I Heart Street Art : San Francisco

8.31.2011


I'm baaack! LoL.. I've been away from the blog for some weeks now so have lots to share. First thing is the sensational street art I came across in the Mission district of San Francisco. As a whole, I wasn't impressed with the city in the least, but these murals blew me away. They were so detailed and beautiful and showcased real local talent. The neighborhood itself is known for its ethnic culture, with taquerias, bakeries, and shops lining the streets.. But of course, the most 'amusing' part was when I asked a dude to take a photo of me and after much ado stands in front of the mural thinking I was asking for a photo of him.. hahaha! So I went along with it and here he is, little white cup and all, lol.

Amazing art work! I found some great work while in LA and all over Italy. Have you seen the film Bomb It! It shows amazing work all over the world and the various differences between cultures. It also gets into the pros and cons that belong to the graffiti world. Very insightful!

LoL @ the guy.

I've always wanted to go to San Fran for the art.. and of course to see the Golden gate Bridge. What part of the city did you NOT like? (I'm curious as it may sway my reasons for wanting to go) hehe.

Gorgeous as always!!

A man who leaves home to mend himself and others is a philosopher; but he who goes from country to country, guided by the blind impulse of curiosity, is a vagabond.
