Street art was once viewed as negative and a nuisance in many places. It was affiliated with gang activity and often immediately erased.

As more cities continue to grow and expand, they try to keep the authentic feel by allowing local artists to create murals around town. They can now be seen all over social media, providing some of the best photo backdrops around.

We’ve put together this list of some of the dopest murals that we’ve come across within the United States. Check them out. If you know exact locations, feel free to let us know.
