Murals and Trompe L'Oeil
Murals, or wall murals, or wall paintings, are paintings
painted directly onto walls or onto another surface which is then
fixed to the wall. See What
is a mural? for more information about murals.
My Approach as a Mural Artist
I take the approach that murals must combine the subject
matter specified by the client with enough visual interest to survive
repeated viewings as people use the room the mural is in. This requires
murals to have a strong theme to make an immediate impact, and often
requires highly detailed painting together with sweeping perspectives
and the introduction of lighter touches in places.
As you will see below, I paint murals in almost any style,
depending on what the client requires, and themes vary from landscapes
to graffiti and abstract art.
Please contact me if you would
like to commission a mural yourself. When emailing me, please
tell me where you are, approximate dimensions and the subject you
have in mind.
Murals are priced according to the length of
time they take to complete (a combination of size, complexity and
location). See How
to Commission a Mural for more information.
Your mural can be painted straight onto the wall or onto a canvas
in my studio and then fixed to the wall. For more information on
