Chicago has an incredible art scene and is full of beautiful murals, which is why I decided to give my Ultimate Chicago Mural Guide. The Chicago Mural Guide includes a location and some photos of the mural. There are still some murals that I have not visited myself but hopefully will in the future. Find a list of my favorite murals in Chicago here.
The Flamingo Mural is probably one of my favorite murals in Chicago. I just love the combination of turquoise and pink. It definitely makes this mural and instagrammable spot in Chicago.

I always had a thing for wings murals and finally found one in West Loop Chicago. This neighborhood is also amazing for dining out. You will not be disappointed by the restaurants there. Probably, most of my favorite restaurants are located in this neighborhood.

I really have a thing for murals with flowers on it, and Chicago does not disappoint, because we have plenty of flower murals here. This one is located in an alley, and I love it.

Speaking of Flower Murals, here is another one that is massive and lovely to photograph if you have a thing for murals and street art.

Jungle Leafs Mural
If you need some tropical vibes in Chicago, make sure to check out the Leaf Mural on the wall of the restaurant EDEN.
Spring Flowers Mural / Maison Marcel
Maison Marcel is such a lovely cafe in Chicago, and they actually have two locations, except this location has the cutest wall art ever. I love coming here in summer.

Chicago Wings Mural
Another gorgeous wings mural that you can find at the Old Orchard Center in Skokie. There is a massive wall with several murals that are all lovely. At the same time, you can also do some shopping!
Lily Flowers Mural
This lily flower mural is also part of the Old Orchard Center mural wall. As mentioned before, the wall is huge!
Guess what, Chicago even has a cupcake ATM. How cool is that?
Colorful Geometrical Mural
At Southport you can find this fun mural, that shows flowers, triangles, and squares in several colors. Such a cute find.

“The Best Things in Life are Sweet” Wall
Sweet Mandy’s Cafe is not only good because of the delicious cupcakes and cookies, but because of the interior and the gorgeous pastel colors. Make sure to check this out when in Chicago!
Address: Sweet Mandy’s Cafe on 1208 W Webster Avenue, Chicago, IL, USA
Gloves in February Mural
Also, a great spot for Valentine’s Day is this adorable wall with the quote ” I need you more than gloves in February”.
Blue Mural Chinatown
One of my favorite parks in Chicago is the Ping Tom Memorial Park. First of all, because of the amazing skyline view that you have there and second of all because of the temple and the artwork there. The park also is not too crowded and gives you lots of opportunities to wander around. Also, it is right in Chinatown, which is great if you want to visit the park and eat yummy Asian food afterward.
Address: 1700 S Wentworth Avenue, Chicago, IL, USA (Ping Tom Memorial Park)
Artists: Anna Murphy, Chester Chow, Andy Bellomo
Recently discovered this wonderful piece of art in Wicker park.
Address: 1659 W. North Ave, Chicago, IL, USA
Greetings from Chicago Mural
When visiting Chicago, make sure to check the “Greetings from Chicago” Mural and make a photo there. I have seen the same artwork in Austin as well. I loved it.
Address: 2236 N Milwaukee Avenue, Chicago, IL, USA
Artists: Victor Wing & Lisa Beggs
Black & White Stamp Mural
I love this wall that looks almost washed out already. But it always makes a good backdrop for a nice Insta shot!
Love You Mural
This is a newer piece of wall art, and I must say, I love the bright pink colors here.
Address: 1401 West Wabansia, Chicago, IL, USA
Artists: Merlot & Zach Rockstad
Moroccan Tile Fountain
Chicago has crazy winters that are very long as well. During this time, I love visiting Conservatories, such as the Garfield Conservatory. This is where you can also find this beautiful fountain that makes you feel like you are in Morocco.
Address: Garfield Conservatory 300 N Central Park Avenue, Chicago, IL, USA
Well, this is my Chicago mural guide. As soon as I discover new murals, I will update this blog post.
