The Playbook For The Modern Man

Where To Find 16 Of The World’s Most Instagrammable Walls

Street artists and muralists are transforming formerly boring building facades into vibrant outdoor galleries. Here’s where to find the best.

The wall: once just a humble structural element, now a one-way ticket to Instagram stardom.

The feature wall is no longer the sole province of interior designers. A world’s worth of street artists and muralists are transforming cities into outdoor galleries, splashing large-scale pieces on building facades and signing their works with catchy hashtags.

Thanks to social media, these walls have become stars in their own right. They serve as backdrops for selfies, fashion shots, travel snaps, and more, and pull in thousands of likes for their posters. Say what you will about this kind of shameless ‘gramming: people can’t get enough of it.

From London to LA to Melbourne, here’s where to find 16 of the world’s most Instagrammable walls.
