You are interested in art, but you want to enjoy the sun and warmth of the mild Valencian climate while enjoying it? You want to discover art that is vibrant and lively? You like to add some exercise to your art experience?
Then Pelican Bike’s street art bike tour Valencia is the perfect solution to all your wishes. On bike, we will explore the street art scene of Valencia, which is very much alive and vivid. Local and international artists have decorated the city with their wall murals, sometimes to prettify the Valencian walls and houses, and sometimes to get across a political message.
The police van of the graffiti artist Escif, that we will discover on our Valencia bike cruise, makes police brutality visible and wants to voice the protests of the citizens. The works of Escif, also known as “Banksy of Valencia”, can be found in different areas of the city and give the observer food for thought. Why is the wolf pack attacking a taxi? Why is the TV staring back at the watching family? Your mind will be occupied by his inspiring political street art.
If you like it bright and colorful, the works of Julieta XLF will make an impact on you. The Japanese influences of their colorful murals make their art easy to recognize. Imaginary animals, rainbows, colorful plants and sweet girls trigger the imagination and offer the observer a completely new fantasy-world to dwell in.
A Valencia city bikes tour can’t leave out a very special urban street artists: on the On Plaza Lope de Vega, right next to the world’s smallest house, you can find the special urban art of the artist Arqui Costura. She embroidered house fronts and shop windows with stitch patterns, most of them depicting flowers. Thus, she soothes the eyes and spirit of the people living in the city and translates handicraft into urban street art.
If you like mysterious and dark topics, the Spanish urban artist Deih might spark your interest. Valencia cycles leads you to his art. You will see his figures who seem to be lifeless and trapped in themselves. His art is evidently inspired by comics so that fantasy and far away galaxies find their expression in his street art.
The Argentinian artist Hyuro, who currently lives in Valencia, has dark elements in his urban art too although he is very realistic in the way he is depicting the darkness. His baldy injured deer in the spotlight, that we will discover on our Valencia bike tour, show us how often we are nothing but spectators who can’t change what is going on in the word – or just can’t be bothered to make a difference.
You see, this street art bike tour of Valencia will not leave you unimpressed. There is a whole new world out there, waiting to be discovered. With Pelican Bike you will learn all about the urban street art scene of Valencia in an entertaining way. See you around soon for this very arty one of the Spain bike tours!
