Living in Houston, we all need to escape the traffic and grind sometimes. The everyday commute can quickly become mundane, and the landscape uninspiring. Without any ocean or mountains nearby, and just a flat, suburban expanse as far as you can see, with strip malls scattered throughout, Houstonians yearn for something out of the ordinary.
The cabinet mini-murals project is such a great idea, using a necessary urban eyesore as a 3-dimensional canvas for painting. A new artistic vision that can transport people to another place, or change their mood in an instant. With just a little pop of color and imagination, a bland box can become a catalyst for positivity.
