Dominican-born, Miami-based artist Elio Mercado is known for his expressive and powerful photorealistic murals, which have been installed in Guam, Abu Dhabi, and across South Florida in addition to the 2019 Hot Corner Legacy Mural painted on the exterior of the historic Morton Theatre. The project was funded by the Athens Cultural Affairs Commission, and will be unveiled during the annual Hot Corner Festival in June 2019.
