Austin is the capital of Texas and a young and laid back city. With a slogan Keep Austin Weird, you can already imagine how much the hipster and alternative crowds love the city. And with that, the place has several murals that reflect the artistic power of those who are here or just pass by. Thinking about it, I decided to put together this post with the coolest murals in Austin, so you can check when you are in the city.
Murals in Austin – Tau Ceti
Sprucing up a downtown corner, Austin’s tallest mural brings an impressive energy to the place. This multidimensional, gradient-colored work was named “Tau Ceti” after a star in the constellation Cetus that is similar to our own sun. According to the artist, the work refers to unity and diversity, creating a full spectrum that he believes is a suitable symbol for downtown Austin.
