17 of the world’s most beautiful staircases

Escalier street-art

Street art on stairs

Street art is gradually establishing itself as an art form in its own right, and the work of street artists is increasingly recognized. However, they are constantly having to find new mediums in which to exercise their talent. And, as you’ll see here, some have chosen a rather original « canvas »: the steps of public staircases.

Most of these works are mere splashes of paint for those who climb them. But for those looking down from the stairs, it’s the work as a whole they’ll see. Not all are images, and some are simply colorful decorations, making the neighborhood a more exhilarating place to be. Many of these works are the result of community efforts, showing that street art is enjoying worldwide recognition.
