What is it that you travel for?

You could be one of those travelers who favor mountain vistas and azure lagoons. Maybe you go for high-altitude homestays and to see the world’s icons? You could be out to capture the best landscape shots or a glimpse at endangered wildlife. Hell, perhaps you even travel for whiter pillow cases and hotel pool access.

Then again, you could be one of those with a complicated love of cities. You trek to famous summits and wake up for sunrise views, but ultimately, you long for the the disorder of a good city. You’re forgiving of imperfections, and you know exactly how to experience the best (and the worst) of a culture in an instant. Are you excited by noodle stalls, sprawling markets, traffic, noisy crowds, worn architecture, street art, and all the other urban signatures?

I definitely am. And I said “best street art” in the title, so if you’re reading this, I’d reckon some of that mess is for you, too.

With a taste for upheaval, photographers of urban life may never achieve the Instagram fame of those who spend their days roaming fjords and lounging on beaches. But they are out there. If you look hard enough, Instagram is filled with lovers of asymmetry, appreciators of grunge, and urban journalists. There is life beyond the flat lay! We’ve gathered a collection of the best street art around the world, curated by some pretty awesome street photographers and artists (and a maybe a few of ours, too). Let’s go!
