You need to talk with Nelda H. who is a member on this site.

She had a beautiful one painted on her wall.

or http://www.marianopetitart.com/

Apparently he and his girlfriend are artists.

Valente is the artist that painted the cone on the corner of Melgar & Salas (Viva Mexico ) He also did a very large mural outdoors on a wall just south of the main square on 5th. If his work is appealing to you his phone # is near his signature of both murals. Jerry at the coral reef in across from the Corpus Christi church recommended his work to me. His work is beautiful & affordable. There are more examples of his work at the coral reef inn too.

http://www.facebook.com/home.php#!/solerboquera Javier Soler. The pirate in the pic was commissioned by us when we first moved here.

Gallo has a gallery on 20th ave around 4-6, but I am not sure about the direction. He is well known.

Carlos.......Carey might know. He is all over town.

The dude who did Viva Mexico is really good.

I highly recommend Mariano. Does impressive work and he and his girlfriend are super nice. He communicates wonderfully, speaks great english and is very affordable. Communication is high on my list and he is very good at it via email, texts & phone. He started when he said he was going to start and was pretty much right on schedule thorough the whole project, sending me photos of their progress as they went along. They work very well by themselves (which is great and no need for constant monitoring) and I could just let them do their thing. They are very good workers and very, very nice to deal with. It was a great experience and I ended up with new friends in the process. :-)

My company name is Blue Dahlia so I wanted something fun and colorful for the wall of my store. Since I am located right next door to a day care center I wanted it a little whimsical, as well. It was a real pleasure dealing with them and I am very happy with the outcome!

See for yourself. :)


The mural - this room has a very high ceiling. That piece of furniture is about 7 feet tall.

I appreciate seeing their work and, in fact, due to an earlier reference from cvchief, will be seeing him today at noon. And, that mural is quite colorful, fun, and I especially like the frog.......I really enjoy whimsy too. Thanks for the pics and reference and I will mention to him how highly recommended he was by customers/friends. :D
