The Dawn Condominiums and Grafitti on Galveston Beach Seawall Boulevard
I’ve always been attracted to the colors that blossom throughout coastal towns. The beach homes, condos and storefronts are dripping in quintessentially themes of turquoise, bright tropical shades of peaches and limes and sprinkled with citrus cheer!
While most graffiti may tell a mecca story or detail a street-wise depiction of life in unusual comic or outcry mural form, the photo I took here shows a more informational quest to teach you the safety in watching the seafood’s destination from which you eat. Hence, a Saving Wildlife styled mural and recommending to download the Seafood Watch App. Their goal is to make you aware of sealife animals that are caught in fishing nets.
A Texas local artist, Mario Enrique Figueroa, Jr. (also known as GONZO247) has been a recipient of several Awards where he painted five murals to highlight the area’s wildlife and the threats and conservation work around them. An action focus for beach-goers to take in saving wildlife is painted throughout each of his murals.
This mural can be found along the Seawall Boulevard between 69th Street and 73rd Street where the The Dawn Condominiums creates a colorful backdrop.
