WPC: Top 5 Street Art Creations Spotted in 2017

The Weekly Photo Challenge gave us a nice theme:2017 Favorites .  This year, I’ve captured numerous photographs of Street Art. So in this post, my top five Street Art masterpieces I’ve spotted this year on my travels.


1 The first masterpiece is created by the world famous Portuguese artist Bordalo II. The man behind the trash animal. This work ( Guarda-rios) can be seen in the municipal park of Antuã, in Estarreja (Portugal).

2 Bué The Warrior is a Belgian artist living in Mexico. I was really surprised to see some, of his creations in the streets of Mexico City,and even inside shops and coffee houses:). BuéTheWarrior

3 One of my favo artists,is for sure the Belgian stencil artist and urban interventionist “Jaune”. Before he worked as garbageman, nowadays he bring the garbagemen to the walls and street of many cities. His figures are fun! This creation can be found in my hometown Oostende (Belgium).

There are so many styles and types of Street Art:  trashcreations, stencils or just the more known painted walls. I was thinking about this post a few days, and to be honest,it’s more difficult then expected. Numerous murals I’ve seen, so many beautiful creations and so difficult to pick 5 favorites. Which one is your favorite?

  1. It’s a great collection. I understand how it would have been hard to choose. My favourite is definitely the bird, with the Mexican woman closely following.

    1. Thanks for sharing your opinion Alison:). You’ve travelled a lot too already… I am sure you can recommend me some nice places known for street art? Greets stef

      1. I did do a post on street art in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico:
        and also there’s some amazing street art in Santiago, Chile. Vancouver now has an annual street art festival and over the next couple months or so I’ll probably go out and photograph some of the best of them. I love that it’s really taking off all over the world as a way to enliven urban spaces.

  2. They’re all so beautiful, it’s hard to pick one! The mixed media bird by Bordalo II is pretty cool though.

  3. My fav is the last one 😉

  4. Oh how I miss the streets of Mexico City. Have always loved the girl in the blanket. 🙂

    1. The colorful streets of Mexico City are awesome! Great murals over there. Wish you a happy new year Tiffany

  5. Hi Stef – My favorite is that collage bird in the first two shots, he looks jaunty, and like something that kids would enjoy, too.
    Best wishes for 2018, looking forward to whatever craziness you dig up! 🙂

  6. Those are all amazing, but the trash bird edges ahead for me. Wonderful.

  7. I love the Mexican mural, especially since mi familia come from Mexico! I wish you a Happy New Year, my Ostend friend! Has anyone mentioned you have epicanthic folds in your eyes like many northern Europeans? I don’t know if mine come from my Viking or Mexican side…

  8. Amazing art out there. Thanks for sharing it.

  9. Mindblowing work!!!I It is difficult to pick the best one…

  10. Really spectacular!!!!!!!!

  11. http://www.covertnovelist.com/wp-admin/post.php?post=3 hopefully this link works. I thought you might enjoy some from where I live 🙂

  12. This is actually my last day in Mexico City so I’m going to go out and look for some street art. I haven’t really seen so much here, although I haven’t looked for it either. Definitely like the woman in the last pic.

    1. Oh great, you are in Mexico City! Let me know if you went for some street art hunting,did you find any? You have been in the neighborhoods/ares I wrote about in my articles? Greets stef
