ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – A new piece of art now sits in the place of a once iconic Albuquerque mural. 

Workers at a warehouse off Lead and I-25 commissioned the iconic Pac-Man piece and since then they’ve seen visitors from all over stop and take pictures in front of the mural. But last week, surveillance cameras captured someone tagging a name on top of the artwork.

On Sunday, the same artist returned to repaint the wall, which now sports a painting of Mario and Princess Peach.
