The street art scene in Istanbul is fascinating. You will find a lot of stuff around the popular and touristic places of the district Beyoğlu and around the Galata Tower. You will find works by C215, Evol, Pixel Pancho and of a lot of locals.
JR was recently in town for pastings of his series ‘Wrinkles of the City. For some of his pieces you will get the best point of view from the ferry boat on the way to Eyüp.
On the asian part of Istanbul you will find especially some great wall paintings which were done for the ‘Mural Istanbul Festival’ in 2014. One example, is the work ‘Ufo Attack’ by Sepex and M-City.
I uploaded 83 photos from Istanbul to my gallery, where you can find more than 1800 photos from all over the world,in my Street Art Collection – Enjoy:)
If you go to Istanbul, download the App Street Art Istanbul for a convenient tour through the streets.
Finally I made a documentation of 13 pastings and locations of JR’s project ‘Wrinkles of the City’. He has chosen some wonderful facades in the districts Mitte, Friedrichshain and Kreuzberg.
If you want to go on a tour along his pastings you can follow my map on everplaces. And for rainy days or preview I uploaded them to my gallery page.

I collected ten of a even larger series of pastings by JR. The works are part of the series ‘Wrinkles of the City’. JR is invited by the Gallery Springmann for a show which is to see from april, 17th – may, 25th, 2013. For a tour through the city I uploaded the photos to everplace, including a map. The photos collected in a gallery, you can find here: JR and other artists in Berlin
May the other pastings, will be also online in a few days – enjoy :)
