Luis Angulo and Mike Johnston are doing their part to keep Austin beautiful. These artists are two of dozens who have painted murals all over town.
Luis, a native of Venezuela, has been in the states since he was 11 years old and enjoys painting images that mean something to him. He says Austin is a great city for this kind of expression because the city has a lot of people and businesses that are willing to give artists like him the opportunity to express themselves.
Johnston agrees. He left his teaching job three years ago to focus on his artwork. Johnston says that art is a job but he loves to see the reaction people have to his art.
You can find their work all around town along with many other murals that make Austin truly authentic.
