I love good street art. Since I started to live in Istanbul I have seen the street art scene developing very fast. The quality is getting better every year.

For all of you who want to discover en enjoy the products of these artists there is now a new app developed by young entrepreneur and street artist Erbil Sivaslıoğlu and his partners. It is a free iOS and Android app, aiming to show as many people as possible how the walls of İstanbul are increasingly being glorified with gorgeous works of graffiti.

The Street Art Istanbul app has been taking the pulse of this art form, enabling its users access to locations where different street art can be found via an online map in addition to providing information about street artists who perform it and the neighborhoods where the works are done, since its launch in 2012.

Sivaslıoğlu, Onur Erdemol, Gizem Oktay and Esra Pencereci are the partners who developed the app, which was launched with the slogan “Never miss the street art near you” and offers updates on the contemporary street art scene in İstanbul.
