Ce que vous allez faire
“What was once an unrecognized art form, may be considered the orgasm of art today.” - GONZO247, famed Houston artist Discover the Bayou City with a fresh eye and cultivate a new relationship with urban Graffiti! We’ll meet at a little-known cafe frequented by locals, allow the diverse guests to arrive, and spend a couple of brief minutes to review the plan for our incredible time together! Then we walk around some hidden graffiti zones to see some of the most astounding murals in the city, a wonderful combo of lighthearted cartoons, political statements, and truly fascinating realism in portraits and animal paintings. We'll talk about some of the key Houston artists on the scene like Wiley and Gonzo247, the development of Houston graffiti from counterculture to accepted public artwork, and give you insight on the Houston Mural Festival that comes once a year and is coming soon! Snap epic photos of your favorite pieces to show off to your friends and family on social media or in your home! I’m also thrilled to take photos for you in front of some of the awesome planned mural spots like the wings of Houston! Remember: "Graffiti was the only art form created by kids for kids"
Simon & George
Hi, I'm George! I am a dual-citizen of France and Greece but have lived in Houston with my Texan wife for the last seven years. I operated THE top-rated tour company on TripAdvisor in Athens for over a decade. I practiced graffiti in various homes across the globe including Athens and Paris, but now I prefer to share my passion with others and just do the occasional art of my own :) I love my Houston home, and the Graffiti counterculture that exists here rivals that of LA, Austin, and others – let me give you a taste of it!
Ce qui est inclus
We will meet at a hole-in-the-wall cafe in EaDo, then I will show you my favorite hidden graffiti alleyways, huge multi-story murals and small too! Everything depends on timing, so depending how we do, maybe we can even finish up at a local craft brewery or a tea house to cool off. Finally, if the timing works out, to meet some of the artists behind some of the work.
