Hello friends! Today on the blog I wanted to share a new, but similar post to my last one! Previously I shared The 20 Most Instagrammable Places in Atlanta, but today I wanted to share 25 of The Best Wall Murals in Atlanta! These spots are some of my favorite to shoot at and offer not only a gorgeous backdrop, but some cultural enrichment too. If you’re looking for some new photo locations, OR fun places to visit while traveling to the city, this is the post for you!
1. Tribal Mural – Summerhill
Address: 39 Georgia Ave. SE, Atlanta, GA 30312
The first mural on this list is the Tribal Mural that’s in the Summerhill area! It’s one of the most stunning that I’ve seen in the city, and takes up an ENTIRE side of the building. You can’t miss it! This area has a ton of fun murals and is a must stop area on your list. My favorite thing about this mural is all of the gorgeous colors!
2. Graphic Print Mural
Address: Armour Cir NE, Atlanta, GA 30324
This mural is one I discovered while sifting through some tagged photos in Atlanta! It’s literally in a parking deck, but the roof is open so you get great lighting! When I posted it to Instagram, I used the TouchRetouch app to remove the ceramic parking blocks. It was such a quick and simple edit!
3. John Lewis Mural
Address: 99 Krog St NE, Atlanta, GA 30307
The second on my list of murals in Atlanta GA is this John Lewis mural! John Lewis is perhaps on of the most prominent leaders of the Civil Rights Movement and was also the director of the Voter Education Project. He then became a member of the U.S. House of Representatives! I love that this mural was created (within the last year too!) and it honors his memory so well.
4. Disco Ball Mural
Address: 3330 Piedmont Rd NE Atlanta, GA 30305
The Disco Ball mural is one of my FAVORITE Atlanta wall murals. When looking for this mural, the address was a little bit off. Follow this address and then it’s located on the back of the art store in this area! The ENTIRE wall is covered, but I personally loved this colorful disco ball being front and center in the shot.
5. Midtown Bowl Mural
Address: 1936 Piedmont Cir NE, Atlanta, GA 30324
This next mural has SUCH a fun pattern on the wall. It’s located at Midtown Bowl between downtown and Brookhaven. I loved it because it has multiple patterns along the building. Super fun for a Halloween shoot like the one I did below!
6. “Hey Brown Girl” Mural
Address: 333 Peters St. SW, Atlanta, GA 30313
I was so happy to discover this mural on my search! Not only are the colors straight out of my dreams, but the sentiment just makes me feel happy! So many brown women grow up not liking how they loo (oop it’s me) and this mural just serves as a reminder that YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL THE WAY YOU ARE!
7. Blue Geometric Wall Mural
Address: 969 Marietta St NW, Atlanta, GA 30318
This wall reminds me of my time interning with Disney! I love all the colorful walls you can find throughout the parks. Now I don’t even have to leave the city! This blue geometric wall is by Arden’s Garden and next to Bartaco. It has a little bench here that you can sit on and enjoy your food! I loved this cute little area.
8. Geometric Shape Mural
Address: 997 Brady Ave NW Atlanta, GA 30318
I LOVEEE this geometric wall! It is super long and the entire length of this huge building. I honestly feel like you could shoot three completely different looks here and no one would realize they were taken in the same place! Plus we love a Selkie puff dress moment.
9. Balloon Mural
Address: 985 Monroe Dr NE, Atlanta, GA 30308
This balloon mural is one of the best murals in Atlanta! It has been around the city for a while now and I absolutely love how fun it is. This guy is located below the Monroe Dr bridge and there are a few others along the way! A lot of the buildings in this area have murals on the backs of the buildings.
10. Blue Flower Murals – Beltline
Address: 716 Ponce De Leon Pl NE, Atlanta, GA
This blue flowers mural creates such a lovely photo! It’s on the back wall of a chic little coffee shop so you can grab a picture and a sip at the same time! It’s also right there next to Ponce City Market so you can shoot some cute photos and then head over there for lunch or a sweet treat!
11. Planned Parenthood Mural
Address: 440 Moreland Ave SE Atlanta, GA 30316
Are these polka dots or birth control? You decide haha. When I purchased this pink tweed set from Cider, I KNEW this was the mural to shoot it with!
12. YikYak Mural
Address: 700 Lake Ave, NE Atlanta, GA 30307
YikYak was the most toxic app I have ever had. If you were in college from 2014-2016, then you 100% know what I mean LOL. That said, I have always adored their cute little yak logo! He’s adorable and this mural is no exception. This one is also right near Krog Street and is only about a block away from the John Lewis mural.
