ALBANIA: Streetart Durrës

We already showed you a lot of nice graffiti from Albania, the art works were mostly from the capital Tirana, Korça and what you found on the way. A particularly village with very special paintings, however, is the coastal town of Durrës. It’s not just graffiti, but elaborate façade drawings. Here some of the stories are painted on the wall and provided with pictures, each work has a relationship to the homeowners and creators – which are often the same.

Durrës was already used by the Romans as a port and here started the ancient road Via Egnatia across the Balkans. The city is still one of the most important commercial centers in the country, home to a multitude of artists and it is absolutely adriatic. And here people like to paint their houses, there are really beautiful works here.
