Chicago Walls Murals Street Art

Since the launch of Style Charade in the spring of 2015, Chicago street art and additional murals from around the world have been the center of the blog’s story, photos and content. After all, one of the most frequent questions that I get is, “where is that wall?!” Therefore, I created a Chicago Street Art Guide, which includes all of my favorite murals, street art, and colored walls in the Windy City. If you like this guide, I also recommend checking out the Los Angeles, Miami and New York wall guides as well.

This list of street art is by no means conclusive. I try to include as many walls as possible, but a huge part of why I love murals and colorful walls is that they’re EVERYWHERE. Plus, they’re constantly changing and evolving. As you explore these walls, I recommend keeping your eyes open and aware of your surroundings. I truly believe that bold, beautiful hues and street art are everywhere, especially in Chicago – you just need to look for them!

As with all street art, murals, and walls, things are constantly changing, so you may arrive to something different than what has been pictured here. Furthermore, street art is constantly changing, and there’s a chance you may arrive and find it painted over or even full of graffiti. I know it can frustrating, but it happens! I’ll do my best to keep the Chicago Street Art Guide up to date for everyone.

Additionally, I try to include details on the artists, but some info simply couldn’t be found. Please contact me if you have that info – I’ll update accordingly! The artists are really the stars of street art, and I’m indebted to them for providing such beautiful backdrops for us to enjoy!

Without further ado, here is my Chicago Street Art Guide with links, addresses and info to the best street art, murals, and colored walls in Chicago! Enjoy, and be sure to check out Los Angeles Wall Guide, Miami Wall Guide and New York Guide Guide too!
