515 Congress

Exterior Mural

Location: Austin, TX
Client: KBS
Project Type: Exterior Mural

In partnership with building owner KBS, and Downtown Austin Alliance Foundation, Art + Artisans successfully managed the installation of a 50’ x 60’ original mural by internationally acclaimed artist Mr Doodle, known for his spontaneous style combining doodling, cartooning and graffiti.

The 515 Congress Mural features Mr Doodle’s signature “Graffiti Spaghetti” style; dense, intertwined lines that invite viewers into a whimsical world of creativity and imagination. Located at the bustling intersection of 6th Street and Congress Avenue, Mr Doodle’s work is now a well-matched contributor to the energetic landscape of downtown Austin.

“This is the kind of thing that I dream about doing. Giant walls like this, I don’t get to do often. It’s just so cool to see it come to life,” Mr. Doodle said. “I’ve really put my heart into this one. I really hope people love it.”

The project is part of the Downtown Austin Alliance Foundation’s Writing on the Walls program celebrating art, diversity and public spaces in Austin.

President and CEO of the Downtown Austin Alliance De Peart was thrilled to partner with the acclaimed street artist who brings the attention of his 6 million social media followers to Austin. “Mr. Doodle’s international recognition as a muralist will not only draw locals and tourists alike to experience art—and all our downtown has to offer—but it will also raise Austin’s reputation as a creative destination and cultural hub that prioritizes free, public art,” Peart said.
