"A city is only as great as its Public Art"...
Rubadiri has been committed to the idea of murals and public art for almost 3 decades- singlehandedly battling for it to be seen as part of civic life. Since his early victories- like getting the National Carnival Commission to commission a 900 ft mural around its perimeter- a number of other institutions have requested murals and a number of other mural artists have emerged.

One of the more striking murals is the image of the 2 Traditional Mas Fancy Indians in downtown Port of Spain. It is the only permanent marker of the presence of the Trinidad Carnival in the capital city of Carnival outside of the season! The mural was spruced up in February 2019. On Wednesday 27th May 2015 at 5:30pm. there was a formal launch and naming of the mural ‘The Return of the Canboulay.’ Located in the Guardian car park, corner of Queen’s & St. Vincent Streets, Port-of-Spain, the mural- which was commissioned by Mr Gregory Aboud- was a collaborative effort of Rubadiri Victor and Keegan Simon- with the assistance of young artists Francois and Jean Michel Le Blanc and Matthew Blackman. The other major Carnival mural in the city is also by Rubadiri- a 40ft+ one inside the Backyard Restaurant on the corner of Picton Street & Tragerete Road, Newtown. It depicts a Steelband 'Pan-around-the-neck' side & Traditional Mas.
