This is a whimsical post, for the most part. This morning after church, some street art in downtown Tulsa caught my eye, so I decided to wander the area and see what other pieces of art I could find.
I don’t know if “street art” is the right term for this, but I’m referring to original art that is clearly not graffiti, gang-related, or any type of vandalism. This is the stuff that I think is decorative or purposeful – for a business perhaps.
Anyway, there’s more of this type of art around than I would have thought. These photos were all taken close to downtown Tulsa and are pretty imaginative. I won’t say that I particularly like some of these styles, but I do find it interesting. If you’re wondering about all of the “skeleton” depictions, I think these were part of a “dia de los muertos” celebration a couple of years ago.
I’ll have to keep an eye out for more as time goes by. What do you think? Does this type of art add or detract from a city’s ambiance?
