UP Art Studio has been working in Houston to help develop civic pride through civic art. They have been enabling new opportunities for urban street artists to come together at special galleries, big murals, and their latest project, Houston Mini Murals. They share their thoughts on street art, how it seeds culture, and why if you want the big murals, you need to also support the emerging street artists.
UP Art Studio is a Houston-based organization that facilitates art projects for urban and contemporary artists and communities, locally and worldwide. UP Art Studio specializes in mural and art commissions, public art projects, gallery art shows, photography, design, event planning, and artist collaborations. UP Art Studio is currently working on several public art initiatives in Houston, including a Mural and Public Arts program to bring more public art to the city of Houston and beyond, and Mini Murals (minimurals.org), a civic art project where traffic signal control cabinets are being transformed into works of art. UP Art Studio is run by a husband and wife team, Noah & Elia Quiles. www.upartstudio.org
