Mural Alley Hillcrest

Hillcrest San Diego

During my walk today through Hillcrest I stumbled upon what may be considered “Mural Alley”. I tried to research if this location is actually called “Mural Alley” or not. “Mural Alley” is actually painted on the wall so…? The alley in Hillcrest is right next to West Village Pizzeria located at 435 University Avenue, San Diego, CA 92103. These photos and the afternoon light don’t do justice to how amazing these murals are in person. Next time you’re walking in Hillcrest, take a look.

I tried looking up information about the mural artists online, and this is what I found.

“Son, Mommy Loves You” mural painted by artist Maxx Moses. More information about Maxx and this mural can be found on his website: He dedicated this mural to his late mother Marion Hopkins.
Gloria Muriel is the artist for this Blue Tiger mural. I’m not certain if this is called Blue Tiger or Glow or perhaps another name. More of Gloria’s artwork can be found on her website and instagram page:
