Alberto Herrera’s Airbrushed Mural

God Bless The Lowrider Muralist

Crosses and crucifixes are powerful visual reminders of God’s love, and they also serve as a witness of hope to the world. Being blessed with artistic talents, muralist Alberto Herrera had to be privileged when he airbrushed the praying hands and the background scene of the three crucifixes resembling the time when Christ died on the cross. Most Lowrider Murals depict religious scenes and or portraits on the trunks or hoods of cars as a sacred reminder of honor and faith towards their religion. Religious artwork has been a tradition for decades on custom painted lowrider automobile but like a tradition, the kids portray the same themes on their Lowrider Bikes and as you see here in these images, Pedal cars too! This Alberto Herrera creation was formulated and airbrushed on a little kids pedal car using different shades of Axalta Paint brand candy blues and pearlescent. To seal this creation up in this specialized spray booth, Axalta Chromax LE 8300 clear was sprayed on by our Axalta Paint specialist Steve Chaparro, who’s other departments also include giving paint tips for the Lowrider Paint Tip of the Month column featured in every issue of Lowrider magazine. For all Lowrider Artists who airbrush murals, custom paint or lay down gold leaf pinstriping, only the most quality products are used, especially when all the creative painted talents need to be covered deep and protected. It could be said that all paint materials used on most Lowriders are blessed only with the best materials!
