Transforming an office setting with a contemporary abstract mural


Here is one of my latest mural projects I worked on in Seattle. The client wanted a colorful contemporary abstract mural for their staff lounge and recreation area. This piece was created on a 16'w x 9'h interior wall using acrylic and aerosol. The colors that I worked with were from the clients branded color palette and I used layering and shading techniques to create an optical illusion of depth.




The client is a cutting edge gene therapeutics research company using RNA techologies. Keeping this in mind during the design phase I integrated symbolic images like a polypeptide chain and hexagonal shapes to symbolize chemical structures. Being a muralist and not a scientist, there were artistic liberties taken on the symbols within the design which I feel can be enjoyed by both scientist and laymen alike. I enjoyed the challenge and creativity involved in this commission and feel that the piece really transforms the space creating a vibrancy and livliness that the employees can enjoy when they are taking a break from their work.
