A mural is any piece of artwork painted or applied directly on a wall, ceiling or other permanent surfaces. A distinguishing characteristic of mural painting is the architectural elements harmoniously incorporated into the picture. It is our job as mural artist to bring all these things together in the painting.
We see many small towns using murals to create tourist attractions to boost economic income. Murals play an important part in communities because they bring art into the public scene and help educate about the arts. When we do a mural, it means we gain a wider audience than would have otherwise been exposed to the arts and that is very exciting for us.
Inside or outside wall art can be done in homes, restaurants, schools, churches, day care centers, hospitals, retirement homes, hotels, retail shops, coffee shops, teen rooms, baby rooms, old buildings, and the list goes on. We can also paint company logos for businesses.
The way it works is we complete a complementary consultation which leads to design and layout of the proposed mural. We deliver a written price quote that our client approves before we start any work. We reserve the right of creation on all our work that is deemed in the best interest of the art piece and, therefore, may make changes without additional cost to the client.
Once completed, if it is deemed necessary, we will coat/seal the mural to help protect the work from UV rays and possible surface damage.
We love the design process and work with our clients to create the mural of their dreams. If you are considering wall art, then you should know that pre-fabricated murals and decals are often mass-produced and lack the personal touches of hand painted pieces and are not the original work of the artist. They are often not fitted to the individual wall sizes, and the clients cannot have any of their ideas or wishes added to the work of art. Working with In The Light Artistry, you can add special touches and create a one of a kind piece.
