 _DSC0041 _DSC0042
More stuff!_DSC0043 _DSC0045 _DSC0049
That street also had these two right next to each other! _DSC0055And then flowers + graffiti.

These two are by the same artist (Julieta)! _DSC0069 _DSC0070There are also pretty decorations on like flower pots and walls put up to show what the renovation will result in._DSC0076And more cats! The right one looks so sad as it has no ears and is all greyed out. </3_DSC0080We had then walked in a cirle and found the funky flying cars again. After this we started walking toward our next goal of the day – the botanical garden! _DSC0085 _DSC0101
But the street art continued to pop up on our way there. It’s so much fun!!! I want street art here. :'(

And that was it for this time! Next time we’ll take a little look at the botanical garden!
Laterz.

Väldigt vackert! Gillar verkligen fågeln på den stora blomsterkrukan.
åh jag älskar streetart. <3 När jag var i Sydney besökte jag stadsdelen där folk jobbar med att skapa street art. Det var så häftigt.
