Daniel Anguilu’s art training, just about every step of the way, comes from trains.
But what started by tagging railcars has peaked in Houston with gallery shows, more mural work than he can handle, and a steady job operating a Metro light rail train that gives him a chance to scout out new opportunities.
“I know every wall I want to do along the rail line,” Anguilu, 34, says with a laugh. “It’s what I do.”
His geometric murals are a familiar sight in Midtown. The bright, theologically inspired spires painted on the side of the Baha’i Center on Fannin are one of many examples of his colorful pieces. All are topped with thick, spray-painted lines, giving the murals a stained-glass appearance.
