Street art: Marseille, France

France - Marseille Dali sculpture

I knew that I would discover amazing architecture and unique cultural neighbourhoods when I arrived in Marseille, but this southern France city surprised me with its extensive street art.

From the numerous sculptures by Dali in the Vieux Port to the endless graffiti found in small streets and various neighbourhoods, I was treated to an endless array of styles like at La Friche’s skatepark:

Or just interesting images spotted while walking around:

And to see detail like this:

And one of my faves, from the La Friche neighbourhood:
Marseille - pearl

And definitely one of my faves from the city:

Marseille - tree of life

A contemporary city that has slowly emerged from its rough past, Marseille is a multicultural city that is developing into a unique centre of modern culture.
