Oh, how I do love art! The colors, techniques and styles. I’m not going to lie, I have trouble drawing a stick figure! I think that’s what makes me appreciate art more. City splitting Central Avenue in Saint Petersburg offers such a vast array of diversity from east to west or vice versa. Today I want to share the Urban Murals around the area that are sometimes visible and others that are slightly elusive. It’s a diverse, charming and artsy urban community that combines both old and new. It makes up the Grand Central District, which encompasses the 300 – 700 blocks of Central Avenue. Restaurants, pubs, art galleries & studios, boutiques, cafes, guitar and record shops line the street while Murals color random large walls expressing art however you would like to personally interpret it.
The weather was perfect! Sunny, but a little overcast. It made the walking a little bit more enjoyable. With my camera around my neck, I walked and checked out some of the outside artwork displayed around the Grand Central District. The Murals are located within walking distance of each other. Each mural is uniquely painted and displayed by different artists around the area and beyound. Since the artwork is not all shown in the same area, I had to park in several parking spaces to be able to capture some of my favorite.
Below are 10 Urban Murals to see around Central Avenue!
