Art goes big in murals on walls of downtown St. Petersburg

The hometown of The Salvador Dalí Museum is becoming known for much more than surrealism. Street art has exploded in St. Petersburg with the work of dozens of amazing artists and muralists adorning the walls of local businesses and homes.

In 2015, the city added 17 new murals to its streets thanks to a groundbreaking new festival known as SHINE, which transformed the city’s streets into a curated, open-air museum. The burgeoning local art scene is not only attracting internationally renowned artists, but St. Pete’s large-scale murals work to beautify and revitalize a once-neglected part of town.

The SHINE mural festival plans to return again in September, according to the festival director Leon “Tes One” Bedore, but in the meantime, here’s a guide to some of the most iconic locations and artists who created them.

Huge, overwhelming paintings on buildings get our blood pumping! It’s a gust of fresh air in cities dominated by concrete, glass, and corporate ads. Some murals demand us to just stop and gaze… To let it all sink in.
