Or more accurately a series of murals done throughout the building over the course of a months or so. Cutting the stencils actually took longer than to paint but that’s part of the process. Now I’ve got a series of motifs to use indefinitely or at least until the material breaks down.
The beauty of using metallic paints is that some murals are only really visible at certain angles or times of day. It requires repeat views, making it a process of gradual discovery.
I have been painting and decorating the hallway for a few days in preparation for a mural. All of the colours except the yellow were mixed out of the dark brown, it worked particularly well in the stairwell. The images will be created using stencils and the cutting process has definitely been the most labor intensive part of this project.
A bit more decoration in another part of Brick City Bar, these were based on some of my favourite musicians. And some, like Bjork, Nina Simone and Dave Graney, were especially difficult. This has been a really fun little project which may continue over the next few months 😃👌🏻🎨
