According to Workamajig, Atlanta was named the best city in the US for creatives. Atlanta’s creativity is hard to deny as it is home to some of the best music festivals around, such as OneMusic Fest, Music Midtown, Shaky Knees, and the Atlanta Jazz Festival. There are a host of museums as well, such as High Museum of Art, Fernbank Museum, Chick-fil-A College Football Hall of Fame Museum, Trap Music Museum, and more.

Atlanta is even home to some dope hip-hop-based murals; we took it upon ourselves to seek out a few of them. Head below for four of the stand-out murals we found, plus their locations and artists.

1. Outkast

This outstanding Outkast mural can be found at 453 Moreland Ave NE, Atlanta, GA 30307. The black and white artwork is simply stunning, with absolutely awesome attention to detail—props to the artist, Jeks.
