As you probably have spotted from previous ‘Graphics’ posts, or seen in our quarterly ‘Graphics’ report, at “Blink” we are huge fans of street art. It was an extra special treat to see so much amazing street art in Istanbul. It seemed to be quite focused in Beyoglu, where we were staying, leaving the more ancient and historical sections of the city pretty unscathed- as it should be.
At each turn, I spotted really interesting variations on stencil designs- small and punchy. There were larger more artistically created pieces too. My favourites, however were the multiple variations on the yellow fist design. Does anyone know who these are by? I felt like maybe these were from Istanbul’s version on Eine perhaps- a specific look and handwriting around a very focused theme.
Istanbul is home to the incredible street art focused Milk Gallery which, if you’re a fan of this art-form, is one for the ‘must visit’ list.
