Places to Find Street Wall Art Around the World
11 Oct 2017PLACESBY SweetEscape

Street art is fleeting and controversial. Some people say it is vandalism, while others say it’s a great art form free for all to see. For sure, it is a great backdrop for a photo shoot.

London

London has one of the biggest and best collections of street art in the world. One of the most famous street artists is Banksy, whose distinctive stencil artwork has regularly appeared in London for more than a decade and often to criticize the government. You can go on the hunt for unique pieces of street art around Shoreditch, Croydon, and Southbank. There is even a street art tour you can go on.

Melbourne

Continue your art journey in Melbourne at the free outdoor galleries in Hosier Lane. With the cobblestone and overflowing art cluster, you will want to take pictures all the way down the street. If you go out shopping just off Bourke Street Mall, look for Union Lane, an ever-changing montage of artworks that cover almost every inch.

New York

New York is another big city full of murals. Unlike Melbourne that has some dedicated streets for street art, New York’s street art are spread out because artists can get fined if caught. You can mostly find them in Queens, Brooklyn, and Manhattan by renowned artists like LMNOPI, Joel Bergner, and Invader, who puts up pixelated tile compositions in cities around the world.

Singapore

Street art in Singapore tends to depict culture and traditions of the many backgrounds that exist there. You can see a mural by a local artist Yip Yew Chong in Tiong Bahru that is of an old school roadside hawker stall with patrons happily savouring their meal. Head on over to Little India and Jalan Besar to find bold and colourful paintings. More than just a tourist attraction, Chinatown blends the old and new with some nice murals; visit the Amoy Street Food Centre, Smith Street, Kreta Ayer Road and Sago Lane to view them.

Real Stories from Real Clients: What Makes You Love SweetEscape?
28 Nov 2019STORIESBY SweetEscape

The idea of getting someone professional to take your photos might not appeal to everyone, but here in SweetEscape we firmly believe that once you tried a SweetEscape session, you'd immediately fall in love with it and would want to book more. No, this is not a marketing campaign, it's a fact! Don't believe us? Check out these real stories from our real clients on why they love SweetEscape so much!

1. The First Timer

Our very own Creative Director, Jalu, wasn't really a big fan of being photographed. However, after 8 months of working in SweetEscape and (naturally) getting exposed to SweetEscape's beautiful photos in a lot of beautiful locations around the world, Jalu started to feel that maybe being photographed isn't such a bad idea after all.

So, for his family holiday in Tokyo this year-end, Jalu booked his first-ever session. What impressed him the most is how easy the booking process turned out to be–just through the app. His interesed was piqued even higher when he met the photographer who was very friendly and easy to converse with.

"I also noticed how professional their cameras and gears were! So it made me even more convinced that my photos would turn out to be great!" said Jalu.

When Jalu received the photos, he was surprised at how beautiful the photos turned out to be. His wife loved the session and the photos, his young daughter–which he feared wouldn't enjoy the shoot–also absolutely loved it, even he himself looked good in the photos!

"The photographers really know how to find the perfect angle for you, I never thought my photos would turn out these great!" said Jalu. "I absolutely love it, and I'd definitely book more sessions when I travel to other interesting locations in the future."

2. The 'Seasoned' Lovers

Sheena Buraga and her husband Daniel are truly one of the most unique clients SweetEscape had recently. Their 'Seasons of Love' pre-nup concept is really inspiring, and SweetEscape is proud and honoured to be a part of their love journey from the very start when Daniel first proposed to Sheena in Tokyo (spring), to their pre-nup shots in Nami Island (autumn) and Niseko (winter), and finally to their final pre-nup shot in Siargao (summer).

"Between May and June 2018 after the proposal, we started planning for our wedding. At first we thought that the photos in Tokyo would be our proposal / engagement photos, and we wanted to capture another pre-nup photoshoot, not with SweetEscape. But when seeing our proposal photos shot by SweetEscape, everybody said that our pre-nup shoots will look less beautiful compared to the super-beautiful photos of our proposal taken by SweetEscape! Considering this, and since we were travelling to Nami Island, South Korea in the autumn, we decided to create this 'Four Seasons of Love' pre-nup concept with SweetEscape!" said Sheena when asked about what made them keep taking their pre-nup shots with us.

3. The Reporter

TV reporter Najla Hilabi always puts an extra care for her Instagram feed; she wants it to look extra neat and beautiful, and this was her initial reason to use SweetEscape. After knowing about us from an Instagram ad, she decided to book her first session for her trip to Prague.

"I don't know if I'd ever go back to Prague again, so I thought it was important to capture my moments there with a proper photography service," said Najla.

What impressed her was eventhough there were some language barrier with the photographer, the photos still turned out beautiful, and the photographer brought her to the hidden gems of the already enchanting city. This, in addition to the beautiful photos she received afterwards, made her book another session for her recent trip to Tokyo.

"I feel that SweetEscape always maintains their standard of quality. You don't just get your raw photos, you get perfectly curated and professionally edited photos, and this careful production process really makes me love SweetEscape!"
