I live in Houston and love writing reviews of the local restaurants and stores I visit with family and friends.
Murals in the Houston Heights
The Houston Heights is a historic community near downtown Houston. An eclectic mixture of people lives there. Along with grand old Victorian houses are unique businesses, charming park spaces, and many painted murals adding to the neighborhood's color and vibe. I will show you 32 of them in this article.
1. Greetings From Houston by Daniel Anguilu
Local graffiti artist Daniel Anguilu has incorporated all kinds of iconic imagery in this mural. From an oil derrick to a rocket ship…that and more is on view. I particularly like the friendly-looking saguaro cactus plant waving a Texas flag. Saguaros do not grow in Texas, but artists get to use their imaginations and have leeway where art is concerned.
Location of this mural: 3601 White Oak Drive, Houston, Texas 77007.
2. It's All About Love
Ruben Rojas truly believes in spreading the ideas of love, gratitude, respect, forgiveness, empowerment, and more. His giant-sized murals grace city walls in many places across the U.S.A. as well as outside our beautiful country.
All one needs to do is go to his website. That is where you will see his murals’ titles to see the words he expresses in colorful paint on buildings. They include some of the following:
- Always Believe Something Wonderful is About to Happen
- You Are Beautiful!
- Begin With Gratitude
- You Belong Here
- Just Do Good
- Be Humble
- Leave Nothing But Footprints
