Graffiti in the French port of Sete

I really loved visiting Sete during our tour of the South of France. I enjoy taking pictures of boats and we ate gorgeous food and enjoyed the city before heading to the Camargue.

There was another treat in store, as we came across lots of street art whilst walking around the port, so I got my camera out and started clicking!

WARNING: EXPLICIT GRAFFITI AHEAD

Boats in Sete

The shipping containers were covered in graffiti, so if you want your own tour then thats where I would start.

Stencilled graffiti seemed to be the most popular way to spray.

This artist makes a dig at an ex.

A passionate embrace.

A lot going on in this one.

Three men. Not sure who they are.

And finally a cheeky squirrel…

It was definitely worth translating some of the graffiti to see the point it is making. Most of this graffiti was sexual or about relationships but political street art often tells an important story about the artist.
