I enjoy murals and graffity very much. Ofcourse I am not talking about ugly tags, but about streetart that is well done. That makes it environment more interesting or more beautiful.
Walking through a city I always have my eye on any nice mural that I encounter.
Some cities are very good for that. In Montreal, Canada, for example, you stumble upon the most gorgeous murals at every streetcorner, so to speak. Buenos Aires is another city where murals, especially about tango, are numerous. Newtown, near Sydney in Australia, is famous for it's murals. Fantastic, I enjoyed wandering through these cities and neighbourhoods so much!!!
Unfortunately, murals and graffity are not a common sight in clean and polished Singapore.
Too bad, because it gives a city an extra dimension. Imagine the immense sidewalls of the HDBbuildings adorned with gigantic murals. Wouldnt that be something?!
Luckily enough there are some areas with murals in Singapore. The 5 best places to find murals are:
1. In and around Haji Lane
In particular BluJazz Cafe and Piedra Negra are richly adorned. The latter outside as well as inside walls.
2. Around SAM@Q8 and other art spots and art schools
3. Little India
4. Around Scape
5. Here & There
Ofcourse you will find the occasional mural at other spots too. At a foodcourt, on the wall in an MRT, inside malls and even on a bridge (the bridge as a surface for street art;-))....
