When going through blogs for must visits in Ghent, you will soon find something everyone mentions: the werregarrenstraat, better known as graffiti street.
A new look everyday
This street looks different everyday. So even for the natives, it’s an ever changing street. That’s because it is allowed to show your skills there. Graffiti-artists come and go to make their temporary stamp on the walls. A couple of days later their work is gone, but something new appeared.
Reason for my visit: a portrait!
But I wasn’t there only for fun. I also made a portrait of a friend. Which is fun too actually. As she is a colourful person with a lot of interests and thoughts, I thought the street would be a fun representation of that. And I was correct. See for yourself in the gallery below.
