Local Artist Receives School District Contract




Artist, Ray Gatica, keeps the old tradition of hand-painting murals and large graphics alive. Currently, he has been awarded the contract by North Forest Independent School District to hand-paint a variety of large graphics consisting of assorted college logos throughout North Forest High School. The art will not only act as stimulating, decorative graphics but are designed to create awareness of available colleges, while motivating and inspiring  students to continue their education into local and state colleges. See samples of finished works.

Gatica, has also hand painted and created large logos for other districts like: Katy School District, Fort Bend ISD and other commercial clients like The TEXANS, and the Houston SPCA, and private clients.

Gatica still uses the old method of laying out the designs on the wall  by using the old pouncing method used by old sign companies, to transfer designs to the respective surface and hand- painting directly on the wall using brushes and rollers;  sometimes he uses his airbrush to enhance the graphics and murals. Some of his painted graphics have been as high up as twenty feet in gymnasiums.  Usually, hand painting the graphics is required on rough surfaces, and on block or brick walls, where vinyl graphics may not work.
