Painting and Spraying Belgrade facades become as usual as going to top up your gas tank. Belgrade didn’t have a strategy neither the plan to become the capital of Street Art. But it happened. People of Belgrade are under constant media attack. First strike comes from that whole world is against us. Then that world is against the main Serbian sport people. Then that there is always injustice towards Serbs. Then if you are vegetarian you are a Western Spy. People feel stuck and feel like they being lied for decades. They lost trust in people and surviving mode is on maximum. All of this pressure that each individual holding within end up sooner or later on the walls. For foreigners visiting Belgrade for a Stag Party Weekend one of the things they go for is a epic Graffiti tour.
How did it all started?
At the early beginning it started with Belgrade Suburbs. Very fast it came to to downtown at some shady areas far away from the eyes of the Public. Then after months it become normal that graffiti are just everywhere. Even the police building are nowadays covered with graffiti’s. People who live in the very nice buildings tried several times to paint over but just a day after they get a new art on the walls. Explosion of people emotions took over the Belgrade walls.

Some about the world we living in. Some about the food. Some about soccer. Its one complete ultimate Mess. Belgrade is the capital of the true pure Street art. We are not talking here about super expensive posh murals over the walls. This is the real shit.
