The gigantic mural that went up on a two-story Seventh Ward home last week is finished and the man behind the mystery is MTO, a Berlin-based street artist currently making the rounds on a road trip. Before completing "Louisiana Blue Note," on this house at Touro and Marais Streets, he was making the magic happen in Miami for Art Basel and then Saratoga, Florida. Local artist and NoLa Rising founder, Rex Dingler, curated the "event" and told Curbed NOLA that he heard MTO wanted to paint a house and reached out to the homeowner, who was obviously cool with this happening.
