The Best Street Art to Find Around East Austin

Whether you live in Austin or you’re just here visiting, one essential (and free) thing to do is to find the incredible street art hidden throughout the city.  Of course, there are the more popular murals that most tourists flock to like the “Greetings from Austin”, the beloved Jeremiah the Innocent (AKA the frog asking “Hi, How Are You”), and the iconic “I love you so much.”

Although these might be some of the more popular pieces of art throughout the city, we can’t forget about some of the more hidden gems. After all this is Austin so the lesser known something is, the cooler. And since we are located in East Austin, I wanted to focus on some of my favorite murals this side of town. 

  1. Starting off is one of the largest murals around, just before you hit East 5th St., you’ll find this beauty to your right.

Location: Off i35 between East 4th St. and East 5th St.

 

2. “How You Doin?”

If Jeremiah the Innocent is a little too mainstream for you (or you’re just a big fan of Joey from Friends), you can find this guy in the overgrown grass by the MetroRail tracks.

Location: East 4th St. and Attayac

Keep in mind, East 6th St. also has some of the best food trailers in Austin to check out on your way!

 

 

 

3. “Shoot Rainbows Into Fascism”

6. Coffee Critters

The little creatures here also happen to be on Vintage Heart Coffee, the perfect place to stop for a little pick-me-up on your tour, (I suggest their iced coffee with lavender!)

8. Loteria Cards (In an unlikely part of town)

Mexican Folk Art

Location: Cesar Chavez and Chalmers

 

8. Blue Cat Cafe

For all the cat people out there, you’ll love our last one because what’s better than a mural of cats being abducted by aliens? Plus, one of the great things about this art, is what lies inside. Yes, unlimited play time with cats who all come from the Austin Humane Society and are up for adoption.

So, enjoy your time in the city, and don’t forget about these places next time you’re on the east side!I love you bacon
