Ghent’s Graffiti Alley

October 13, 2016

Ghent is a beautiful, clean city in Belgium, mostly free from graffiti and other street art. It’s full of traditionally beautiful buildings, churches, cathedrals, castles and whatnot. Street art is seen as vandalism in Ghent and is subsequently banned. However, there are a few spots where local authorities turn a blind eye to the laws and let the artists have free rein. One spot is Werregarenstraat, otherwise known as Graffiti Alley.

The street is ever-changing with new art surfacing daily. Every inch of wall and even the fence is covered with spray-paint, making it one of the most colourful spots in Ghent.
