The curvilinear line quality of this mural reflects the ever-flowing waters of San Pedro Creek that have provided sustenance to the San Antonio community for centuries. Using his signature aesthetic of dynamic brush strokes, brilliant hues, and high contrast, Rubio provides a visual parallel to the energetic, soulful history of his subject. Informed by his extensive community outreach, his artwork projects an intimate, yet panoramic view of San Antonio’s many Latino communities.
