Vancouver’s Mount Pleasant neighbourhood has a new look following last week’s second annual Vancouver Mural Festival, with more than 40 new murals painted onto the walls of the city.

The festival took place from Monday, August 7 to Saturday, August 12, and had local and visiting artists bringing new life and colour to huge, blank canvases. The festival featured live music, a flash tattoo pop-up, a street party, and panels featuring many of the painters.

Here are a few of the new murals that went up around the city, though more can be discovered by visiting all the locations on this map.

Sarah Delaney–”Findings On Main”

If you are crusing up Main Street and you see a pink glow in the distance… keep your eyes on the road, because safety first ✌🏻
