Mural art is far more than decorations. It uses wall surfaces to represent ideas, emotions, and beliefs. From cave paintings to graffiti art they have featured across walls, ceilings, and floors throughout history.
Mural painting reached its historical peak in the 15th and 16th centuries with the frescoes of Piero della Francesca, Michelangelo, and Raphael but their demand lessened as popularity for wall hung art and decoration grew.
Due to their site-specific nature, they are created to suit a particular space, taking into account the size, surface finish and positioning of the intended location. Murals work as well on outdoor walls as they do on indoor ones and can be created or residential, commercial and corporate projects.
They can involve painting directly on the wall free hand or conforming to a more planned structure using pre-made elements that are attached.
Murals truly transform a space by including trompe l'oeil ("deceive the eye") techniques to trip the viewer or add a sense of depth or perspective. Working with a wide variety of artists, we can provide you with murals to suit your home, office or outdoor space.
