Atlanta wears its street art like a brilliant, colorful badge of honor.  In some neighborhoods, one would be hard-pressed to find a wall that hasn’t already been commandeered by one of many notable artists.

Atlanta Street Art Map, created by a man aptly-named Art Rudick, is a website that documents as much of the city's street art as possible. The retired engineer became interested in the medium during a walking tour of Bushwick in New York and now maintains the site as a hobby, the website says.

The maps are broken down into neighborhoods with high concentrations of art: Cabbagetown and Reynoldstown; East Atlanta; Little Five Points; Grant Park area; Inman Park; Midtown and the Old Fourth Ward. The first three areas in this list have art located so closely together that Rudick includes instructions for self-guided walking tours.

Users can also view art in "other neighborhoods" or by "all locations" with artists listed alphabetically. Some of the well-known artists with listed works include Ann Marie Manker, Catlanta (Rory Hawkins), Fabian Williams, Kyle "BlackCatTips" Brooks, Peter Ferrari, Rising Red Lotus (Brandon Sadler), Sam Parker, Shaun Thurston, sQuishiepuss (Ray Geier) and Yoyo Ferro.

An archive section shows past works of art that no longer exist, such as Chris Veal's popular "Honey, Now We're Urban" piece and a home painted by Greg Mike.
