Throughout the world there are many street art/wall mural displays which have been founded by their local artist community and even commissioned by the cities they reside in. These areas are often listed and promoted as tourist sites and the works are absolutely astonishing. To me it’s hard enough to try and draw something on a regular sized sheet of paper but to take that and transform it into a work of art that is on the side of a two story building? Major talent and dedication!
Here are two areas that I’ve been to and their amazing wall mural trails: Murals of Phoenix and Murals in Oceanside. Unfortunately I wasn’t able to stop and take any photos of the ones in Phoenix but hope to when I return and there is a fantastic trail in Glasgow, Scotland that I missed by taking a different motorway on our road trip.
If you love art but maybe art museums aren’t your thing, then try checking out the street art in your city or a city you visit. There is some amazing talent out there in the world and to see it on such a large scale is pretty fantastic! Does your city have a wall mural trail or display or have you visited an area with one that you thought was very good? Please share it with us in the comments below.
