Wall Murals

Wall Murals

In the beginning, murals were beautiful artworks painted directly onto walls. Perhaps one of the oldest art forms created by man evident by the existence of cave paintings which are found all over the world. In the earliest forms, they were scratched or etched and later arose the art of paint.

The mural would normally be commissioned by a patron or a government institution because of the costs involved. This is why most of the most famous and beautiful ones are accessible to the public. Leonardo da Vinci and Michelangelo are known for the most famous murals in the world. They were often painted by teams of artists but there were also a number who worked on their own.

During the Baroque period, they became very popular amongst the European royalty and the wealthy aristocrats. They had biblical and symbolic murals painted in on walls and ceilings of their majestic homes. Today murals are still painted onto walls however modern wallpapers and printers have brought a whole new aspect for the mural world.

The wide offering of murals from realistic landscapes, visual textures like woods and stones to graffiti are sure to meet everyone’s needs. Sasiwallpaper has an extensive offering of murals and we continue to develop our range.
