Do you have any interesting street art near you?
We stumbled upon this colorful alley simply by happenstance while walking through the quaint city of Ghent. A haven for street artists, this short stretch is constantly changing as new paint is added day after day. This is an open canvas in a “graffiti-friendly” city.

We overheard a walking tour where someone explained the difference between graffiti and street art: the former predominantly features a name or symbol while the latter is artwork with characters and stories.
