This is one of my favorite walls in Las Vegas when I was there in December 2016. Two years later, the wall has been painted over most likely by the owner who had no appreciation for the artwork - beauty is in the eye...sort of thing. That is the nature of murals and graffiti, ever-changing and sometimes with many contributors, like in this image. The outdoor portrait gallery I assume, are pictures of people who live in the area. The building is located in Las Vegas vastly changing Art District.

A portrait is a painting, photograph, sculpture, or other artistic representation of a person, in which the face and its expression is predominant. The intent is to display the likeness, personality, and even the mood of the person. I think this muralist does a fine job of capturing his subjects. I don't know his subjects, yet I feel as if I do know them somehow.
