“Inner World” Mural by GLeo
Where Are We In CLT?by Porter Metzler on May 26, 2020
Last week, we shared a photo of a giant shoe that was once the base of a float in Charlotte’s award-winning Thanksgiving Day parade. We gave you a clue to where you could find it — near the mural on the North side of the Hal Marshal Annex — BUT we never showed you the mural that is a much prettier sight than a big ‘ol boot.
Buildings that hold county offices aren’t usually the most exciting thing to look at but GLeo, a Colombian street artist who has pieces all across the globe, flipped the script at the Hal Marshal Annex.
Prior to the mural, visitors of the Annex were greeted by a drab two-story windowless brick wall of nothingness. Now, that same wall is a head-turning, car-stopping, “I gotta pull in and see that” explosion of paint and color.
GLeo painted her “Inner World” mural as a part of the 2019 Talking Walls Festival. In our humble opinion, the orange, yellow, and red tones make this mural really pop during sunrise and sunset. And, we’d be more than happy to start (or finish) our day looking at this stunning work of art.
