Alligator Mural, Atlanta, GA: This upside-down alligator was painted by Belgian street artist ROA as part of Atlanta’s 2011 Living Walls conference.
ROA has used black, white, and gray spray paint to depict different animals in street art festivals all over the world, and in each city he chooses an animal that is indigenous to the area.
His Atlanta alligator continues to be a recommended tourist stop even three years after its creation. 209 Mitchell Street.

Preservons la Creation Houston, TX: Last June, muralist Sebastien Boileau unveiled Preservons la Creation, the largest mural in Houston’s street art history.
He said that his mural was inspired by the work in the Sistene Chapel that has survived more than 5,000 years.
As a street artist, much of Boileau’s previous work has been removed or painted over, and with his newest project he wanted to create something that would be around for generations to enjoy. 2800 San Jacint.
