Had an awesome time painting on the home turf! Here’s south Texas native and country legend “King George”- N. St. Mary’s, San Antonio Texas 2019. Great group of people doing great thing in this one of a kind city. I’m so happy to be apart of @sanantoniostreetart! Big thanks to @gravelmouthgallery for putting together an awesome event #sanantonioart #realcountrymusic #texasart #matttumlinson #kinggeorge. @georgestrait @spratx
The next time you visit San Antonio you'll want to go pay your respects to the King.
King George, that is. A new mural depicting Strait has shown up along the St. Mary's Strip. The strip is just West of the McAllister Freeway near Riverwalk. We love the Texas shaped medals.
Artist Matt Tumlinson shared the photo on social media. He painted the Kingly version of George as part of "2@M: Murals & Music @ Midtown" event hosted by SASAI. The event was created to "to establish a city where street art is abundant and accessible for all residents and visitors to enjoy."
Wouldn't it be great if George Strait was just constantly on tour in Texas? Once upon a time, he was. If only the 'Honky Tonk Time Machine' album could bring us back to the days when you could hit the road and see George somewhere in Texas just about any given week.
