Kadikoy just got louder, but not in the way you think.
No, it is not the car horns and traffic noise that making this funky neighbour hum: it’s the colours.
The founders of Mural Istanbul decided there was way too much empty space in Kadikoy. Their aim was to turn the entire district into a canvas. The municipality got on board and soon the Mural Istanbul Festival was born.
Today, there are dozens of eclectic murals enlivening those walls, where the mix of styles mean that art is interwoven into our lives. Both local and international artists have projected their visions onto the walls of Kadikoy, and they all tell their own story.
