Concrete Canvas: Gamma Acosta Completes Peyton Manning Mural

Thanks to an overwhelming response, local street-artist Gamma Acosta found a home for this historic Peyton Manning Denver Broncos mural. It can be found proudly displayed on the wall of Monkey Barrel Bar on 1611 Platte Street in Denver. Gamma’s mural was inspired by love for his home team, the state of Colorado, and recognition of this amazing moment in time when Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos have finally arrived at the Super Bowl XLVIII.

As an artist, Gamma represents the Coloradoan and Broncos fan who truly gets just how big this game is for our state. Since John Elway won the last back-to-back Super Bowl titles, fifteen years ago, our population in the Denver/Metro/Broomfeild area has spiked. Colorado deserves a Super Bowl win more than any place is the nation. Peyton Manning deserves it, too. Every time Manning and New England quarterback Tom Brady have met in the AFC Championships, the home team won. We did that. Every time, that team went on to win the Super Bowl. Fingers crossed. Superstitions aside. This is our year.

The stunning freehand portrait work  is now finished, just in time for the Super Bowl weekend. Gamma is perfectly capturing this moment in time, not from a corporate or commercial standpoint, but from an artistic one. A personalized one. A feeling that only true Broncos fans can relate to. Maybe you do have to bleed orange and blue to relate. I don’t care who you are, if you live in Colorado, this is big.
