Belgrade has a very interesting street art culture. In a middle of several cultural influences the architecture and the size of the streets makes the walls a major art scenery. Like a lot of cities from Eastern Europe war and communism changed a lot the way the city looks. And like discussed in a previous post walls and stencils always been part of people expressions in hard times. Hopefully these days are over but the street art culture remains and lot of empty spaces are available so local artists can express themselves. Politics remaining a very inspiring topic.
Coloring the white city is another documentary I found. The full version is available on Youtube.
A crew going by BUG for Belgrade Underground Geeks did a lot stencils in the city. Here are some of their work:
This is the third documentary I’m referring to. I’m sure after watching them all you’ll start getting a pretty good understanding of this art and like me getting impatient for the sunny days to come so you can improve your skills at doing stencils.
Thanks for reading.
