Unlike any other type of wall covering,
a wall mural can add a thrill and excitement to a room that
is truly awe
moment spent in a room with a wall
mural is changed into
a richer, more fulfilling experience. The energy of the living
and dynamically transformed towards the topic of the mural,
and some wall murals can alter perception of time and place completely.

place other than the room itself — real or imagined.
Wall Mural Origin
construction dates back centuries, and until the invention of
the camera and the beginning of poster printing, custom wall coverings
were the exclusive domain of artists and painters.
The most notable
of these efforts was Michelangelo's painting of the Sistine Chapel,
but there were many others. People began to realize that art on a
massive canvas is more
impressive and amazing than small paintings.
Of course, the sleazy side of wall mural
construction came into being with the invention of the spray
paint can - graffiti. The dictionary defines "graffiti" as:
A rude decoration inscribed on rocks or walls. Some graffiti
can be beautiful, but most is unpleasant
to look at and undesired. However, technically this type of "art" could
be classified as "murals" although this is a loose
interpretation. It may look bad to many of us but depending
on your perspective
some that would classify this as mural art.
