More cool art from another East Village walk!

I went on a random zigzagging walk through East Village late this afternoon and found some artwork that I don’t believe I’ve already shared, even though some of the street art is obviously years old and faded.

I walked south from Broadway down Tenth Avenue, east on F Street, and south again along Park Boulevard to Market Street, where the last photo was taken. And there’s a good reason to be excited by that last photo!

I then proceeded to the Quartyard, where I photographed a bunch of cool new murals, but those will be in the next blog post!

This mural is amazing but a couple years old now, by Gloria Muriel and Dave Persue. For some reason I've never taken a photo until today.

Another very cool (and colorful) mural by the same two artists was on the above wall years ago. See it here!

I only got a glimpse of the above mural, because a construction fence won’t let the public into a courtyard area between the big, soon-to-open downtown UC San Diego Extension building and its adjacent residential tower.

Does this mural’s style look familiar? It’s by world-renowned illustrator and muralist Rafael López! His studio is just down the street!

Once the public gets access, I’ll try to get good photos. Plus there appear to be other murals in that courtyard!

I live in downtown San Diego and love to walk around with my camera! You can follow Cool San Diego Sights via Facebook or Twitter!
