Tulsa Street Art

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?

    • I think I agree with you, but I’m pretty uneducated when it comes to art. I think I’ll let “the eye of the beholder” decide what’s good or not.

  1. I think it’s fun! What you’ve shown here is pretty inoffensive, even if we may not particularly care for all the styles. It gives the area character, moreso than a lot of graffiti which makes it appear that an area is not cared for.

    • For me, I like most of it as long as it’s not being too pushy or offensive in its message, and not to psychedelic (as in drug induced) 🙂
