location: Werftstraße 156

‘What kind of human beings do we want to be?
We are experiencing a difficult situation throughout the world. The pandemic has affected us all. It is time to question what direction to take, as individuals and as a human race. Our actions affect everyone. Some of the represented species have become extinct and the others are in a critical situation. It is important to become aware and start making big and small changes. It’s everyone’s responsibility.’ shares the Mexican Adry Del Rocio. …


Street Art Cities continues to promote urban art, artists, festival, galleries and more across the globe. Our hunters are the driving force of our initiative, constantly hunting, scanning socials, traveling and more. Even in these strange times they continue to share the best from their city and travels. So we thought the time is right to reboot our infamous ‘hunterviews’: sharing the stories of our hunters, sharing their interest, passion and dedication for urban art. The first in a (hopefully) long series….

In his 6th solo show Portugese artist VHILS is breaking new ground around the concepts of light and matter. Like floating elements, the details of his works reveal a tension between a humanistic view and the harsh reality of the world that surrounds us. Through their frozen aspect, as though they were congealed in space and time, these new works are teeming with strong emotions. …

In Apple’s new iOS 14 on iPhone and iPad, the Apple Maps app now will encourage you to explore your city by showing you curated guides, created by publications like Lonely Planet, Time Out, and… Street Art Cities!

We’ve been working with the Apple Maps team to bring the unique street art knowledge and beautiful photographs from our hunter community into the Apple Maps app. This is a great way to allow a new audience of people that might not be as familiar with street art to discover what their city has to offer.

Some of our hunters have already been able to help us build beautiful guides around their cities, some of which are already live and several others that will go live in the coming weeks. If you’re a hunter on Street Art Cities and you’re willing to help create a guide for your city, please send us a message. …

Working passionately with a community of street art fans ourselves, we strongly believe in crowd based value creation. Simply put, together we can achieve more. Something we learned how to do with Street Art Cities.

Once in a while we stumble upon similar communities that know how to collectively share cool stuff in cities across the world. Spotted by Locals is such an initiative and we’re impressed!

We noticed they also mapped out cool spots across the world on a city by city model. We both believe locals are like mayors to these city maps and put them front and center in both development and content generation. …

Viale Stefano Franscini 27, Lugano Swiss

Nevercrew latest addition continues to dig their whale’s fixation. Admiring the birth of whales, which — as they did a few years ago — is for the artists “a symbol of the relationship between man and nature, because they carry with them their entire history, the excessive power of industry, exploitation, dehumanization, pollution, while maintaining a strong empathic and communicative value as living beings in an absolute, almost iconic and decontextualized sense ». …
