About my canvas paintings and my experience as a painter

How to contact the painter

While I can paint wall murals in any style, my specialization is in Trompe L'oeil. This is the art of making what is not real seem real. Blank walls come to life as large windows looking out into the world, ornaments seem to adorn walls but only upon closer inspection are simply painted on. Below are just a few examples of what can be done to beautify and give life to your restaurant, office, home or any other room.

This trompe l'oiel was painted on canvas for Lateral Passage for the INDEX Exhibition in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. Dimensions: 2m x 3m

Here is a living room area with two trompe l'oeil murals painted inside archways.

Detail of each archway

This is a Trompe l'oeil painted behind a bar counter of a water front home in Florida.

The painting shows as if there is a hole in the wall and you can see a beautiful sunset in the distance.

This is a full and complete wall painted in oil. Although it appears that this is an archway leading onto a beautiful garden with statues on either side, it is all in fact a flat wall.

Nothing is real, everything is painted. A perfect example of trompe l'oeil.

THESE TROMPE L'OEIL PAINTINGS ARE ON REMOVABLE PANELS

While both pictures appear to have depth and the one seems to be a recess in a marble wall in which a statue is displayed, and the other is a window overlooking a tranquil meadow, these pieces are in fact painted on a completely flat board / canvas!

They can be hung like paintings or used as part of a wall panel.
