Muralist Most Likely to Bring Back the Age of Aquarius

Rex Hamilton

Whether it's his actual wall-sized outdoor murals – as on East Seventh's Nasha or Drifter Jack's Hostel on Guadalupe – or his gallery-enhancing smaller works, the round-spectacled Hamilton's paintings radiate like the second coming of all that was good and colorful about them ol' hippies back in the day, making sure some lucky parts of Austin stay as bright as they are weird.
