Portraits Behind the Paint

Portraits Behind the Paint - Meet Chris Rogers, the artist behind the mural at 12th & Chicon streets.  “…Chris Rogers’ mural at 12th and Chicon streets was painted over, sparking outrage from the community over what many saw as an act of gentrification…” (Austin American-Statesman, 2/19/2018). Chris shares his passion behind his work, what it was like painting for and with the East Austin community, and his thoughts on dealing with change while staying true to one's self.
