Beer Mural Design for a Pub Area in a Marketplace

Beer Mural Design for a Pub Area in a Marketplace

I created a design for a mural for a beer hall in the marketplace in Aurora, CO. The idea for the mural was to be very subtle in color and tone with just some barely noticeable tonal nuances. That is why in the design for this beer mural I used a lot of metallic paint: copper, silver, a variation of golden and reflective graphite paints, which are representative of brewing equipment. So when you look at the wall from different angles you can see various details, that would be unnoticeable from other sides. The wall for this mural was situated in the beer hall of a marketplace. On the mockups, the wall is shown with a textured design. Unfortunately, the mural was never realized. The marketplace for which the mural design was created was opened in 2016. The ground mural that I created in August – September of 2016 was completed during the time of its construction and was dedicated to its opening. ___________________  Colorado/...
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...

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. Today I decided to write about my first interior wall mural in America: mural “the Port”.  It was created in the fall of 2013 for the same medical marijuana dispensary “Magnolia Wellness” that commissioned me for the mural “Native Birds and Plants of Northern California”. 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...
