BILOXI, MS (WLOX) - Large sea life is starting to appear on the wall of one Biloxi restaurant.

Coast artist Marty Wilson is painting a huge mural that will cover the entire north side of The Reef restaurant. The mural will feature Wilson's favorite pieces of art, and "Big Mo" the Striped Grouper will be the star.

The artwork is expected to become an eye-catching attraction.

"This will be the largest original painted work of art in the state of Mississippi first of all," said restaurant owner Rob Stinson. "Secondly, it's what we sell in the restaurant, grouper, trout, tuna, all the famous fish that we are known for here on the MS Gulf Coast, so it really showcases our area to tourists."

The project started this past weekend and it should take about three months to complete.
