Yup! You heard us. Air brush paintings and murals as part of your home improvement plan is one of the most creative ways that you can express yourself and declare your home as your personal part of the world. Interestingly, they’re hardly used – falling second to plain white drywall, wallpaper, or textured plaster. This is an unfortunate position because nothing carves out a home’s personality like airbrush paintings and murals do.
Perhaps the reason why most choose things like bland Drywall, wallpaper, or textured wall covering is that people fear they may devalue the current (or future resale) value of a home. They may mistakenly equate artwork for defacement, like graffiti for example. The fact is, we need to break out of this mode of thinking and understand that humans aren’t the only ones with personalities. Homes have them too and if you’ve ever visited a well-designed home that filled your mind with pleasing feelings and thoughts, then you understand the personality phenomena that we’re talking about!
Photographs hung on a wall are a good start to giving a home a personality. After all, they rather paint a picture of all that give the walls their stories to tell. But when a family moves, so do the photos and the poor walls are then left bare and virtually lifeless. Walls covered with airbrush paintings and murals however never lose their luster and vitality. For these are walls that can exhibit the same behavioral, emotional and mental characteristics that we do!
An airbrush painting is artwork created by sprayed paint (unlike brushed paint) and a mural is a painting that is applied to a wall surface (not a canvas). Although both of these art forms haven’t exactly made it into the artwork hall of fame, each has a unique history. Murals for example, have existed since man first painted animals and plants on the walls of caves. Airbrush painting however, is comparably new, but the result of both can be as breath taking as your average Michaelangelo masterpiece. The difference between the two is how the artwork is applied. An airbrush painting is made with sprayed paint, while mural art is made with paint painted a wall. Obviously, mural art can be an airbrush painting.
A home with airbrush paintings and murals is used to create an atmosphere the same way that decorative wallpaper does. The images in the painting suggest moods to experience and create a scene that in turn, serves as a portal for a traveling imagination. It’s most applicable for homes whose owners plan on living in the area for a long time. A short residency doesn’t really give occupants enough time to enjoy the benefits of this art form – nor does it accurately reflect the tastes of future occupants. But if you plan on living in your home for years to come, and you want your home to truly express itself, then consider having a few airbrush paintings and murals installed into your home.
