Florence, Italy. August 2014.
First part of a whole truckload of photos of street art that I have unintendedly amassed over the last few months. One thing I love about Florence is how they don’t try to cover up the street art; instead they allow–even encourage–it to become part of the personality of the city.
One of the most ubiquitous sets of art I’ve seen around the city is by the artist I only recently found out is called Enter/Exit. Simple but evocative–and I have a whole lot more photos of these in succeeding months. Is there such a thing as hoarding street art via photos?
Another set of art focuses on ‘enhancing’ street signs. I know there’s a street artist who specializes in them, but I’m not sure if all the ones I’ve seen are by him. It’s always a nice surprise when you’re walking around the city and happen to look up at a street sign.
This next set is something I also keep seeing around the city, and on instagram. I have tons more that I’ll include in the next set of Florence street art posts. I just found out about the tag on these artworks via instagram, L’arte sa nuotare. I think the artist also has these around London, etc.
And of course there are a whole lot of other interesting, weird or just plain random ones that are not necessarily street art, but I guess altogether, when they’re up on the same wall or post or alleyway, they kind of are, in a way.

And of course, Florence also has its share of live street art
