You know you’re definitely in the city when you’re surrounded by neon lights. But what if
you want to bring some of the party inside? We had a look around for some of our favorite
neon art lights that will definitely make your world lit.


1. Is it a light? Is it art? Is it a rainbow? Obviously, it’s all three of these, which is why it
caught our eye. The best part is, you don’t need to worry about hanging it—just plug
it in and go.


2. While this isn’t strictly a neon light, it’s a pretty good alternative, since it uses
low-energy LED lights and a shadow box-style frame which means it’s more
eco-friendly, and also gives the designers more room for creativity, resulting in this
quirky, poetic motif.


3. Speaking ofSp lit, we love this sign that takes it to the next level. Get some cool
speakers and you’re all set to have a good time.


4. Why not have a light of a light? This playful, humorous design is a cool addition to
any space.


Cacti are all the rage right now—why not try one in neon light form?


If you’ve ever walked around Bushwick or the LES, you’ll know the power of street art to
brighten an area and make a statement. Even Nintendo’s Pokémon app had street art as
pokéstops, and although most of the street art wasn’t there when we stopped by, it was
definitely interesting to see them treated with the same cultural importance as other, more
permanent, landmarks—and also to find out the artists behind some of the pieces that were
still around.

But street art can obviously be found all around the world, so we rounded up 10 of the best
art murals around the world:

1. With his skilful addition of a shadow, street artist Odeith makes this vignette look 3D.

2. Paying homage to motifs from indigenous culture in Mexico, Farid Rueda paints his
version of the Mexican eagle.

3. It’s pretty hard to see this one unless you’re in a helicopter, but artist duo Ella & Pitr
painted a giant man napping in a parking lot in Italy.


4. This mural in Athens, painted by WD aka Wild Drawing, plays with the building’s
architecture in ‘What if I fall? But imagine, what if you fly?’ for a charming encouragement
to chase after your dreams.

5. Delicate and emotional, this piece by Icelandic artist Guido Van Helten isn’t exactly street
art—it’s painted inside—but its artistic merit definitely makes it worth adding to the list.


6. This beautiful, expressive cat piece also plays with the location of the wall on which it’s
painted. Emerging from the bushes, this vibrant, colorful cat was painted by Belgian artist Dzia.

7. This example of trompe l’oeil looks so real it might actually trick you into thinking there’s
a hole in the wall of this building in Marseille. But don’t worry, there isn’t—artist 1010 is
just incredibly talented.

8. Playful and colorful, this piece in Montreal features a very clever use of the building’s bricks.
