the second facility, owners, Kurt and Rochelle Korpi, envisioned a main street
from a small-town, USA, with business facades painted simulating a main
street. “He had quite a vision of what was to come and what he wanted for
the main street scene”, says local, Humble, TX, artist Ray Gatica, who
helped the Korbis bring their vision to life at the gaming facility by
painting the various larger than life sized business facades as dictated by
Korbi. Korbi provided sample
images for the artist to go by, and the artist took it from there to paint the
17-feet tall, life-size business facades. The faux business fronts consist of
a standard gas station, a bank, a restaurant/bistro, police station, gun/ammo
store, a theatre, etc. Along with the simulated business front there are also
clouds, trees in the backgrounds and utility poles to tie it all together
along with large graphics, signage and lettering and some faux finish work to
simulate stone work and brick walls. “It is really quite exciting, it turned
out nice and the owners were pleased” says, Gatica.
of the facades were inspired from the “Back to The Future Movie” - to
simulate a main street in a small town. The
length of the simulated street is approximately 150 feet in length, by 20 feet
high. The painting was done on both sides and on both ends of the corridor.
the main street/main corridor there are alleys, and various hall ways that
make a maze where the customers can maneuver around as they play tactical
games with friends and other attendees/gamers. There are also cars and other
objects to be used for cover while the customers play the tactical games.
demographics are for boys’ ages between 13-17 and for older ages, both men
and women who like this type of thing”, says Korbi. The indoor,
air-conditioned facility will also act as a training facility for police
departments, and for police K-9 training.
of a mural, which is what we do, I consider this project as a large decorative
painting project. It was both fun and tedious with all the lettering and
detail, says Gatica.
