“We would like to express our great appreciation for the beautiful mural and motivational quotes you recently painted in our employee courtyard at Sharp Mesa Vista Hospital. Your creative ideas significantly enhanced the basic concept we originally had in mind for you to paint. We were especially pleased with the extra research you did to incorporate potted herbs in your mural that would be found in an Italian courtyard.
During the time you worked on the mural there was a wide variety of weather from rain to extreme heat. Yet you showed up every day and worked on the project despite less than ideal weather. Our employees were eager to have the garden available for use, and you finished the project on time as you promised. We also want to express our appreciation for cooperating with our Plant Operations staff and being safety conscious while working at our facility.
Our staff and patients are also continuing to enjoy the mural you painted in the ICU courtyard several years ago. Your murals have added a unique and beautiful element to both courtyards and will be enjoyed for many years to come.
Best wishes in your future endeavors.”
Chief Executive Officer
“It was our distinct pleasure to have Rik work with us on our beautiful additions to our home. He took some general ideas and created the enchanting entrance that your can see in the photos. He took pictures of tow of our favorite dogs and turned them into a clever scene as you can see. Sensitive to our needs, he added this bird as a reminder of the daughter who had recently passed away. We will forever be thinking of her and him when we see this.
Finally, for years we tried to repair paint splatters on the stucco and others could only figure out how to make it worse. Like magic, he concocted the precise shade of paint to cover these massive blotches. He hunted them all down and made them disappear.
It was a delight and honor to be in the presence of such a kind, gentle, creative individual.”
A Licensed Professional Muralist
OVER 35 YEARS
Providing custom, professional artwork, decorative painting and design in San Diego and the Southern California area for over 35 years. In other words, Art is my passion! A good artist will have complete knowledge of all aspects of wall mural work. In addition, designing a first-class piece of art should “Pop” and add outstanding “Wow” factor to any room or environment.
HOW IT WORKS
The first step is to contact me below for your work. After that we will brainstorm ideas and options to find the best artwork for your walls. From there we will come up with sketches to crystalize the concepts. After those thumbnails are drawn, we will begin prepping the areas and START PAINTING THE WALLS!
Wall murals have been found on prehistoric cave walls that transformed a space into a place of wonder and magic. Many ancient murals have been found within ancient Egyptian tombs (3150 BC) and in Juxtlahuacan Cave in Mexico (1,200 BC).
There are many words to describe types of murals:
Tuscany or Italian, modern, contemporary, abstract, realistic, landscapes, portraits, colorful, bold, soft. In addition, Trompe L’oeil, trick the eye, graffiti, ocean, sky, beach, tropical and this is only a partial list. I specialize in REALISTIC and TROMPE L’OEIL (Trick-The-Eye) murals although I’ve been called on to paint abstracts and others as well. Also, there are specialized FAUX techniques used such as Italian Plaster, Venetian Plaster, Color Glazing, etc.
Murals can be painted on:
Walls in Nurseries, Man Caves, Kitchens, Bedrooms, Living Rooms, Boardrooms, Lunch Rooms, Factory Walls and much more. Business logo murals also look great freshly painted onto wall entry areas. Hand Painted wall signs, mission statements, wall graphics, distressed bar signs are also in vogue.
