From the “I Love You So Much” mural to the “You’re My Butter Half” artwork and hundreds of paintings in between, our city is wrapped in a colorful layer of street art.
So how does it compare to other urban canvases?
Bombing Science, a website devoted to all things graffiti, recently posted a list of the 99 best destinations for graffiti and street art, based on how many people in each location used the hashtag #graffiti on Instagram.
Not surprisingly, New York City, London and Paris took the top three spots. But Austin made a respectable showing, coming in at number 25 worldwide. And the best way to see our art is via bicycle.
The only American cities besides New York that ranked higher were Los Angeles (6), Miami (10), San Francisco (14), and Chicago (21). Austin topped the only other Texas cities to make the list, too – Dallas (62) and Houston (43).
