Let’s remember the Mural Istanbul Festival. Local and international artists applied their work onto the sides of many buildings in Kadıköy. After the Festival, Istanbul’s street art culture had grown dramatically. Here are three of those works that we were simply unable to not be impressed by:

1) No More Lies

Creator of “No More Lies” had multiple drawings at his home but then he let the colors and lines wander off at the streets. You can see bizarre animals such as foxes and penguins all over Istanbul.

2) Canavar

“Canavar”, meaning, Monster. If you’re looking for a welcomed nightmare, this work is a must-see. And you will be pretty shocked when you figure out that those monsters are extremely beautiful because of their uniqueness.

3) Lakormis
