Corpus Christi (KIII NEWS) — Another breath of fresh air made its way to the streets of downtown.
Jeremy Flores unveiled his "Greetings From Corpus Christi" Mural on 114 Mesquite Street.
Flores was the face behind the beautiful sea turtle mural down the street and his latest masterpiece has drawn similar attention.
"It looks beautiful," a passerby said. "It looks amazing."
For five days Flores and his team put their blood sweat and tears into a mural that says it all.
"I really like that he got all the landmarks of Corpus," one admirer said. "I mean you got the bridge you got the seagulls, the Lexington Downtown."
Flores said he's just trying to add life to a city that's given him and others so much.
"I see what art can do for a city and what it can bring to a community so I'm real big into kind of bringing new artists out here to Corpus," Flores said.
Even in the middle of the interview yells of approval were heard nearby.
"Right now these people just passed by and they just absolutely love to feel the energy you know," Flores said.
Josh Richline, owner of the business the mural calls home, funded the project.
He and his wife recently took a trip to Chile where he was inspired by all the murals there.
"I just wanted to bring some of that color and some of that culture and that community back to Corpus Christi," Richline said.
Fans of murals said they act as a magnet to the area.
"With more murals popping up it just adds to all of that and adds to people kind of wanting to come out and look around downtown," Christina Butler said.
Through his work Flores hopes people can see Corpus Christi as a beautiful and flourishing city.
"There's talent here in Corpus and there is local people that are coming together making stuff happen for our city," Flores said.
