In Beşiktaş, our steps lead to art…
To contribute to the urban aesthetics of Beşiktaş and to bring the citizens together with art in their daily lives, Beşiktaş Municipality started to work on “Beşiktaş Street Art”. With the partnership of DYO, Donut Store, Montana Colors and with the collaboration of Istanbul Comics and Art Festival (ICAF), Beşiktaş's stairs are colored up; in Beşiktaş, our steps lead to art…
Our Municipality has launched a meaningful project that combines Beşiktaş Street Art concept and Street Artworks in Beşiktaş under the same roof. Firstly, the street stairs in three different neighborhoods of Beşiktaş were painted by street artists within the project Stairs Colored Up. The dog motifs on the Dizi Street stairs in Türkali Neighborhood bear the artist Somon's signature, the moray eel motif on the Asmalı Hamam Street stairs in Ortaköy Neighborhood bears the artist Rakun's signature and the geometric patterns on the Kalkan Street stairs in Abbasağa Neighborhood bear the artist Max on Duty’s signature.
The Street Art performances of our artists will continue on different suitable spots of our district.
