South 1st Street Murals

Here are some new and some new-to-me murals seen this week on South 1st Street in San Jose. I always appreciate the colorful creativity of the artists’ work and am often surprised by the imagery.

When I was here last winter the site at 791 South 1st Street was a car dealership and the building that now houses Idol Karaoke, which backs on to the same lot, was a hairdressing salon. These walls are now much more colorful and interesting than they used to be!

I have always liked the mural at the California Car Wash but I think this is the first time I have taken a picture of it. The waves, boats, and seagulls seem very appropriate for a water-related business.

  1. I love your discoveries and I feel more positive (which is difficult currently in SJ) about the future of downtown as I see it through your lens! Thank you.
