The Mission District in San Francisco is one of my favourite neighbourhoods. The many murals painted on walls, fences and garages by Latino artists beginning in the 1970’s bring street art and self-expression to life here. A stroll down Balmy Alley reveals beautifully colourful works that make statements about gentrification, resistance, the AIDS epidemic, the environment, colonialism and much more. Below are a few of my favourites, taken April 2014.
