Art on Cows Brussels

Art on Cows Brussels

In my weekend getaway to Brussels, I witnessed an unusual art exhibition: Art on Cows. The happy cows were spread across the entire city, with a bigger concentration in the Atomium area. I took several photos, because I thought the idea was cool. It seems many people thought it was cool, because I started to notice such colorful cows in Bucharest, then I met them in Switzerland, in Lugano.

Anyway, here are the cows I met in Brussels in the summer of 2003 (I can’t believe this was nine years ago):

What do you think? Do you like this kind of art? Is it better than graffiti? Have you seen the cows elsewhere in the world?
