Giannis Mural

The Bucks’ Giannis Antetokounmpo, larger than life.
But not by much. 

In May 2022, artist Mauricio Ramirez finished painting a three-story mural of NBA superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo on the east side of the 600 EAST building. The recreation of the nearly 7-foot-tall forward towers 54 feet over downtown Milwaukee. The new mural came to life through a collaboration between the Bucks, Milwaukee Downtown Business Improvement District #21 and 600 EAST building owner Dan Nelson, Jr.
“As a longtime supporter and season ticket holder, we are thrilled that the Bucks and Milwaukee Downtown chose 600 EAST for this fantastic tribute to Giannis,” Nelson said during a press conference unveiling the project. “Mauricio’s artistry showing Giannis figuratively looking forward – and literally toward downtown Milwaukee, the Deer District and his Fiserv Forum home court – seems fitting for a champion who has achieved so much yet continues to strive to improve every day.”



Mauricio Ramirez is a painter and muralist who creates art that reflects the diverse cultures of the communities where it resides.

Ramirez was born in Berwyn, Illinois, and currently splits time between Milwaukee – where he has a studio – Chicago and Albuquerque, New Mexico. Ramirez attended the University of Illinois, but says he picked up on form, art theory and color from graffiti artists growing up. Pervasive themes in his work include neighborhood, culture and diversity.
