West Balkans - Street Art

You may be thinking that Street Art isn’t really a primary characteristic of the West Balkans. However, there’s much more to shaping the personality of a region than structures or nature. Perfection is in the details, and that’s why today we will showcase a bit of awesome art you will see while roaming the local streets in the upcoming DLC.

Street art is a form of public visual expression found on urban surfaces such as walls, involving diverse techniques. Serving as a unique blend of self-expression, social commentary, and cultural engagement, street art often challenges norms and adds aesthetic value to public spaces.

Our 2D graphic designers are always happy to help out and thanks to them we were able to add cool street art to the game for vibrancy and realism, and to populate the otherwise empty walls in the region. This is mostly done in places where real street art exists, but we did not merely copy the art, rather we have created something that pays homage to the original spirit and style. For instance, in one of the harbors, there are motifs of ships and the sea. In Tirana, there's "Captain Truck", a restaurant with a large mural on the building facade. And in Fier, there's a beautiful piece of art on the facades of apartment buildings.

Our examples are just three of many and we hope you will notice as many of these stylish additions as possible while driving across the West Balkans DLC.
