MURALS Inc. offers a broad overview of artists and their expertise when you are looking for a suitable wall-, ceiling, or floor painting for both the interior and the exterior. We are eager to make an appointment if you want to find out more about the working of MURALS Inc.
We would prefer to meet at your location. However, it is also possible to meet at MURALS Inc. THE GALLERY at the geographical center of Rotterdam.
During this conversation, we would like to hear your preferences, what matters to you, and which location you are considering for a mural. At this point, we will review the range of possibilities and options.
In consultation, we will pick the most fitting visual artist for the particular spot, depending on your wishes, location, and architectural space. In case you cannot decide right away, there is a possibility to order three conceptual design for a standard fee. For a sound overview, there is the possibility to visit some studios.
Once we know the preferred artist and space, we will issue a quotation including the timetable, supply conditions, and budget.
The artist will present the final design once more for the last review. Subsequently, the approved design will be executed at the location. The order will be performed by the artist or an external party, depending on the assignment. Festivities and PR activities could accompany the delivery. For more information, see ‘Festive Revealing’.
You came to the right place if you are looking for a mural for the interior or the exterior for your company or home. Also for institutions or (semi) public spaces we could be of service.
We present a broad range of contemporary murals like post graffiti, machine painting, lettering, text-based art, supergraphics, freestyle painting, deconstructie, postfuturism, public murals, concrete art. Some of the artists from our database have realized monumental outdoor projects. With peace of mind, you can leave the entire supervision of large-scale assignments to us.
MURALS Inc. works with artists who – more than the average – delve into the social backgrounds of the place or the entire building where the paintings will be applied. Employees, visitors or residents are assigned a role in the realization of the mural(s) or become participants in the history of the constitution in the form of annotations in book form. We, or the relevant artists themselves, can tell you all about it.
Everywhere. It is almost hard to grasp, but a mural will find its way. By choosing the right artist for the right place, a meaningless space will transform into a spatial experience.
Murals are a specific form of art which reflects a strong continuation of architecture and is capable of accomplishing a radically different impact because of its size in comparison to paintings, photographs, or sculpture. A mural placed at the right spot contributes to its architecture, a vital addition to its spatial appearance.
The price for a wall painting depends on some factors. The size of the work, the accessibility of the location, the required equipment and the extent of the artist’s fame partly determines the rate. Furthermore, the execution technique and execution time also determine its price. An indicative cost for an average mural starts at approx. € 4000, –
An exception to the rule is Andrea Radai’s work; the starting price is € 450,- She makes miniature murals using oil paint in which the smallest size starts at 6 x 8 cm.
Prominent galleries, presentation-institutions, museums, art initiatives, interesting ad-hoc locations and other venues that desire temporary murals, can contact MURALS Inc. We use a significantly lower rate for temporary murals compared to the permanent ones. The prices of temporary murals are calculated in line with other standards and are considerably lower than permanent murals.
We work according to the guidelines of The National General Terms and Conditions for Art Assignments. You will find these conditions in the contract that we will draw up with you but limits the essentials specifically for assignments through MURALS Inc.
LECTURES & WORKSHOPS
Under the name ‘WALL TALKS’ Marleen van Wijngaarden, founder of MURALS Inc., holds lectures on murals. These lectures focus on specific subjects. Both the history of murals and all contemporary expressions are so rich in meaning and say so much about the time in which they were created that one lecture never will suffice.
If you, as a company, policymaker, elementary school, university, cultural institution or otherwise, would like a lecture on murals in general or on a specific component, please contact THE GALLERY >> firstname.lastname@example.org
If desired, exceptional workshops can be initiated possibly in combination with the lectures.
Workshops and lectures can be organized at either your location or at MURALS Inc. THE GALLERY
Commissioning a mural is a special occasion and so is the initiation. If it pleases you, we will make sure to provide a festive revealing of your mural. Options are a beautifully designed invitation, an organic catering, wine tasting, oyster bar, exciting lectures, a high tea, or anything else that would make it even more special occasion. These options are all subject to consultation.
