Maynard’s Street Art Obsession – Budapest

Bunny character isolated - Stencil - Street Art Budapest

[Matthew’s View]

Budapest is not on par with Paris, Berlin, London or Amsterdam when it comes to street art; however, I did see a little bit of light trying to shine through. While Krakow had a much more serious note attached to its art, Budapest leaned more towards the light-hearted. My exploits to find art on the streets of Budapest were starting to fizzle in a big way; when I finally came across a stencil of a white rabbit. As we all learned as kids, you are supposed to follow the white rabbit. Eventually, I came across some fun pieces and one stencil of a political nature. I had to include some stickers which I usually shy away from, to round out my collection; pickings were rather slim. I couldn’t tell if Budapest was developing a street art scene or diminishing one. I did come across some rudimentary sketches which makes me think they may be growing. Fingers crossed they are in the developing column. If I do return someday, I hope to find some treasures.
