Embrace your walls today
Many designers now create innovative wall murals for application to feature walls. Murals are unique presentations of the designer’s approach to space and typically handcrafted to the designer’s specifications with amazing results.
Murals have a large place in our society. They are used to beautify and influence while lifting the spirits of those who view them. Murals can be religious in nature, patriotic, provocative or inspirational. Murals are also ingrained in the histories of many cultures and societies.

The very first recorded murals were found in the caves of Lascaux in southern France and in Alamira, Spain. They have been dated to 17,000 BC. The murals are relatively simple, depicting bulls and other animals. The scale of the images were quite large, like murals today, with one bull being 17 feet wide. Murals can also be found in the Far East dating back to 1700 B.C. in China, Korea and Japan. There are also Buddhist murals in Ajanta, India dated at about 200 BC.
Graffiti Style Murals
Recently, graffiti and street art have played a key role in contemporary wall painting. Such graffiti/street artists as Keith Haring, Shepard Fairey, Mint&Serf, Futura 2000, Os Gemeos and Faile among others have successfully transcended their street art aesthetic beyond the walls of urban landscape and onto walls of private and corporate clients. As graffiti/street art became more main stream in the late 1990s, youth oriented brands such as Nike, Red Bull and Wieden Kennedy have turned to graffiti/street artists to decorate walls of their respective offices. This trend continued through 2000’s with graffiti/street art gaining more recognition from art institutions worldwide.
