For the 2011-2012 season artist Daniel Anguilu will transform Lawndale’s north exterior wall into a mural on view through June 2012. Anguilu’s work can be found throughout Houston, including locations in the East End and most recently on Midtown’s MHMRA building. Anguilu’s style is deeply inspired by his Mexican heritage and mostly manifests itself as large-scale murals. Anguilu uses angular and organic forms to construct animals and other shapes, often drawing from Aztec influences. Anguilu aims to take these images and reinvent them in his own style that people can begin to recognize.
Anguilu explains, “One my favorite parts of painting outdoors on buildings is the scale and the access everyone has to the art, this is not for one space and one crowd, this is for everyone to enjoy.”
