5 | Gorilla Art
This past May, the Houston Zoo opened its much anticipated gorilla habitat but before the grand opening, you could drive around Houston and see different gorilla murals all over town. The Houston Zoo teamed up with five talented artists, each designed and painted a mural featuring gorillas. While each mural is great in its own way, do I dare say my favorite is the mural by Sebastien Boileau? This marks Sebastien’s third appearance on the list.
6 | Greetings From Houston
Like a fun oversized postcard, this Daniel Anguilu mural is a wonderful collage of all things “Houston”. You have everything from an oil derrick to a space shuttle represented in the mural. There’s even a mixtape painted… I’m guessing some Beyonce and Paul Wall? And can you spot Daniel Anguilu’s signature mosaic design scattered throughout the mural? Since this mural is located right outside a gelato shop, you can grab a yummy scoop after your photo session.
7 | You Are My Sunshine
I don’t really know much about this mural except a. it’s located on the outside wall of a kids clothing store in the Heights, and b. it’s super cute. Who doesn’t love “You Are My Sunshine”? And I bet you sang “… my only sunshine” right afterwards too, didn’t you? This sweet, simple mural would be perfect for an engagement shoot.
