Murals

Murals

Murals are a way for me to express myself on a vast scale by interpreting the vision of a client. I listen to what a client is saying and also what he is not saying, therein lies the essence of the creation of the piece.


The mural is basically live theatre. I am performing as a character on stage looking out of the proscenium arch at my captive audience. They watch every day as the image that’s in my mind start to take shape and come to life.
The production begins with a blank wall and a myriad of questions from the audience, as time goes by they can now see what I had explained to them in the beginning.


The excitement builds because the crescendo is fast approaching. The details are added the music is playing and the unmistakable feeling of serotonin is being released and shared amongst all who come in contact with this amazing performance. I sign my name bow to the audience and exit stage left, until we meet again!
