About Me

The Street Art of San Francisco

There has always been a blurred line in graffiti, between vandalism and art. Street art in San Francisco is well recognized - some are commissioned, some are used as an advertising medium, and some are actively protected and curated. They have had books published about them, some of the artists are very well known; while others are in decay due to the elements. Street art can be found across the city, but is especially prominent in the Mission District. The photos below are a selection across the city; across my stay, and some only reflect a part of the murals as they were simply too large to photograph.
