A recent visit to St. Petersburg, Florida- an upbeat peninsula overlooking Tampa Bay, Florida- left me awestruck at the beauty (and trendiness) that murals can provide when they flood a city with color. St. Pete is known for its views of the bay, nearby white sand beaches, and craft breweries, but its murals should not be ignored. And they really are impossible to ignore. I was completely enamored at how a shifty parking lot can be transformed with paint brush and a large dose of creativity, and how a city can support artists from all over the world in their crafty pursuits. Here is a collection of my favorites, all inspired by wildlife in some form or another. Well done, St. Pete; I can’t wait to see what your artists come up with next year.
