A New ‘Where The Wild Things Are’ Mural on Beryl Road

Where The Wild Styles Are

Over the weekend, passing motorists on Beryl Road may have noticed a large mural on the back of a business facing Hillsborough Street. Three artists painted an incredibly large scene depicting Maurice Sendak’s characters from Where The Wild Things Are.

This isn’t the first appearance of a Where The Wild Things Are mural in Raleigh–there used to be one in the now closed Jackpot! bar. This one is much larger, and in a much more conspicuous place. It is visible from Beryl Rd, directly across from the Post Office before you get to the Waffle House.

This beautiful piece was done by Zone, Woem and Seano, with the permission of the business owner, No Regrets Tattoo.
