Our Pick: Neon Drive, Nolan Street underpass

San Antonio is home to a wide variety of colorful and unique murals — and they keep popping up. Unsurprisingly, this year’s mural sprung out of the Luminaria festival, San Antonio’s weeks-long public art festival. Titled “Neon Drive,” this eye-popping, 300-foot long mural is tucked under the railroad bridge that crosses Nolan Street (between N Cherry St. and Chestnut St.). Its creator, Iker Muro, drew his inspiration from refracting light, and used optical illusions and bold shapes (that could have been pulled from a 90s style guide) to get the point across. The mural blends beautifully with its neighbor, a blue and red mural painted during the 2013 Luminaria, and has created a vibrant gateway into Eastside San Antonio.
