Escape the big city while snapping a photo of the wild Mother Earth mural in the heart of Montrose.

Located within the eponymous neighborhood at the intersection of Montrose Boulevard and Bomar Street, the flowing locks of the Mother Earth mural can be found hiding on the side the Hollywood Food & Cigar store near W Gray Street.

Created by artist and designer Nicky Davis (@nickydavis), Davis’ work can often appear whimsical, but his subject matter is often based on how both nature and humans interact and influence one another.

The large mural which features a wide-eyed, animated Mother Nature in blues, greens, and purples, is influenced by Davis’ travels across the United States by car while visiting as many National Parks as possible.
