Trompo Tacos is an authentic Mexican restaurant in Dallas, TX serving Mexican street style tacos. “After being named one of Bon Apetit’s Best New restaurants in 2016, Trompo continues to surprise their fans with fresh and bold flavors that always leave guests wanting more.” We were invited by their team of designers to create and paint an interior mural in one of their new restaurants.
The theme of the mural was non-cliche Mexican imagery in a flash tattoo style. A trompo is the name of a Mexican toy top that is spun using a string. This resembles the vertical rotisserie that the meat is cooked on and sliced off of (also called a trompo.) We incorporated images of a trompo top, sugar skull, pyramids all surrounding the iconic image of “Our Lady of Guadalupe” that appears throughout Mexican culture. The mural inspiration was drawn from a previous Mexican restaurant we painted in New Orleans. Check out some photos of the completed mural below.
