Just a few steps away from the Cathedral, on Odminiu street, a wonderful mural by local artist Jurgis Tarabilda, embellishes a wall. On the other side of Nėris river, along Olimpiečių street, head to Graffiti Pier, where it is legal to create freely. The demand is so high that the works displayed change often—making it one of the greatest street art galleries in Vilnius. Other spots worth checking out: Around the Frank Zappa monument and all over Užupis.
In the last few years Vilnius has organised a street art festival—LITERATŲ STREET—that resulted in a bigger presence of artform. In 2008, a group of artists had the idea to decorate the street with artwork related to authors. A wall was opened for painters, and other field artists, to create objects made of metal, wood, and glass.
