Our love for science fiction and fantasy knows no boundaries — so it's only fitting that we cover our walls with it. Some of the coolest fan art in the universe has been painted or stenciled on walls in public spaces, as well as bedrooms.
Here are just a few of the most fantastic science fiction and fantasy-themed murals.
