During my stay in Skopje, I did a lot of walking and explored most of the city centre. I found the Skopje street art fascinating and beautiful, and at the end of my trip I had quite a collection of photos. Initially, I noticed that there are many formal statues around, especially on the bridges and in Macedonia Square. For example, Philip II of Macedon, political leaders and Alexander the Great. However, there are also more informal statues, with everyday life themes. These include a homeless man, musicians and a lady walking in heels.
Additionally, there were a lot of wall paintings and/or graffiti. Behind a large shopping centre, there is an area labelled on GoogleMaps as Street Art and Graffiti Gallery, Gradot ubav. This area has a long wall with segments of different graffiti paintings. I also found graffiti under bridges and on the sides of buildings. Besides the pictures, there was also a lot of tagging. Some of this was even on other statues and art pieces, but those were usually just spray-painted words. I didn’t include them in this gallery as I didn’t find them as artistic.
The pictures of Skopje street art speak for themselves so I won’t write a lot more. Enjoy the images!
