Today starts a series of three street art posts from Ljubljana with photos that were mysteriously left under my doormat. Really.
It starts with the sign that would make happy a certain demographic. As it is, in Slovenian pot means path and such signs are all along the 30 km (20 miles) circle around Ljubljana, the capital of Slovenia, where the barb wire fence which Italian army built during the World War II used to surround the city. Yesterday you could see a bunker left from those times when I posted an introduction to this series.
If you follow this Path of Remembrance and Comradeship (PST), you reach the Stožice Arena which I showcased yesterday. Then there are certain stairs, and fences, and you know… stuff, and there you go, you land smack bang in the land of wall art, maybe not as public as some other, not really seen from the street, but as I mentioned reading about it in the interview with the photographer Martha Cooper in the main Slovenian newspaper (at least it used to be when I was studying journalism) – she is to blame.
I will not pretend to know much about the artists, I just recognise Azram (or Ramz), 1107 Klan and Hrom. I did try to get in contact with somebody who could show me around this 3-level never-finished shopping centre. I failed but then these photos mysteriously appeared on my doorstep. I’m so lucky.
