Street Art By Cal

Your Story, My Passion

Calina Mishay, “CAL,” began painting as a child. She grew up in a small, West Texas town that had a population of 600 people. Jokingly, she would say, “Poor? We didn’t know what poor was because no one in town had money.” After years of emotional, life-dealt hardships, Cal’s style was born through her expressive painting strokes. Her art career began in 2012, focusing on one-of-a-kind commissions for her clientele. In 2016, Cal expanded her work, tackling urban street art murals throughout Texas. Inspired by the budding street art movement, she introduced the South to her signature style and use of vibrant color. Her murals began popping up all over Texas, organically serving as backdrops for photographs by tourists, locals and even celebrities (one of Cal’s murals is featured on Aaron Watson’s album titled, Vaquero). She was also featured on the Texas Country Reporter. As Cal’s street art exploded, and popularity amongst revitalized small towns grew, so did the desire to own some of her unique fine art.

Cal wanted to keep authentic to who she is  and where she is from; focusing on the experience and relationships with the people in the cities she travels to just as much as the art. In her opinion, art is a representation of connection, of belonging, and of healing. It has always been her goal to be known as the peoples’ artist, bringing love, acceptance, and friendship everywhere her art takes her. It is the ultimate badge of honor to see how art has impacted each community she has left her mark.
