THE MURALS THREAD

What murals do you see on your two wheeled travels, or know about? Of course, many of us use murals as backdrops for our bike pix. It’d be nice to see em all in one place.

GRAFFITI IS VANDALISM NOT A MURAL, SO PLEASE DON’T POST IT HERE. MAKE A DIFFERENT THREAD FOR IT, THANKS.

Here’s a few to start off with, on this Labor Day 2020

The Carmichael Wall... This is a great mural with numerous different environments.

Sadly, this mural depicting World War One aircraft, I shot my Fly Boy in front of is no longer.

The face by the seatpost is an illusion, I never saw it before taking this pic, nor since. Too cool...https://bmxmuseum.com/image/11-specialized-flyboy-sr-71-blackbird589a3892ee_lg.jpg

Re: THE MURALS THREAD

cool Thread!


"If you don't stand for something, you'll fall for anything"

Mid school started the day Mat Hoffman asked "Can someone build me a frame that won't break after a week?" and it ended when you guys started saying, "That's my brothers old bike, it's too heavy and makes my arms hurt."

“Endangered Species” was a mural I was planning to use as a background for the right build. Unfortunately it met it’s end before I could get those pics, due to the sale of the video store it was painted on the side of.

Shame on the new owners of the store. I guess they can look forward to graffiti all over their monochromatic bare white wall.

No matter what they intend to use that place for, why would you ever paint over such a brilliant mural. You said it correct, absolutely shame on them, they deserve to fail for that act alone....sad

Re: THE MURALS THREAD

Here's a few my buddies and I did in the 90's..one was for the Denver Nuggets playoff  game against the Spurs and the other was for the Colorado Avalanches inaugural game against the Detroit redwings..we had to keep it simple so everyday people could read it..this was in the front of Mcnichols arena which is tore down now..

Wow, that's a shame that work of art was painted over. Why wouldn't you leave that on your building? That's a great conversation starter and makes people look at your store instantly. For shame.

Re: THE MURALS THREAD

Not exactly what the thread is, but still cool. I took my son hiking one day with the intention of making it up to a small cave I had seen the previous day while mountain biking. When we got to the cave and looked across we saw a narrow slot canyon with that lion looking back at us. The pics show what we found when we went to investigate.
