Ideas for Interior Wall Decoration in the Designing of Bars and Restaurants

Back in 2008, I participated in the creation of wall decorations for a bar and restaurant “Pirate Flint” in Saint Petersburg, Russia. It was a very big project for our art studio “33plus1”, it included many wall murals, textured wall panels, faux stone wall decoration, sculptures and window art.  Hand painted wall murals in marine themes were all over the restaurant: Paintings of old passenger ships in a harbour of Holland. Wall decoration with fishing boats at the pier. The Murals were made by me, Yulia Avgustinovich, Michael Buntin and Ludmila Karavai. The process of mural painting. Ceiling mural by Samoilov Den. _________________________________________________ The walls in the main hall were covered with textured wall panels made of plaster, cement block and fake stones. _________________________________________________ Fake sharks, a sculpture of a pirate, reliefs and wall murals created an atmosphere of old-time pirate ship and put visitors in a pirate party mood. Shark sculptures were made by Petuhova Darya. The sculpture of the pirate Flint was created from blocks of cellular lightweight concrete. All other reliefs, faux stones were created from this material too. The architecture and interior design: Artushenko Aleks and Krivozna Andrew. In the creation of the designs and wall decoration participated: Pavel Shugurov, Drevlo Vsevolod, Korablev Sergey, Musyka Sergey, Bogdan, Klimovsky Mihael, Pisarev Aleks and others.

Mural for Marijuana Dispensary “Port of Oakland”

Mural for Marijuana Dispensary “Port of Oakland”

Last week I wrote about my first outdoor wall art in America.

As soon as the shop opened they decided to decorate their walls with some murals. At first, a graffiti artist was hired to do some basic ornamental décor and their logo on the wall. As for the main wall in the marijuana dispensary, they wanted something unique, something that would connect them with Oakland. So the theme for the mural was chosen – it was the port of Oakland as the dispensary is located in the western part of the city, very close to the port.   Because the shop was already open, I was only able to work after the dispensary’s working hours. It wasn’t bad, it just took me almost three weeks to complete this wall mural, despite the fact that I’m usually very fast worker. I could work only few hours a night. And I actually liked it – I was fresh every day and was working very efficiently. I’m really proud of the end result. Detailed, realistic, but not overly “dry”, the mural gives patients and workers of the dispensary something to rest their eyes on, enjoy the wall art while they are waiting in line. Blue tones of the mural painting force you to relax, sit back and enjoy the details, make you forget that you are in the middle of a city. After few months some flower paintings were added to the surrounding...
