Ambling along the street before the summer sun starts to beat down, I’m minding my own business until a figure upon the wall grabs my interest. A quirky red-and-white cartoon character with a striped shirt and propeller hat upon what looks to be a pedal bike, colourful, catchy street art of this kind is now every much part of the Florentine urban cityscape. Florence continues to draw in art lovers from all over the world for its Renaissance beauty and splendour. Sure, the museums are great, but looking outside the walls and toward the vie gives you a sense of the vibrancy of the city’s contemporary creative scene. While street artists like CLET, Exit Enter and Blub are now well known for their street signs, stick men and swimming art, countless other creatives deserve equal street cred. This summer, take to the streets for Florence’s up-tempo outdoor “frescoes”.
