Support the independent voice of Phoenix and help keep the future of New Times free.

It's about time Phoenix sees some serious mural love. In the interest of giving credit to their artists and because we're losing track of the times we've said, "Woah, when did that go up?", we bring you Mural City, a series on the murals springing up around town -- their artists, their hosts and their inspirations.

If the crazy weather continues today, you might not be able to catch Lalo Cota working on his mural at Tacos de Juarez on Roosevelt Road, just north of Seventh Street. But his skeletons are in progress and should be done by the New Year.

Cota's been a mural machine -- you can see more of his work on Carly's Bistro, the Bee's Knees and along Grand Avenue.

Check out more photos, including the massive rooster he painted on the side of the building, after the jump ...

Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Phoenix with no paywalls.
