From 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. outside Union Station, artist Jesse de Leon will be painting an 8’x8’ mural to celebrate the Astros ALCS win.
Jesse de Leon was born and raised in Houston. His interest in art began as soon as he could pick up a pencil. During grade school his love for art blossomed into a passion. He was trusted and encouraged by his academic teachers to share his talent with his school. On many occasions Jesse was asked to create banners for school graduations and banquets. While working at a design firm, his interest in creating murals and faux finishes was born. He has since painted murals, canvases, and faux finishes for designers, businesses, and individuals across the country. His work varies from impressionism to the abstract, and he finds that the composition and use of materials have a strong influence on his creative process.
