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.

Willie Nelson Mural Artist: Wiley Ross

He is Rosie Troutman’s grandson.

An artist making big headlines in Austin, Texas, has some strong family ties to Buffalo. Wiley Ross, who recently finished a 60-foot-by-20-foot mural of singer Willie Nelson on the side of a building in downtown Austin, is the son of Jody (Troutman) Noennig and the grandson of Rosie and the late Herb Troutman.

Ross painted the giant mural of the beloved country and western, rock crossover icon after being approached by Adam Brewer, founder of the Heart of Texas Rockfest.

“He came to me and he’s like, ‘Dude, I’ve got this huge wall available. Let’s paint it. Let’s make it happen. Let’s do it,’” Ross said.

The building that displays Ross’ masterpiece faces the Austin Resource Center for the Homeless at the corner of 7th and Neches streets. On March 15-18, the mural was the new backdrop for the 17th annual Heart of Texas Rockfest outdoor theater.

“All the homeless cats down here really dig it. Haven’t had any problems with them at all. They’ve been real cool,” Ross said. “Then there are the people driving by and taking pictures. It’s been an overwhelmingly positive response.”

Ross said this was definitely the biggest project he’s taken on in the shortest amount of time. He spent six 13-hour days in the hot sun to complete the mural by hand.
