Hidden Street Art

There’s a world of brilliant, creative, inspired street art out there, if you know where to look. For some artists, hidden art can be truly special – something that you come across when you’re not expecting it, and that you can quietly appreciate while everyone else misses it completely. One of my favourite examples of this is The Little People Project from a brilliantly clever artist named Slinkachu.

Hidden street art can come in all shapes and forms – from tiny, hidden models to murals that are tucked away in places you wouldn’t expect. Below is an example of some creative street art that you wouldn’t necessarily expect to see.

There’s often a ton of hidden street art lurking around major cities – you often just need to know where to look. If you’ve found any examples of interesting, hidden street art – we’d love to hear about what you’ve discovered.
