street art

25 Jul

as austin becomes one of this country’s newest and fastest growing cultural hubs, it’s evident that what makes Austin special – and unique – is the amount of artistic passion and ingenuity much of its populace not only embraces, but personally possesses.

one of the things I love most about exploring this city are the many wall, street and sidewalk paintings (or chalk drawings, ceramic work, etc) that you are highly likely to stumble upon on a nice afternoon stroll, no matter what neighborhood you may choose. these art forms not only show the organic nature of austin’s art world, but give the city an old-world, nostalgic feel.

here are some of my favorites from around town…
