Newsflash 2 Painting murals is much different from painting smaller works. A person is completely overwhelmed and absorbed by the painting itself. Much like those who do large scale sculpture who I've talked with, the scale of the work makes me think of myself more as a illustionist than an artist. Painting murals is somewhere between fine art and house painting. It's hard to get too snooty when you're up several stories on a scaffold with the wind blowing twenty-five miles per hour, covered in paint and eating lunch out of a paper bag.

Newsflash 1 The still lifes and trompe-l'oeil artworks featured in "Feast the Eye, Fool the Eye" and "Visual Deceptions" could be thought of as the precursor to the concept of "virtual reality." Trompe-l'oeil paintings have been a European favorite since birds were tempted to fly through the painted windows of Pompeii. The genre became a highly-developed specialty in Rembrandt's time, when artists competed with each other to see who could fool viewers into thinking their depicted objects were real.

News Flash 4 Murals can be used to create a mood, make a statement or simply provide beauty in either a residential or commercial setting. Murals can be created in various sizes and can accommodate all monetary budgets. I can paint murals directly on walls, floors, ceilings, buildings or anywhere your imagination desires. I can also create murals on canvas so the original work of art can be as mobile as its owner. Murals can be created for formal environments, children’s rooms, or in public places…I simply use paint to express your imagination and dreams. I cover all areas - Chicago Murals.
