“Cartoon and street art galore”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 December 2013

Brussels is famous for TinTin and everything else cartoon and comic book like.

Every street corner, every side of building, roofs, pavements, metro stations, the city is a living comic book. In a really tasteful way, the city breaths humour of the man made concrete and breathes art from it.

Look up and be prepared to see wall and street art in the most unusual and obscure places. On grey, wet and cold days, walking around the city can be a joy by the realisation that is given over to living comic books whether it be TinTin or other comic strips.

Get yourself a guide map, or book, for the best and most unusual works of art. If this is your type of thing, you could easily spend a whole day just walking around looking at it all - of course, broken up by beer and coffee stops!

“Cute!!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 November 2013

Definitely brings back my memory on my favorite comic books during high school time. I think people of Brussels have great sense of humor and quiet laid back. I have a great time trying to take picture of many of these murals.
