When Todd Romero and his two young sons ride through their East End neighborhood on the way to school or soccer practice, they make a game of picking their favorite mini-murals — the popular artworks painted on traffic control signal boxes across the city.

Romero, a University of Houston history professor, appreciates the lessons mini-murals can offer about significant characters from the area’s past, including Staff Sgt. Macario Garcia, the first Mexican immigrant to receive the U.S. Medal of Honor; and Mason Park founder John P. Mason.

Eight-year-old Alec and 5-year-old Elias, however, love anything colorful and fun. Their hands-on favorite mini-mural depicts the cartoon character Speedy Gonzales, who is the mascot of “Los Bomberos de Houston,” the firemen of Station 20 on Navigation.

Because that one has Spanish language on one side and English on the other, Romero concedes, “It does a nice job of encapsulating the neighborhood.”

As happens with any public art, however, the mini-murals also have detractors.

Willie Nelson art in Dallas, by Dan Colcer

DALLAS, Texas (KXAN) — Growing up in Communist-controlled Romania in the 1980s, Dan Colcer, was only exposed to only limited amounts of music and entertainment, but he vividly remembers one Texan that left an indelible mark on his life: Willie Nelson.

“He had long hair and blue jeans, and it was like ‘ka-boom,’” Colcer told KXAS in Dallas. “If you were like that over in Romania you’d be getting in big trouble.”

Three decades later, Colcer is an artist living in Dallas. He is now painting what he deemed a “symbol of freedom” onto a wall at the northwest corner of Preston Road and Royal Lane in Dallas.

“It’s just the way Willie speaks to everybody,” Colcer said. “It’s hard not to like him.” Colcer’s mural, which was commissioned by the property owner, is vibrant and colorful, just like Willie himself.

Tucked behind stores at the northwest corner of Preston Road and Royal Lane in Dallas, you’ll find an unexpected mural with an unexpected story.  For the last few weeks artist Dan Colcer has been battling the rain and the heat to complete the mural commissioned by the property owner.

Colcer grew up in the 1980s in Communist-controlled Romania.  “We, over there, in that moment, weren’t tolerant — not even with ourselves,” Colcer said. “It was hard for any form of culture to get in.”

Colcer was exposed to only limited amounts of music and entertainment, but he vividly remembers the first time he saw a familiar Texan flash on the TV screen.

“He had long hair and blue jeans, and it was like ‘ka-boom,'” Colcer said. “If you were like that over in Romania you’d be getting in big trouble.”

That Texan was Willie Nelson.

“He was pretty much a symbol of freedom for me in that moment,” Colcer said.

Three decades later, Colcer is now painting that early inspiration across a brick canvas. A huge profile of Willie Nelson covers the wall behind the nearby post office.

“It’s just the way Willie speaks to everybody,” Colcer said. “It’s hard not to like him.”

After immigrating to the United States in 2006, Colcer married a native Texan and fellow artist. The two make a living off their artwork and are now raising an 8-month-old son.

“No matter where you come from if you’re ambitious, you can achieve,” Colcer said.

He’s now hoping his art might one day open someone else’s eyes to become whoever they want to be — just like him and Willie.
