Graffiti in Ljubljana, Slovenia

I love urban art, whether the sanctioned squiggles left on the road by contractors or clever subversiveness in the form of graffiti.

Travelling a few months ago to Slovenia, I was struck by the graffiti on the walls of its capital city, Ljubljana.

Very little of the city’s graffiti appeared to be screaming obscenities. Rather, the city appears to have embraced wall art, and it seems to relish the playful, colourful and political.

You’re as likely to come across graffiti on an old people’s home, or some beautiful 19th Century building as you are along a urine-reeking dingy underpass.

An old people’s home? Yep, here it is:
