Gloria combines fine art surrealism with the scale of street art to give Común a healing presence. Her work depicts beatific visions of animal and ethereal being; with painted acrylic, brushed metal and reclaimed wood—nature is brought into harmony with the hard edges of industry.
Gloria Muriel painted a 16'x120' wall with rollers and brushes for Bread and Salt Gallery in Barrio Logan. The wall was painted in honor of Women's Month, March 2014.

October 2012, San Diego, CA.- Great collaboration wall with Maxx Moses at Cirello Gallery in North Park, San Diego. Most of the work was done during night time. I have to say you get to meet interesting people roaming the streets during late hours of the night .
September 2012, San Diego, CA.- While painting the wall at French Gourmet, Anne a resident of the same neighborhood asked for a commissioned wall for her kombucha business. I asked my good friend Monstrinho to help me with the background and this was the result.
September 2012, San Diego, CA.- Final session with Monstrinho and Michael Haff to finish Azalea Park, a neighborhood community within City Heights in the greater San Diego, California area. This wall started around August of last year (2011) when a friend Marisa Gallego mentioned she had a wall at her neighborhood that was vacant, I then called Monstrinho and we decided to do a collab. Since that time the wall has recorded the talents of other great artists like Beth Emmerich, Tecui and Eloaf.The community has been very receptive to the wall and locals are now talking of declaring it as the official community art passage.
September 2012, Tijuana, BC. Mexico.- September I was very happy to get a visit from a good friend of mine Tanya Mensen, while on her visit we decided to take our talents and those of others south of the border. The initial plan (if there ever was one) was to enjoy a quiet day painting in Tijuana, it ended up being a great collaboration between five individuals connecting with the community in a live setting using art as the communicating tool. Thank you to all the participating artists Michael Haff, Monstrinho, Tanya Mensen and our Tijuana wall scout El Norteño, thank you friends for a great time.
Also thank you to the family who donated this amazing wall can't remember their names but THANK YOU. In case you care to visit, the wall is located in La Colonia Soler in Tijuana.
Early this month I had great time donating a hat to the Autism Tree Project Foundation for they're 19th Annual Hats Off to San Diego Luncheon.

I would like to thank everyone at ATPF for the invite had a great time.
Here's the finished piece:

Damn! Just wait until you see the amazing work these women painted on my wall!!! The graffiti collective Few and Far Women.com finished up their west coast tour yesterday at my house in Colonia Lindavista, Tijuana. The ten artists painted for one week making stops in Sacramento, San Francisco, Los Angeles and Tijuana. The art collective got started in June 2011, and already they have been sponsored by Ironlak and participated last year in the prestigious Art Basel-Miami. Artist and organizer Meme brought the women together, and sent a proposal to Ironlak last year. Meme now runs the collective’s website, and organizes more events and projects for the artists. ”I have to think a year in advance,” Meme told me.
The collective keeps growing, but is a unique group of all women artists from far-flung regions of the U.S. Women hailing from San Francisco, San Diego, Miami, Seattle, Oakland, now work together on big group projects, kickin’ it and challenging each other to do more and better. The whole neighborhood turned out to watch as ten women artists took to the wall beginning at 10 AM on Monday morning. On Sunday, my friend Chilo told our neighbor Don Rafael about the project, but nobody could imagine how big this was going to be.
When you told me, ”Some people are coming to paint this wall,” says Don Rafael, “I didn’t think it was going to be the next day!” Half a dozen people came by during the day to invite the artists to come and paint their walls, and the local graffitero kids stood watch for hours, admiration mixed with a tinge of envy.
“Hay que cuidarla,” advised artist Gloria Muriel. “You have to take care of it now.” Like many local neighborhood people, Don Rafael appreciates the beauty and life the art gives to the street, but worries that the local kids might tag the wall.
“Los graffiteros, espero que no se desmayen,” says Don Rafa. “Vamos a ver que pasa.” The graffiteros, I hope they aren’t discouraged by this! We will see how long this lasts.
Don Rafa proudly showed me the lights he installed last month in the alley, and guesses that the illumination will protect the space. But for now, seeing the happy smiles of moms, and kids and teenagers just makes my day!
Stay tuned for more interviews and photos. For now, I gotta go to work!
