15 Fresh and Breathtaking Murals to Amaze You

Inspiring Wall Murals

As per Wikipedia definition: A mural is any piece of artwork painted or applied directly on a wall, ceiling or other large permanent surface. History of murals lies way back around 30,000 BC. Though Murals have roots in past but even today this art has found its own place. There are several styles and techniques adopted to accomplish this art. Way back in 19th century sometimes the paintings were created on large canvas and then attached to walls; this technique is called “marouflage”. This technique is still popular and is used with different styles.

The distinguishing feature of this special art is that the architectural elements of the given space are harmoniously incorporated into the picture made. Murals have always inspired the art lovers. You sitting on an elegant restaurant and the wall behind you will take you to some other world or era. Out of the people who would miss a breath after seeing a beautiful mural some are who creates art themselves and some are purely admirers of creativity. I am not a creator or designer but really love to admire art and hence thought to collect some really good pieces. Here are some of those fresh and breath-taking murals to amaze you and to inspire you.

Like styles and techniques one more thing is quite interesting in this art form i.e. the medium and method of creation. Some have used paint applied on plaster on walls or ceilings, some have used pigments mixed with water on a thin layer of wet and fresh lime mortar or plaster and then due to chemical reactions painting got their preservation powers. Egg, glue, oil etc. were also used by many.

Today oil paints, emulsion or acrylic paints applied by brush, roller or airbrush/aerosols but how it is done depends upon the clients who want such paintings to be done. With advancement in technology digital techniques are used to improvise and for accurate designs. Sometimes people don’t consider them as pure murals but still such skillfully crafted art has its own place. Murals have played a significant role in bringing the classy art to general public. Next time you visit to any such monument, a restaurant or walk across a wall with mural do stop and try to see the depth of the creativity. Notice how mural can change the mood and create the perfect ambiance. Next time do notice beautiful things in form of mural and I but you would cherish those designs for life. Enjoy!
