For whatever reason I didn’t expect Tartu street art to be any good (of course random graffitti can be found in each place but that’s not what I’m talking about). But when I was wandering around this great town, my first stop during the Estonian trip, I started notticing some cool pieces here and there. Then I’ve realized that since Tartu is a city of students and around 20% of the population of this town attends the local universities, there must be some crative souls in this crowd.
Where to find Tartu street art
After walking few hours around Tartu I found some kind of pattern of where to look for some street art pieces. Almost every abandoned building, a power box on the street or a destroyed gate had something on. And all the street art examples I found here were really good ones! I’ve even notticed that there must be few street art artists that are pretty big in here as a lot of work was made in the same style or simply was signed with the same name (Edward von Lõngus).
Later on, when I was done with exploring Tartu, I found online a map of street art in this city (update: the link doesn’t work anymore but I will try to find something new!). Too bad I haven’t seen it before as apparently Tartu is full of spots with great work made by local artists and I’d gladly have seen more of it! But what I’ve managed to find wasn’t all that bad anyway and I think I can easily add Tartu to my list of places with a decent street art scene!
