Street art in Minsk

For a long time Minsk was a city known for its clean and empty streets. In 2013 a local street-artist Dream used to joke that in order to make a Minsk street-art excursion you have to paint all the street art a night before. Then some first officialy approved projects appeared: these were the festivals Urban Myths and Vulica Brazil as well as Signal Project – a magazine that appeared in 2011 to portray current street art. Urban festival Vulica Brazil festival happened for several years in a row and Belarusian and Brazilian artists together turned Kastryčnickaja street in one of the most popular and trendy streets in Minsk. There you can find all kinds of street art: big murals and small pictures, art objects and installations. Here are some of the best spots that you should not miss if you want to get an impression of street art in Minsk.
