The Best of Street Art in Cyprus

As you probably know by now, I’m a fan of street art. I love tracking down street art around the world.  There’s just something about these urban art that makes you think.

In recent years, street art has evolved into something more than just graffiti. It’s now a revered form of urban art that’s now appearing on the streets and walls of cities all around the world.  It’s bold, brash and artistic, and most of all, street art is a form of expression and often has an underlying message of political and societal context.

On my recent trip to Cyprus, I was really surprised to find edgy works of art splashed across the walls of its cities. Here are some of the more outstanding street art I found mainly in Nicosia and Larnaca.
