Stunning Murals Perfect For Selfies In South Central El Paso
El Paso has been stepping up its art game the past few years with plenty of gorgeous new outdoor murals around town. As you walk around downtown El Paso, you'll see how ordinary electrical boxes have been turned into works of art by local artists Christin Apodaca and Patrick Galbadon, and buildings have massive works of art painted on the sides.
As you travel through the city, we're seeing more and more local artists showing off their unique styles and the community is loving it. Local murals have now become hotspots for people to find and take pictures in front of, like local artist Tino Ortega's hyper-realistic balloon art seen in various spots around El Paso. Now more local artists are putting their personal touches on local businesses through their work and residents are loving it.
Del Norte Courts Motel is located in south-central El Paso at 4015 Alameda Avenue and the business has various artists creating colorful designs to decorate their buildings. Facebook user Marcos Rey posted the photos online to show support for the colorful life being brought into the area:
Have you noticed all the great murals being painted by local artists at the Del Norte Motel on Alameda Street? It looks very lively now and I was informed that a small cafe is in the plans in the near future. They are even having an Art Market happening soon! Art is Life!
Local artists Adrian Wolf and Josh Perez both worked on pieces for the motel and had their work documented by poweratthepass. You can see the video below.
Check out some of the photos below of the art created by local artists and you can follow them on Instagram at walkinsol, Adrian Wolf, Josh Perez, and more.
It's exciting to see so many new artists getting exposure in the city and to see so many businesses embracing this trend. Hopefully, we will see more murals going up in other parts of the city too.
El Paso has some of the most talented, and creative minds who need to keep sharing their gifts with the Borderland. I can't wait to see what other colorful creations go up in the city next.
