“King of the Road” is a powerful ode to social equity, to breaking boundaries and to accessing new opportunities for all. This spectacular mural depicts, Houston, an African American boy from Houston, TX enjoying his brand new bike. The bike represents a new way to enjoy his freedom, and provides him with the capacity to go to new places beyond his usual boundaries. On the handlebar you will notice the “H”, hand sign of Houston, which is a wink from the artist, famous for his hand sign murals.
