Europe is the real home of street art and modern art. But do you know that almost each European country has its own distinct flavors in street art?

France is quite political. The graffiti and quotes you see in street art are full of progressive political messages. Humor element can be found in the street art of UK and Russia.
From a designer’s point of view, Spain uses lots and lots of colors. Italy and Germany use women portraits in most of their street artworks.

I have separated all these countries individually so you can easily spot the cultural differences in their art and thinking.

I should clarify that I made the titles you will see below. But of course, the artworks are properly credited to the artists. Sometimes these artists use a codename as they want to avoid authorities so we are also quoting them with their codenames.
