Muralist Tato Caraveo brings color to downtown Phoenix

Tato Caraveo is known for his colorful murals that line the streets of downtown Phoenix. He got his start when the owner of a local theater visited his art class at South Mountain High School and invited the students to practice mural painting on the side of his business. Caraveo and his friend took him up on the offer, a moment that changed his life. He shows Alberto his murals, describes how his technique is different from other muralists and explains why murals have become such an important part of downtown Phoenix.
