Local Street Artists you should definitely follow on Instagram

Feb 20, 2023 0 comments


Some people might perceive street art as a form of vandalism, which is an illegal act since such creativity is being manifested along corridors and walls in open spaces. Most often, this form of art gets associated solely with the random scribbling of words along the walls of private property. Yet, street art goes beyond that notion.

Street art is created by artists who have something to say and want the masses to see. Unlike paintings that can only be showcased inside the four walls of a museum or exhibit, street art is open to everyone, making it an avenue for telling stories and breathing life into a plain, concrete wall without any force of boundaries.

These artists know better and have taken advantage of the limitless exposure street art offers.

Also known as EXLD, JJ Zamoranos is an artist who extracts inspiration from others in the same field to further his creative progression, yet, at the same time is able to create a piece that is quintessentially JJ Zamoras. 



This artist incorporates anime figures, graffiti, and some personal touches into his art. When asked about his usual themes, the street artist confessed how much he romanticizes chaos and anarchy, saying he is deeply attached to the idea and the synchronous operation between affection and carnage.

This is graffiti art at its finest! Meet APOK, a street artist who focuses on graffiti art. Judging from his works, he is a force to be reckoned with in the world of street art. What made his graffiti stand out from the rest? 


It’s because of his use of solid clean lines and big, chunky letters all the while adding more elements to it to make it unique from all his other works. It’s fascinating to know that one interest of a person could also breed into a new one, which is exactly how his graffiti artistry stemmed, APOK’s fondness for hip-hop back in his high school days was the very foundation of his love for graffiti, and look at him now!

You might want to roll down your car window or choose a seat next to a window overlooking the city of Metro Manila when you’re on your commutes because aside from the hustle and bustle of the metro, there are mural arts all over that will appease your eyes.


 Check out this mural artist from Quezon City who integrates the essence and beauty of nature and women through her art, turning gray, dull, and boring alleys into something that’s definitely eye-catchy.

If you’re into graffiti and following APOK isn’t enough since you’re hungry for more, don’t worry, we've got you. 


Check out Patrick’s Instagram as well! This artist mixes up graffiti and mural painting with one big wall as his canvas. With his art, he surely kills ‘dull’ and replaces it with vibrance in colors.

Jeffrey “Skip” Bataclan (@skip.mnl)



He does portraits and 3D abstracts not only on canvas but of course, on a public wall. One of his works is a huge mural painting of Angel Locsin’s ‘Darna’. Jeffrey, as an artist, uses a futuristic and realistic approach and utilizes spray paint as his number one medium for painting, especially on wide spaces like walls.
