Pilllar Forum Cafe Mural

This mural was created by artists Biafra and Wundr, who have been doing street art together for more than a decade. This piece is entirely spray painted and sprawls across the entire south side of the building. It has quickly become an iconic image of Central Avenue and Northeast Minneapolis overall.

Eastside Food Co-op Mural

This 55 foot long mural was created by the Minneapolis artist collectives Creatives after Curfew and Four Story Collective. The Eastside Cooperative members and staff also had significant input into the mural design. It is the largest of Northeast’s new murals.

Central Ave Liquors

Central Avenue Liquors is an independent, locally owned business, managed by a husband and wife team from Northeast Minneapolis. They worked with The Ging Beard Design Co to design a typographic mural for their store which incorporates artist Jon King’s unique skill and style.

Momo Sushi

Artist Philipo Dyauli was commissioned for the mural on Momo Sushi restaurant, and the piece encompasses his bold, unique artistic style perfectly. It is arguably one of the most eye-catching murals of Central Avenue, with vivid contrasting colors sprawling across the building’s north side.

Recovery Bike Shop

The Mural on the Recovery Bike Shop comes from the mind of shop owners Seth and Elizabeth. It includes the Northeast Minneapolis shield, a revamp of the old Minneapolis Street Railway Company trolley taken from the days when Minneapolis was filled with streetcar tracks. It was said that no Minneapolis resident was ever more than 400 yards from a trolley stop. The bees, butterflies, and ants are wildlife native to Minneapolis and part of the ecosystem on the shop’s green roof. 

Football Pizza

Artist Victor Yapez creatively incorporated a multitude of elements significant to the staff at Football Pizza in his bright and colorful mural on the north side of the building . It is a unique, mosaic-like piece that you can’t miss as you drive south on Central Avenue, just a few blocks before the murals at Pilllar Forum and former Half Fancy.

Half-Fancy

(Formerly) Half Fancy

Artist Gustavo Lira Garcia was given almost complete free range to create whatever he wanted, and this mural was the result. The flamingo may have been inspired by the Half Fancy logo, but there is much more to this majestic mural that sprawls across the north side of this currently vacant building.
