Street art is one thing, but painted public places to make life more interesting is quite another. From the moment I landed in Algeria and my taxi headed into central Algiers the first thing that struck me was the colour. It’s everywhere: from rainbow railings through to giant murals on public buildings. Here are some of my favourites…now if only the rest of the world would take a leaf out of Algeria’s book and make carparks this pleasing…

Yes. That’s me on the stairs and this is only a flavour of the colour and creativity in the streets of Algiers. Don’t get me started on the mosaics. They are an entire artistic entity of their own, worthy of a coffee table book.
