Top 5 Wall Murals in Buffalo, New York
Public art has been popping up more around Buffalo, and I couldn’t be happier. I love seeing local businesses giving artists an opportunity to have their personal work showcased. They can be found all over the city- you just need to know where to look! Here is a list of the top five spots you can get your wall mural appreciation on.
Greetings from Buffalo
461 Ellicott Street
Another staple wall mural in the city is located on Ellicott Street. The “Greetings From Buffalo” mural was conceived by Casey Milbrand and the most instagrammed wall mural in Buffalo.
1322 Hertel Avenue
On the side of Joe’s Deli on Hertel, you can find this wall mural by Bunnie Reiss. Her work is inspired by her Polish and Russian heritage, which you can see in this mural. Her art spans both sides of the building and gives a nice texture and pop of color to the area.
537 East Delavan
Any contemporary art lover should check this one out. Artist Shantell Martin completed an enormous mural when visiting through the Albright Knox Public Art Initiative. Her stream-of-consciousness drawings are what the artist is known for, and her piece on East Delavan is no different.
1221 Main Street
Every time I go by this mural it brings a smile to my face. In 2016, the Buffalo Center for Arts and Technology Summer Youth Program partnered with artist Alice Mizrachi to develop this mural on Main Street.
