Finally! Something that I have always wanted to do has finally happened. I have painted my first mural art… well, it was three walls actually. Such a task seemed daunting at first; painting on a large scale wall for a popular restaurant is not the same as painting on a canvas in your own studio after-all. However, once I got started, I didn’t want to stop.
The brief was to design and paint a wall mural that is classy, that would create an atmosphere, and that would match the restaurant’s new style. I decided to go with the minimalism line-drawing design, and I used the restaurant’s navy blue and warm grey colours.
Line drawings are timeless and elegant, yet have a modern twist. They also seamlessly blend into the background and make a statement at the same time. The first thing you see when you enter the restaurant is the large painting of two friends enjoying a drink, as if they are part of the crowd. Meanwhile, the attentions of pedestrians walking past the restaurant are enraptured by a very mural art of three women looking the quaint street.
Below is a video time-lapse of my progress. I hope that you enjoy.
