Marking and Mapping the Walls

It started in Mexico, with Rafa Fernandez De Castro’s vivid piece for Fusion on the virtual street art tours composed by Street Art Chilango.

Using GoogleMaps, the movement maps street art that can be updated and catalogued, and best of all, visited remotely.

A fabulous medium, the next question is, ‘where else?’

Google has this covered: The Street Art Project at the Google Cultural Institute, Map the Walls, enables you to search by artist or location, hangout with the artists or view the digital exhibitions.

Thus far, the Middle East is slightly under-represented, with just two artists/works representing Palestine-Israel, 12 in Tunisia, four in Morocco and six in Dubai.

Share Your Finds

However, the ‘share your finds‘ facility enables spotters to upload images and, hopefully, share the exquisite pieces from around the region.
