Decorative Painting
Painting this salon's downtown location was the result of combining many sources of inspiration - pulling from numerous pages of photos of weathered classic Italian and Baroque architecture, current trendy fashion magazine spreads at the time, the personal experiences of owner Christine and her recent travels to Venice, my own experiences of visual art in London, Brussels and Munich coupled with a love of Moroccan colors and ambiance, this project incorporated faux finishes, painted poetry, mirror chip mosaic panels, free form glittering plaster swirls, a verse in Arabic, phrases in English, Spanish, Russian, Chinese, French, German, and more. The finished salon was truly inspired, absolutely gorgeous, and one of my favourite projects.
