“Coaching The Game”

A MURAL is a work of art painted directly on a wall.

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). San Diego mural artist Rik Erickson has been creating custom murals for over 35 in the Southern California area. From colorful splashes of modern abstract art to traditional Tuscany Landscapes, murals can revitalize and change otherwise boring environments into something stunning.


Providing custom, professional artwork, decorative painting and design in San Diego and the Southern California area for over 35 years has been my passion.A good artist will have complete knowledge of all aspects of wall mural work. From designing a first-class composition, correctly prepping walls, choosing the proper paints and color combinations that will not fade over time to sealing with a UV clear-coat.


The first step is to contact me below for your work. We will brainstorm ideas and options to find the best artwork for your walls to be painted. From there we will come up with sketches to crystalize the concepts. After those thumbnail ideas are figured out , we will begin prepping the areas and START PAINTING THE WALLS!
