Portraits on the walls

Street art makes a huge impact in cities, and smaller locations, around the globe.  Sometimes purely artistic, sometimes there to pass on a serious message; sometimes black and white, sometimes multi-coloured; sometimes subtle, sometimes in your face.

Here is a selection of monochrome murals:

  1. Fabulous collection Debbie. Love the Coney Island one, so well done, and the old couple and Anne Frank.
    Thanks for contributing.


    • Yes, much of Coney Island was closed for winter when I visited – would love to see it summer and enjoy its murals, rides and food! And the Anne Frank one is a great portrait of her – sits outside the Anne Frank Centre on Rosenthaler Strasse
