Inspirational Mural Artists

An opportunity to participate in a mural project for a local library has sprung up. I will have about about month to come up with a proposal. To give me some motivation, I have been spending time looking over pictures of various murals by some favorite artists of the past, such as John Singer Sargent, Frank Brangwyn, Dean Cornwell, and Maxfield Parrish. It’s interesting to see how in some cases they adapted their style to accommodate this different format. Even the murals by the Latin artists, such as Orozco and Rivera, share some similarities in the use of dynamic shapes. Anyway, I thought I would share some of the images I have found.
