Mural specialist Axel Moeller, the 86-year-old who has been working in Tacoma for nearly 10 years, just keeps popping up.

And it’s not all on Sixth Avenue.

After the column on Axel ran this week, among the responses was an e-mail with photos of several wall-sized murals in a local home. The one above looks inviting enough to enter.

Axel spends a lot of his time working outdoors – even in the rain – putting murals over graffiti for merchants along Sixth Avenue. Track him down, and most shops know him by name and sight, and he’ll put a mural on your car, your garage door or your living room wall.

Fees? Negotiable. Just be prepared for conversation to be part of the payment. Axel loves to chat.
