Creation of Flower Wall Mural in RINO, Denver

Creation of Flower Wall Mural in RINO, Denver

The Flower wall mural’s creation process started on May 1st, 2018. The mural is being painted on two ground level walls of a private house in River North district of Denver, CO. The client’s dog, Mei-Mei, is monitoring the process. As always, my husband Nick is helping me, taking care of our daughter Aleksandra, and painting while I’m with her. Bright hollyhocks, peonies, clematis are blooming now on previously grey walls. Even though the mural is not finished yet – the atmosphere of the yard has already changed dramatically. And it’s so fun to see the happy faces of the clients! The design for this floral mural was inspired by my previous mural with native plants and birds of Northern California in Oakland. The walls of the house before the mural: Come back in few weeks to see the finished mural! _____________ Denver, CO /...
Ten Year Mural Anniversary

Ten Year Mural Anniversary

2018 is the ten-year “Birds in a meadow” mural anniversary! It is one of the oldest outdoor murals that I participated in and that still exists. It was created in the summer of 2008 on the territory of a playground of a kindergarten in the center of St.Petersburg. You can read the story of how this mural came to life in my previous blog post “How you can get a mural job if nobody is hiring”> It was created using rope access, without a lift. It was my first ever mural using this type of access, it was both very challenging and fun. The modest appearance of the mural and it’s graphic style look especially good in the winter, that usually lasts more than six months there.   Considering  Saint Petersburg’s harsh climate, with it’s moist, cold and long winters, humid summers ten years is a pretty good age for a mural there! To see more pictures of the mural please visit this page> ___________________________________________________ 2008 / Saint Petersburg, Russia...
Mural Design for University of New Mexico in Albuquerque

Mural Design for University of New Mexico in Albuquerque

This post continues the line of posts of my design projects that weren’t realized. UNM Mural Design was created in June 2017. I was among three finalists chosen in a national call for this project. Though my design wasn’t chosen it was an interesting project to participate in. I learned a lot about the history of Albuquerque, New Mexico, The American South West during the research for this mural design. The left side of the design represents the nature, history and culture of Albuquerque, New Mexico and the establishment of Albuquerque and the University. The center of the design is a combination of symbolic signs. The ancient Zia sun symbol, that is on the New Mexican flag and on New Mexico’s state quarter, like the sun, shines through the whole composition of the mural. The globally known symbol of Albuquerque – the colorful hot air balloons, beautiful and unique adobe architecture, the Sandia Mountains, the state flower of NM: the Yucca, the mascot of the University of New Mexico: the Lobo and a book, as a symbol of knowledge create a dynamic center and unite all the themes of the mural together. The right side of the mural tells us more about the faculties of the University, the main symbols of the University of New Mexico, elements of science and education as a whole. I learned a lot about the University of New Mexico, it’s history, faculties and traditions. A mockup of a building with a mural design.

Graffiti Vandalism of my Mural “Viva Colorado” on Alameda and Santa Fe drive in Denver CO

Graffiti Vandalism of my Mural “Viva Colorado” on Alameda and Santa Fe drive in Denver CO

Graffiti Vandalism of my Mural “Viva Colorado” happened twice already after the mural was finished. The mural was created in September-October 2016 on Alameda and Santa Fe drive in Denver CO. To see the pictures of finished mural visit this page> Because of the large size of the mural and low budgets of the Denver public art program the city didn’t cover the mural with a costly anti-graffiti coating. The very public location of the mural, on the intersection of busy streets with lots of daily traffic and visitors to the site, unfortunately, attracts taggers and vandals. It was vandalized twice within a little more than a year of the mural existence. The first one was written right in the very center of the wall, on the face of a  Rocky Mountain bighorn sheep. A day later, after the tagging appeared my husband and I rushed to fix it to prevent more tagging and graffiti from appearing. And a day later the mural was like new again: The second tag appeared on the covered wagon with the first settlers. And as with first vandalism, it was fixed as promptly as possible. The Police never found the taggers even though they have a very good system of anti-graffiti actions. To see the pictures of creation of the mural visit this blog...
