Street Art in Copenhagen

geometric street art covering the side of a building in Copenhagen

Upon arrival in Copenhagen I could just feel the creativity and open-mindedness bursting out around every corner. Creativity was especially evident in the street art that was found often covering whole buildings. I always love looking for street art when I'm traveling, and this time I was able to find building-sized murals all over this awesome city. 

I know that I'd love to live in a building decorated as beautiful as some of these buildings in the photos below! Would you? My favorite piece from the street art I saw in Copenhagen is the white building that has three sections covered in coordinating designs. It's simple, yet cool.

  4. I honestly can say, I have never seen such stark contrast between architecture and art in a city setting. Wow, that is opposite ends of the spectrum!

    Beautiful photos.

  6. I love walking around cities graffiti-spotting. It's a great way to discover unknown corners of the city.
