Over the last ten years, urban artists of international standing and local art enthusiast have turned the streets of Oslo into one of the city’s most interesting and vibrant art scenes. We have mapped out some of the highlights – get your hiking shoes ready for a gallery visit out of the ordinary.
From the city centre, we recommend taking any east-bound metro train and start your explorations from the metro stop Tøyen. Tøyen is a neighbourhood particularly rich in urban art, and even aims at becoming Scandinavia's largest outdoor gallery before the Munch Museum leaves the area in 2020.
The clickable map below contains information about the location and artists of selected works and graffiti areas. Please note that, due to the nature of urban art, some works may have been altered or have disappeared altogether.
