Mural on flood wall, 2023.

Mile-Long Graffiti Wall

This wall can be easily be viewed from your car as a drive by. It is in a desolate depressed area. But some great true street art.

Mile-Long Graffiti Wall

This is a cool spot in STL during the day. Even a little sketchy during the day, but hey, it's St. Louis. Don't go alone, as it's pretty remote right next to the river and railroad tracks. The best time to see it is right after the wall competition on Labor Day weekend. It gets painted over and on constantly until the next competition, so a lot of the best art is defaced. Still fun to drive from one end to the other, great photo ops.

River wall.

Mile Long Graffiti Wall

This wall along the riverfront of the Mississippi River (down by the Arch) is incredible. Beautiful art is painted along the entire one-plus mile stretch of wall. The art is always being added to/changed, so I make it a point to visit each time I'm in St. Louis.
