My love for street art began in Europe. My all time favorite street art (mostly because it features Star Wars references) comes out of Poland – specifically Szczecin and Krakow. Berlin’s street art isn’t so bad either!
So whenever and wherever I travel, I love nothing more than walking through a city photographing street art. It’s an interesting way to get to know the city you’re visiting.
I spent last weekend hanging out in San Francisco and was delighted to take these Instagram street art pictures in North Beach, the Mission and Dogpatch neighbourhoods.
This my friends, is an instance of non other than Banksy himself! Yep, yep, yep.
There are books in the air and everywhere. Love the musical themed mural in the background as well.
This can be found along a wall in Jack Kerouac Alley.
A Beat writer quote and also, very true.
The Mission District is home to some of San Francisco’s very best street art.
One might say I found my Personal Jesus in the Mission.
So while this is not typical street art like stencils, stickers or spray painted images, I couldn’t help but love these sidewalk fixtures. So disturbing yet really freaking cool!
Thought these dog paw prints were a cute touch in San Francisco’s lesser explored but hip and cool Dogpatch neighbourhood.
I call this post “take one” because believe or not, I have EVEN MORE photos of San Francisco street art to show you. Stay turned for my next post – I know you just can’t wait!
