Local artist recently finished a commissioned mural in downtown Nashville.
Off the Wagon Tours asked Fuentes to create an image iconic of the city. The United States flag, skyline and guitar combine with the historic setting on Lafayette Street to make the landmark easy to find for arriving tourists. Visitors are invited to take photos at the location.
In addition to the Lafayette location, Fuentes has five other murals in the works with four on Broadway and one on Charlotte Avenue. The largest will be a photo-op spot with boots and revolvers on the wall of Loser’s Bar downtown.
“I was raised by cowboys. I’m trying to keep my art true to traditional Nashville roots and music,” said Fuentes about recent trends to modernize downtown.
