Ground Mural Painting in Mountair Park

Ground Mural Painting in Mountair Park

My second ground mural painting for Lakewood’s 40 West Art Line. The mural is painted right next to the children’s playground and baseball field in Mountair Park. The mural is called “Blooming city”. The mural design was inspired by the agricultural history of Lakewood and the urban farm that is also in Mountair Park. The flowers and plants represent the growth and new beginnings that are happening in the city. To see the design for both murals please visit this post >   My first mural for the 40 West Artline “Movement” is painted on the sidewalk of 17th Street, between Pierce and Reed streets also in Lakewood, CO.  To see pictures of it please visit my previous blog post > _____________ Lakewood, CO / 2018 ART BRINGS PEOPLE TOGETHER!

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 /...
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.

Mural Design Project for Elizabeth Hotel, Fort Collins

Mural Design Project for Elizabeth Hotel, Fort Collins

2017 wasn’t a very fruitful year for me in the number of realized mural projects. But I applied and created many mural designs that weren’t created for different reasons. One of them is the mural design for the newly constructed Elizabeth Hotel in Fort Collins, Colorado. It was a call for three murals 7′ x 35′ that were supposed to be painted on the exterior facade of the hotel’s entrance. After doing thorough research about the name of the hotel, the history of Fort Collins and surrounding area, I came up with the designs for two mural panels. The first one presents a figure of Elizabeth Hickok Robbins Stone, also named Auntie Stone. She was an American pioneer woman who played a vital role in the establishment of Fort Collins.       Also, the hotel itself is carrying her name. The circle around her head represents the Colorado sun. Behind her shoulders are the houses and buildings of her beloved Fort Collins. To the left of the woman is her wooden cabin, named “Auntie” Stone’s cabin, the only remaining building associated with Collins Camp. Another important part of Colorado for visitors to be acquainted with are the Rocky Mountains that are depicted in the background. With both mural designs, I decided to bring more nature into the city environment. That is why there are many trees, intricate branches and plant elements and skies. The main figure of the second mural design is a Buffalo –a  symbol of the American West. The figure of the buffalo pays a tribute to this gorgeous animal who just about 500 years ago were freely roaming on the territory...
The Creation of an Interior Mural for a Swimming Pool

The Creation of an Interior Mural for a Swimming Pool

The Interior mural for Lakewood Link Recreation Center Swimming pool was created spring 2017. The wall art was painted with high-build epoxy based paint. This material tenaciously adheres to the substrate to resist moisture, abrasion, chemical attack and extreme temperatures.     Tha mural was painted by me, with my husband, Nick Angelo. The first day two ladies from the Lakewood volunteer group were learning the techniques of mural painting. The Rocky Mountains and bright sun were the centerpieces of the mural. The view of the mural from the center floor, where the entrance into the water slide is located. We’re enjoying the finished mural.    The wall before and after the mural.
