1276 Market Street, Harrisburg, PA

Children, flowers, and color were among the top themes requested by the neighborhood’s residents. Miami-based muralists Katerina and Juan, who create art together under the name TRATOS, combined these ideas to the new mural at 13th and Market Streets. The landmark mural is made possible by the generous support of The GIANT Company.

“It’s a massive mural and joyful beacon, welcoming people at an entrance to the vibrant Allison Hill neighborhood. This mural intends to reflect the neighborhood’s diversity and vitality,”

The Artist


The Miami-based artists merged their independent art careers to form TRATOS. The name signifies their artistic union through a combination of their last names, Travieso and Santos. "Tratos" in Spanish represents a commitment, a bond, and a promise to create a shared artistic reality in their paintings and murals. With this collaboration, they aim to tell a unique, expansive story rooted in their personal experiences. Their current focus is on nurturing, expanding, and reshaping the entity that is TRATOS, drawing inspiration from each other while allowing their personal journeys to shape their art. Their distinct strengths complement each other seamlessly: Travieso's precision in hard angles and fine details contrasts beautifully with Santos' talent for soft edges and bold color. Together, they explore uncharted territories in their artistic playgrounds.
