Internationally known artist Elio Mercado is hard at work because he is dedicating a mural to tenant Rudy Daniels at Methodist Towers.
“Got a bunch of images from people that actually live in the building and once I saw Rudy’s photo he looked pretty inspiring,” said Mercado. The mural replicates Daniels signature glasses. Mercado said Daniels who is blind is known to be a happy guy.
Daniels feels overjoyed by this gesture. “I’m a movie star or something,” said Daniels. Mercado said the goal is to uplift the community. “It makes people really happy,” he said.
The mural will be completed in a week. When it’s completed the mural will replicate an oil painting. Mercado has been painting murals for 11 years.
