The popular murals my newsfeed blew up with when it first came out were the chrome-like balloons painted by Tino Ortega. A lot of friends on my social media were taking pictures with all of those murals. Then there are older murals outside of El Paso that some of you were once curious to see.

For example, in Austin, there are some murals a lot of us should be familiar with. Some of those murals include the Willie Nelson painting, or "I Love You So Much" or my personal favorite, Mr. Rogers wall.

I had been wanting to see those murals before visiting Austin, Texas for my first time ever. One of my best friends Marisa E. was my city tour guide.

Just recently learned about the bread and butter mural in Austin that was vandalized becoming the butt of people's jokes. In Austin, Texas there is a mural of bread and butter which was ruined by someone else attempting to be an artist.

A Reddit user BugInMySoup shared a picture of the now ruined bread and butter mural in Austin that caught a lot of people's attention. Now, that is something that is just cruel since I'm sure the artist took the majority of their time to paint it.

But kudos to the artist for giving props to the person who destroyed it in the first place. Reddit user Vantrilokwis is the artist who painted the original bread and butter mural and even left some helpful advice for the guilty party.
