10 Favorite Street Art Sightings in Phoenix
Street art is (thankfully) on the rise in Phoenix. In the past few years, we've seen hearts pasted, mural projects started, huge dripping landscapes painted, and stencils galore mark the sidewalks and corners of the city.
There's a beauty in artwork that's painted, pasted, stenciled onto the streets -- it's a clear message of no hesitation, no regret, and a passion for creating accessible artwork for public view.
While some of our favorite pieces have faded and others have been destroyed, there are still plenty of examples of local artists creating work on the streets. Here are a few of our favorites:
10. Angela Cazel Jahn's Couple on Gallery SuHu
Angela Cazel Jahn's no stranger to painting on the streets. For the past devade, the local artist has participated in community murals with local high schools and organizations, but one of our favorite public works is the mural outside of Su Humphrey's Gallery SuHu on Third Street in downtown Phoenix.
Her characters change from time to time -- we loved the woman in the red-striped socks painted early last year, and her transformation into the man currently standing down next to his television.
