If you want to hire a mural artist, here is the typical process.
In most cases, a site visit is organized after an initial inquiry and a short conversation about a potential commission. During the site visit, ideas may be investigated further, and cost estimates can be evaluated. (I take measurements of everything when I am conducting the site survey for the proposed mural. This includes the heights of the walls, the skirting, the location of power-points and light switches, furniture, and windows, among other things. All of these things can have an impact on how the mural needs to be designed.)
The mural designer then presents a drawing to the client, either in person or via email. Upon the client’s approval of the design and estimate, a deposit is paid, and the project is hand-painted in the studio. (My customers usually get a scaled color concept drawing from me, so they can see exactly what I have in mind for their projects (a picture paints a thousand words).
The ability of the customer to have a constructive influence on the formulation of the design idea is simplified as a result of this. It is much simpler for me to make changes to the mural at this point, when I am standing on the ground, rather than when I am standing on a ladder in the middle of painting the mural, which is why I believe that this is a really valuable approach.)
Once it is complete, it is transported, and the mural design installs it by adhering a painted canvas to a wall or ceiling using the traditional method of application known as marouflage. The mural designer is able to complete huge and difficult projects by using this strategy, which allows him/her to avoid the disruptions associated with working on site.
Some projects are painted entirely on location, but the mural designer typically recommends that clients accept the more convenient studio or camouflage option whenever it is possible. This option is proven to be less disruptive; it is easier for all parties involved; and as a result, it takes less time to produce the artwork, which in turn translates into lower costs for the client.
The client is invited to the studio at various stages of the process, from the preliminary drawing to the finished artwork, in order to evaluate the development of the commission first-hand. Alternatively, the client can be kept up to date on the proceedings through the regular transmission of images.
In most cases, the deposit is one-third of the whole price. An additional third of the total cost is paid in the form of an interim payment at around the midway point of the project. After the piece of artwork has been completed, hung, and varnished with a varnish that is washable and long-lasting, the final equilibrium is achieved.
