Don’t you just love all the street art in Richmond?
Richmond, Virginia, has taken upon itself as a city to be inclusive of many forms of art, and that has manifested in colorful, interesting murals all over the city.
These three are worth checking out next time you’re in town.
Andrew Helm Mural
This mural resembles almost a spirit-like woman and feels cool, edgy, and urban against its parking lot setting. Everything feels a bit abstract, and the colors blend together. It’s great for an outfit snap for Instagram or just on its own. Find it at 14 S. 15th Street.
