Famous Lithuanian street art attracts attention of journalists at The Telegraph

2017-09-22

The British newspaper The Telegraph has published an article about ten cities around the world that are crazy about street art. The graffiti on the façade of the building belonging to Baltisches Haus proudly takes top position in the list. The art became an integral part of the image of Kaunas some time ago and still attracts attention, and not only from tourists.

The author writes in the article that the Temporary Capital of Lithuania is serious about street art, as dozens of pieces of graffiti are positioned all over the city’s public spaces. The Brazilian artists who call themselves Os Gemeos, twin brothers who happen to have Lithuanian ancestry, left an original work of art in Kaunas on the building where an art gallery is located.

Manama, the capital of Bahrain, São Paulo in Brazil, Nuuk in Greenland, Redfern in Sydney and Guam, an unincorporated territory of the United States of America, were also included in the list of cities. Accra in Ghana, Honolulu in Hawaii, Lincoln in England and Florence, the cradle of Italian art, also made the list.
