BRUSSELS WALL PAINTINGS

Since 1993 Brussels has decided to paint walls in homage to cartoon heroes. A comic strip runs from one wall fresco to another in the city. An opportunity to discover these cartoonists and their characters.

You can get a map with the streets and the names of the artists.  I didn't make the whole tour, I just took pictures when I saw a wall painting.
















and this is the map where the paintings are

I think Tin Tin features a lot, or is that a separate tour.

I used to live near Woluwé St Pierre(?) underground station and that was beautifully decorate with the characters from Tintin (or Kuifje in Dutch) I believe. Never took a photo though...

I love murals. I support cities that have a mural/street art district.

When the mural is well done it adds something extra to the street. some great ones here. I would have to follow the map and see what else is around.

This is something we did not see when we lived in Germany. We were so close to Brussels that I think we forgot to visit it. I enjoyed you post I love street art.

Oh, I'm glad I took another look at the Our World posts, and found you taking photos of wonderful wall paintings. How interesting that Brussels is featuring these paintings instead of making wall-art illegal.
I'm a little late in commenting, so I hope you come back and find me.
Hugs from here, and hi from the big guy.
All the best to you and yours,
K