13. Elizabeth Street Mural
Address: 290 Elizabeth St NE, Atlanta, GA 30307
This is one of my atlanta murals that I didn’t intend to add originally! I planned to shoot at Bread & Butterfly which is a chic little restaurant on the same street. Sadly I didn’t plan ahead and it was POPPIN’ from the time it opened! That said, I was so happy to find this gem as well. It has a bunch of mushrooms all over it!
14. MARTA Ethereal Garden Mural
Address: 1043 Ponce de Leon Ave NE Atlanta, GA 30306
15. The “Atlanta” Mural – Atlanta Humane Society
Address: 981 Howell Mill Rd NW, Atlanta, GA 30318
When it comes to wall murals in Atlanta, this one is one of the most iconic! It’s the Atlanta mural on the side of the Humane Society wall (you can even hear the little pooches barking). I opted for a close up of it because I love just shortening it to ATL since that’s what most people here refer to Atlanta as.
16. Georgia Tech Rainbow Stairs
Address: 266 Ferst Dr NW Atlanta, GA 30332
Okay not TECHNICALLY a mural, but it’s still really fun. I took full body photos as well as these half up shots and they all turned out SO CUTE! If you want a colorful backdrop, sit on the stairs or stand in front of them. That will give you the blurred, colorful effect!
17. Flower Mural – Little Tart Bake Shop
Address: 68 Georgia Ave SE, Atlanta, GA 30312
On a list of the best wall murals, this one is number one in my book! I ADORE flowers and the colors in this one are absolutely everything. If you’re a lover of flowers + coffee, then shoot here! This mural is on the side of Little Tart Bakeshop which is also located in the Summerhill area of Atlanta.
18. Rainbow Brushstroke Mural
Address: 1 Krog Street NE Atlanta, GA 30307
This mural and the “Kiss Me Here” mural are almost right next to each other! This is a small sliver of wall, but I ended up using the TouchRetouch app to edit it to be larger. I have a tutorial on my Instagram which you can see (here)! I truly love the colors in this and wanted it to be larger for my feed.
19. Immigrants Mural
Address: 3375 Buford Hwy NE #1170, Atlanta, GA 30329
Last on my list of murals in Atlanta is one that is only about 2 miles from me! It’s casually on the side of a building near this cozy little shopping center and I could not adore it more. It features multiple immigrants, a little immigrant family, and people of various ethnicities living in harmony!
20. Kiss Me Here Mural
Address: 1 Krog Street NE Atlanta, GA 30307
This “Kiss Me Here” mural is seriously so cute. I saw this and KNEW I wanted to do a couples shoot here. It’s a great option for engagement photos, anniversary photos, or just photos that you want with your partner. I took some here for a Reel campaign I was doing, and then shared this one for my boyfriend’s birthday! The way to get here is a little weird and your GPS might panic, but just drive around until you find the row of murals. It’s not too hard to locate!
21. Multi-colored Shape Mural
Address: 587 Virginia Ave NE Atlanta, GA 30306
I was so excited for this new mural! It’s painted under an entire bridge, but it extends out of the sides a bit too. I LOVED how bold the shapes and colors were for this one and knew I wanted to shoot here. If you park closest to the beltline near the Midtown Butcher Shop, it’s a quick little walk!
22. Colorful Faces Mural
Address: 930 Mauldin St SE Atlanta, GA 30316
This post is one of my TOP posts of 2021. My followers absolutely adored this look + this mural! The colors are just so cute, fun, and bright which I love. My favorite thing is that you can line yourself up with the center and it gives this cool half and half effect! There’s an empty lot/parking lot right past (or right before) the bridge depending on which side you come up on.
23. Large Pink Flower Mural
Address: 1043 Ponce de Leon Ave NE Atlanta, GA 30306
This large flower mural is so cute! It’s on the side wall of the Southern Belle restaurant near Ponce City Market. Stop by Buffalo Exchange, then head right down the side street for some food and a gorgeous view! I loved how bright and fun this one was.
24. Multicultural Swirl Mural
Address: 215 Pryor St SE Atlanta, GA 30303
This is one of my favorite murals. It’s located in a random alleyway, but the colors are still bright and standout! The mint in my outfit ended up matching SEAMLESSLY with the mint in the mural and I couldn’t have been happier about it.
25. BLM Mural
Address: 119 Randolph St SE Atlanta, GA 30312
This mural gives you culture and COLOR! I think it’s so cute how this wall is segmented with mini murals among the one big one. I love being outspoken on my social platforms, so this mural was the perfect combo of everything I like!
Well there you have it! Here is another Atlanta related blog post and I hope you guys enjoy. Murals make me (and my Instagram feed) really happy. I’ll probably add to this post eventually, but overall these are 25 of The Best Wall Murals in Atlanta and you need to check them out!
