Urban Art – Bergen

After our cruise, we had decided to stay in Bergen for another day and had booked into a nice hotel in the centre of the city.  Once we had booked, in we took a stroll to get our bearings ending up in the  Christmas Market at the side of the lake, and noticing a stall selling prints of street art, I had a chat with the girl on duty, who pointed out some good locations for street art, off I headed off in search of it, I did find some great looking pieces, but despite it being the early afternoon it was relatively dark, making it harder to take the pictures.  In the morning I took the chance to revisit them to try to take better photographs, I will name the artists in the comments of each photograph where possible.
