The Barry McGee Houston street mural has a strong underlying message. McGee was commissioned to paint the mural following artists Shepard Fairey and Os Gemeos. McGee worked with artist Amaze through the night to create this wall filled with words. The words are actually the names of graffiti artists of the past and present making a strong statement supporting graffiti as an art form.

The incredible Barry McGee Houston street mural speaks strongly and represents street artists as the talented community that they are.
