So you want to dive into the world of Buffalo NY murals? You came to the right place!
Outdoor art has been popping up all over the world and dressing up street corners with bright, eye-catching colors and designs. I’ve never met a mural I didn’t like but I’m especially partial to the ones dressing up my hometown.
We have over 120 murals for your viewing pleasure all around the city and outer suburbs, even alleyways full of beautiful art walls.
Thanks in large part to our local art gallery – Albright Knox the #akpublicart initiative has also brought artists from around the world to paint large murals with a local flare, and they fit in nicely amongst the murals of our Buffalo-born artists.
There is so much Buffalo pride and history in these murals that you’ll have to take a look for yourself but here’s a few to get your mural hunt started:
