Storytelling through murals – Senegal!

Amazing mural art from Senegal West Africa

African Popular Cultures

There is something fascinating in murals and urban street art in general. I think it is the unusual mix of colours and graphics or just a story that is told behind the mural that simply catches my eye every time ūüôā Whether it is a piece of art, form of visual narration or just funny painting, it gives me the impression that creativity is what we sometimes need around us.
