Mural Artist, Trompe L’oeil and Paint Effects – Mel Holmes
Mel Holmes is a highly regarded mural artist who specialises in hand painted wall murals, feature ceiling murals, trompe l’oeil effects and decorative paint finishes.
Mel is based in Sheffield and works throughout the UK. Mural commissions have also taken him throughout Europe, the Middle east, Asia and North America. With over 30 years experience as a mural artist, his projects have included large scale shopping malls, hotels, restaurants, public spaces and numerous private houses. His work has been seen on BBC television, Channel 4, and has been featured in The Times, The Daily Mail and The Guardian. Radio interviews include BBC Radio Derby and BBC Radio 4.
Mel’s mastery of the technique of ‘marouflage’ (painting on canvas and installing onto walls) allows even the largest of murals to be painted in his studio and installed quickly, efficiently and in a cost effective manner. With this method, clients can be kept up to date with the development of the painting via images, emails or studio visits as the painting progresses. Alternatively, Mel can work directly onto walls on site.
