Commercial artist who specializes
in hand-painting large mural works in the Houston, area gets called to paint
Architectural Graphics, art murals large signage. Whatever you call them they
make a business stand out from the surrounding, potential competition.
The option is available to most
business if the exterior texture wall allows it.
We have painted the exterior graphics on block and brick walls, stucco,
metal and wood and hardy plank. We have worked on just about any surface, says
muralist, Ray Gatica.
We have been contracted to work
with architects, interior designers, private and commercial clients. Usually the
client provides the design and we take it from there.
I am also available to help the client with designing. Sometimes they
provide paint chips for the colors or allow me to handle that part too. Most of
the time, they feel confidence in our experience and simply allow me to use my
judgment, which they trust.
Our latest project of this kind
was for a past client, Buffalo Exchange, in Houston. While relocating their
business here in Houston to a new location, they emailed me the multicolor-
chevron design and asked us if it was something we could do for them. I assured
them that it could be done.
The client provided the design
and we took it from there to create the above colorful, stimulating
architectural graphic. The brick wall dimensions were 15 Ft. high X 92 Ft. in
Some if the things we have
painted on business buildings are 15 Ft. Tall Lettering that speeded out to span
of about 100 feet. The challenging
part for this project was sizing up the letters and keeping them true to the
font style. For this I still use the old over-head projector with the black and
white transparencies. See this project at the following link.
Another thing along this line was
hand painted large leaf pattern on an exterior of a Federal
Credit building in Katy TX. The same overhead projector method was used to
layout the leaf patterns which varied in size from 7-8 to 17 feet in individual
leaf size. The building height was 15 feet.
You can see this project here. Go
to see samples of the above works. The
client was very pleased. In this case I never made contact with the client we
just communicated over the phone and email.
This article is mostly for the
exterior architectural graphics we have also been hired to do an array of
interior mural graphics for a variety of schools, gyms and other businesses with
similar success. Go
to see samples of murals and graphics done at schools around the Houston area.
Even though as muralist, we have
been creating these hand-painted murals and graphics for over thirty years I
still find each project exciting with its own challenges and processes. I
especially enjoy bringing the clients’ ideas and visions to life and
ultimately enjoy seeing the smile on their faces when they see the project
completed and finalized and, is satisfactory to them.
“It surprises me that more
businesses do not do more of these types of exciting exterior architectural
graphics around the city”, says, Gatica, It would help their business
stand-out from the crowded surrounding businesses, landscape.
