20 Incredible Murals I Discovered This Year

This post may be a little unconventional for an “end of the year” recap. But since finding beautiful murals and street art to photograph in various cities has become one of my most time consuming hobbies, I thought I’d share the “best of” 2020.

Not only is finding and photographing murals a unique way to explore a city, you can learn a lot about various places and communities.

And, the art is just breath taking.

This hobby of mine didn’t start in 2020–but it definitely took off this year in terms of the sheer quantity of murals I discovered as I looked for socially distanced ways to get out of the house, pursue my interest in photography, and explore new cities as well as see a different side of cities I’ve already come to know well.

So here are 20 of my favorite murals I captured in 2020.
