From the latin mūrālis, meaning ‘of the wall’, murals have been around for millennia. In fact, they are one of the oldest forms of human expression. Think Paleolithic cave art. Their appeal is in making a dramatic artistic statement. And when they’re applied to the exterior of a building, that statement is public. In this way, murals have been used through history for political expression or brand building. But they’re often also employed for pure beautification and they’re always commissioned by those who understand the appeal of art.
Whether you’re wanting to bring a new aesthetic to your business, or some beauty to your home, you could choose nothing more artful and classic than murals. Original artwork applied directly to the wall feels very personal to the physical space. After all, you can’t just pack it up and take it with you. But that’s the very appeal – that it belongs in its place in a timeless way. Future owners will inherit the art you leave with the building… a permanent imprint of your aesthetic like a fine piece of architecture. A beautifully painted mural on a feature wall will also add to the value of your home or business… if you ever choose to sell up.
