Graffiti and advertising in Seattle

In each city we keep an eye open for graffiti and share the pictures on our blog. You can almost say that Seattle is graffiti free. Some of the advertising billboards for evening entertainment and Red Bull drinks almost look like graffiti. We also found a nice wall painting at a car workshop.

The only places where we found graffiti were some streets in Chinatown and on 2nd Avenue between King Station and the Smith Tower. We are not sure if 2nd Avenue is really safe because there were many homeless people and the openly use of drugs is no exception. Be careful not to step out of comfort zone.

In iedere stad houden we een oogje open voor graffiti en delen dan onze foto's op de blog. Je kan bijna zeggen dat Seattle graffiti vrij is. Sommige grote reclamepanelen adverterende voor het uitgangsleven en Red Bull drankjes lijken wel fel op graffiti. We vonden ook een mooie muurschildering aan een autowerkplaats. 

De weinige plaatsen waar we graffiti vonden was in Chinatown en op 2nd Avenue tussen King Station en de Smith Tower. We zijn echter niet zeker of het hier wel een heel veilige buurt is. Er zijn veel daklozen en drugs wordt openlijk op straat gebruikt. Opgelet dat je niet uit je comfort zone stapt.
