Monumental secular painting

Monumental secular painting. Art painting of ceilings, walls, facades, doors and furniture.

Since the era of Antiquity to the late Renaissance, the monumental painting was one of the main methods of decorating stone, concrete and masonry structures. Today art painting of interiors experiencing its another renaissance. Murals can vivify the interior, give it a unique style, visually transform the space and create a simulation of real objects - the window opening, bay windows, and doors.

One of the main techniques of monumental painting is fresco.

"Buon fresco" - mural paints on wet plaster, which makes the image durable, due to tne content of lime. This technique can be used in a finished room, because the process does not produce any dust and dirt. Fresco is resistant to moisture and light. This technicue can be applied to almost all types of wall surfaces and hold any size.

Alternative fresco - "a secco" - performed on a firm, dry plaster, re-hydrated. It will allow to speed up the pace of work, but the images "a secco" are less durable.

Modern murals are also produced out by oil tools, acrylic, tempera, fluorescent dyes directly on the plaster walls, ceilings or on canvas, paper and other materials contained on surfaces of architectural installations.

Inspite of the fact that monumental art is traditional, the murals, professionally performed by our authors, fit well in both classic and the modern interiors - whether it is compact high-tech, catchy fusion, sustained ethno-style or ornate art deco.
