Best murals in San Francisco
Bird watchers, head over to the corner of Leavenworth just before Geary. This is the home of San Francisco’s oversized angry peacock; a work of art with giant green feathers and a red-eye glaring from a brilliant blue head by artist Satyr.
On the corner of 17th Avenue and Taraval in the Sunset is a breathtaking mural under the Parkside Cleaners sign depicting large yellow honeycombs against of sea of blue sky.
1301 Haight Street is home to several, colorful pixelated-looking frogs. Known as Bosque de los Alebrijes, which translates to “forest of fantastical creations,” the frog mural was created by artist Jet Martinez, who was inspired by the alebrijes of Oaxaca, Mexico.
Down in the lower Haight on Steiner Street is an intricate mural of two delicate-looking ladies in dark masks, teal wigs and yellow clothing. The piece is filled with little details, like the girls’ red nails and lips, and you’ll need a bit of time to take it all in. The piece was created by Barcelona-based Miss Van and Brazilian Ciro Schu in 2013.
