Client: R House
Location: Miami, FL, United States
Completion date: 2014
Artwork budget: $500
The owners of a business selected my entry for the opportunity to paint a mural on the side of a building facing a courtyard. It is 93 feet long x 15 feet high. I mixed various shades of exterior latex paints before applying it to the wall with paint brushes. Using a garden hose with an attachment, I misted the wet paint to create effects.
The clients wanted an abstract painting for daytime diners in a courtyard to enjoy. During the night, the wall is lit, creating an exciting backdrop for diners or guests at private parties.
The owners supplied all paint, scaffolding, ladders, a long hose and an hydraulic lift. Their artistic vision, collaboration and assistance was tremendous.
