Photoblog: Street Art in the Balkans

~~Being back home has been hectic. New travel diary updates will be uploaded in the upcoming days. However, to tide you over, have a photoblog of Balkan street art in all its forms (words, pictures, mosaics, murals), from the purely aesthetic to the politically motivated. Mostar and Plovdiv had by far the most extensive street art scenes that I found.~~

This artist must be fairly prolific because there was an identical cat in Sarajevo.
