Wouldn't it be great if all cities had a massive mural project like this? Visit Richmond, Virginia within the next five years to witness a huge undertaking. The Richmond Mural Project brings together some of the best street artists from around the world to create over 100 murals within the next five years. In 2012, twenty-three murals were created by artists like Aryz from Spain and ROA from Belgium and, this year, another 20 murals are being added throughout the city. Soon all 20 will be completed, bringing the final number to 43. (Only 57 to go!)

Hands-down the most stunning piece has got to be the one above by Etam Cru of a beautiful blue-haired woman sensually soaking in a jar of strawberry jam. Overlooking a 7-11 parking lot, it's just one of several examples of how art can truly beautify the streets!

Now, from the 2013 Richmond Mural Project, here are 12 of our favorites.

  • This weekend I'm actually going to ride around RVA and oogle at all of these! It's always an amazing experience to have your city featured for something as positive and inspiring as this. <3
