Frequently Asked Questions:

Since most people have a lot of questions about murals, I have included the following section of FAQ’s for your perusal.  

  • What is a “mural”?

A mural by definition is a painting that is done directly on a wall regardless of size or paint used by the artist. There is some controversy in the art world today about murals that are first painted on canvas then glued to walls.  Some believe that a mural on canvas is not a mural but instead it is a painting.  My personal feeling is that because the painting is attached with glue to the wall, that it then becomes hand painted canvas that is hung like wall paper.  However, should the artist or contractor glue canvas to a wall, then paint on the canvas, it is a mural.  (A mural is a painting that is created directly on a wall, the surface of the wall matters not.)

  • Can A Mural Be Painted On Any Surface?

Yes!  Murals can be painted on a numerous surfaces ranging from concrete to wood, wallboard to canvas and even on certain types of wall paper. The possibilities are absolutely endless!  

   

  • How Long Does It Take To Paint A Mural?

Painting a mural can take from anywhere from one day to several months depending on size and detail in the painting.  

 

 

  •   A Mural Increase The Value Of My Home?  

Yes! The value of a building will increase with at least the value of the commissioned mural providing it is painted directly on the wall surface.  

  • How Much Does A Mural Cost?  

A custom hand painted mural’s cost depends upon several factors: Size, Complexity, Location, and Surface.
