Super cool street art in City Heights!

One side of a electrical box on University Avenue at Interstate 805. This particular art resembles other examples I once photographed in National City.

Check out a whole bunch of super cool photos! All this awesome street art was encountered during a short walk in City Heights.

I began on University Avenue near I-805, walking east along the sidewalk on the south side. Then I crossed at 35th Street and headed back west down the sidewalk on University Avenue’s north side.

Enjoy!

Urban art that seems both ancient and futuristic. Strange geometric patterns in these figures appear symbolic.

I've crossed the street and am heading back west. I noticed this colorful tower to the south features references to both City Heights and Cherokee Point, a neighborhood south of University Avenue.

  1. Hey Richard, My name is Carlos and I’m one of the Co-Founders of Love City Heights and #theavenuemuralproject. I just happened to have come across your article about “Super cool street art in City Heights” and was pleasantly surprised to see one of our murals there. We actually have 7 murals within a couple blocks from the flamingo one at Tire Express. I would love to get together and show you the rest in person and share with you our goal and what our project is trying to achieve. Feel free to message me any time. Hope to hear from you soon.
    Here is a link to our promotional video which I hope you find informational.

    Also feel free to look us up on Facebook at Love City Heights.
