East End “Loteria” Mural Adorns Navigation Esplanade
March 15, 2018 — (HOUSTON) Following the recent success of the “Turtle Soup” mural, UP Art Studio has teamed up with the Greater East End Management District (GEEMD) to create more murals that depict icons of the East End.
Completed this week, is the “East End Loteria” mural, which is a play on the popular Mexican game of chance. Along with some of the traditional icons of the game, the artist, Gelson Lemus AKA “w3r3on3”, envisioned the game using icons of the East End, such as Our Lady of Guadalupe church, and the esplanade itself. Located on the Navigation esplanade, the container houses new public restrooms.
Noah Quiles, co-founder of UP Art Studio, said, “We helped with camouflaging a very needed public restroom. Our creative partner hid the restrooms in plain sight, with a brilliant style that uses anamorphic techniques.”
