Illumination Wall Art painted another mural for the young tennis superstar Emma Raducanu. Emma recently won the US Open at the age of 18. We paid tribute to her by painting her iconic red and blue Nike outfit and bright yellow visor headband. I also added a tennis ball along the bottom of the wall.
With Stan being such a huge celebrity and having an iconic look, it’s no wonder Bish Vegas finds him so inspirational. With Stan’s iconic bowler hat and fantastically expressive face, I knew he would be a great subject to paint on a huge scale.
The walls are almost alive with colour. Many of the pieces have children in mind and follow a loose botanical nature theme that act as a background for lots of cartoons like Pokemon and cartoon bees. However, toward the middle of the alleyway you can see some big graffiti pieces. These feature a good mix of styles from the several vastly different artists. That just works with the ramshackle wall textures and the efforts of the young kids who were desperate to help.
My contribution to #shildoninmotion is on the platform walls. The almost twenty eight meter long ramp wall and the adjacent bridge mural depicts images including George Stephenson’s Locomotion 1. However, the mural also features cogs, gears, chevrons, eyes and the ingenious lightbulb.
Starting illumination Wall Art almost ten years ago, I have painted hundreds of kids bedroom wall murals. With kids being kids and trends changing over the years I think I have covered lots of styles and genres.
Due to the sudden and tragic death of Chadwick Boseman in November 2020, Nathan thought it would be a fitting tribute to the star of Black Panther by having a Black Panther Mural on the wall of his home gym.
As an artist that works in the realm of large scale wall art, I have to constantly question where the line is between graffiti art and vandalism. For Illumination Wall Art, I am given consent from the owners.
However, when it comes to the artwork that an artist is passionate about where do we draw the line?
A mural is simply a piece of art that is painted directly on a wall in either a public or private space. There are no restrictions when it comes to the media of mural art. The types of media types used are paint, spray paint, airbrush paint amongst many other media too. With murals on walls, usually, the artist incorporates elements of the structures of the surfaces they’re painting. For example, if the wall features a window, the artist will usually find a way of making this element seamlessly integrated with the mural itself.

For those of us lucky enough to have large shop fronts and windows, the possibilities to catch the eye of potential customers is a great way to generate business. However, with everyone competing for business in this very turbulent time, getting your brand identity out there quickly and professionally can be difficult and the question must be asked.
2020 has been challenginging for all of us to say the least, but with this huge challenge has come some very sweet rewards. During the lockdown I have had to change the way we do things a little bit due to social distancing laws. This means that my large-scale mural work in homes has had to be limited so as not to mix with too many people on consultations and during mural painting.
