Norris Centers in San Antonio recently made an a major upgrade to it’s patio – with an artistic flair. In addition to previously staining the bland concrete slab a custom mural has been added to the far wall, which adds depth and flair to the outdoor space. To achieve the one-of-a-kind masterpiece Norris commissioned artist Jeronimo Graue Cornejo from Mexico City. Jeronimo completed the mural in just two weeks, drawing his inspiration from the Texas Hill Country and Mediterranean architecture. “We get compliments on the mural all the time,” says San Antonio General Manager Jeff Guidry, “it really completes the patio with a warm feeling and extends the space.” The mural is the perfect backdrop for cocktail parties, receptions or even ceremonies.
About the Artist
Jeronimo Graue Cornejo was born and raised in Mexico City. He started painting as a young child after being inspired by his Grandmother, who read to him from her collection of art history books. She also shared her private art collection with him and discussed what makes art a lasting form of expression. Jeronimo, now 20 years old, spent two years in Florence, Italy attending Art and Painting classes, which also allowed him to travel Europe to expand his artistic vision. Having completed the mural project in San Antonio, Jeronimo has returned to Mexico City to complete his degree at the Universidad Anahuac.
