Murals in the City - Osage Alley murals

Osage Alley Murals - Welcome sign
Mijo, Tee and I were heading to Mission Pie for desserts and coffee when I spotted these murals while looking for parking. Right after we finished desserts and coffee, we did a mini walking tour of Osage Alley.

This is alley is amazing because it is dotted with murals. This is another mural heaven in the Mission District!




I don't know who painted these murals but I love them. The area of Osage Alley where in the murals are concentrated are in the two blocks between 24th and 26th Sts.   They look like they were painted by different muralists because of different designs and styles. They form an eclectic art when seen together. I love it!

These murals are north of 25th St.

The details on this one is hard to describe because the mural is very intricate not to mention it is huge. I wonder how long a mural this big is painted?
