Murals, Trompe L’oeil and Paint Effects
Mel Holmes is a highly regarded mural artist who specialises in bespoke wall murals, trompe l’oeil, decorative paint effects and portraiture.
His mural commissions have taken him throughout the UK, Europe, the Middle East, Bermuda and Asia. As an experienced muralist, his projects have included large scale shopping malls, hotels, restaurants and numerous private houses.
A top mural artist, Mel’s skills in the technique of marouflage (painting on canvas to be applied to walls) allow very large murals to be completed in the studio, eliminating time and disturbance on location . With this method the client can be kept up to date with the development of the painting via images and email.
As well as murals and trompe l’oeil, Mel also offers a full range of specialist paint finishing effects including wood graining, marbling, colour washes, stoneblocking and gilding.
