Not everybody has the time or money to travel around the entire world to admire the evolution of street art. This is why the book called Mural Masters: A New Generation was released, in order to show the world the beautiful art that is out there.

This book offers information about each mural from where it’s from, to who did it, and even their social media handles!

This particular article takes us onto a journey to some of the best contemporary murals from around the world. If you want to check out the full article, click here.

Mural by Agostino Iacurci
Ficus Indica – Mural by Agostino Iacurci – Munich, Germany

Standing at 21 x 12.7 metres tall, Iacurci uses bright and warm colours to create this image of a cactus balancing four small plants. Iacurci is known for his use of geometric shapes and colours to create visual masterpieces.

Since he is an Italian artist, he attempts to instil dreams of Italy and Southern Europe into the people of Munich.

Mural by WD
Knowledge Speaks, Wisdom Listens – Mural by WD – Athens, Greece

This incredible owl mural was created by street artist WD (Wild Drawing) for the Petit Paris d’Athènes art festival 2016.

The owl symbolises wisdom while also being a symbol for the Greek goddess Athena. This mural clearly stood out at this festival since for this reason, since the city of Athens is named after her.

WD tells us how “the owl as a bird is famous for its exceptionally good far vision, particularly in low light. Nowadays Greece is experiencing a really dark phrase and I think it’s time for us here and around the globe, to recall this creature’s wisdom.”

Mural by Okuda San Miguel
The New Mona Lisa – Mural by Okuda San Miguel – Paris, France

This magnificent mural was artist Okuda San Miguel‘s tallest yet. Standing at 50 metres high and taking less than a week to create, this mural is an amazing example of the contemporary art that is out there in our world.

This mural is recognised by many as it is a modernised version of the famous Mona Lisa painting, which is also why it is on the side of a Paris building.
