Figurative and Contemporary murals

People and contemporary murals have many different functions. Some of them are created to inhabit places that would otherwise seem empty; some are to open up areas that block one in. Another important function of murals is to give identity to otherwise uniform spaces.

The Bridget Riley Murals at St. Mary’s Hospital in Paddington. Bridget Riley has designed three floors of striped murals in different colours in public spaces. Consequently, these murals, as well as being beautiful and uplifting, serving another purpose, and that is to identify where you are in the building. Hospitals are confusing places, and the spaces are defined by these murals.

Murals with people

If depictions of people are included in the mural design, it animates the space; it gives it significance and meaning. It can be a conversation piece with relevance to the location or the function of the place. It can act as the backdrop or stage to what is going on in the place where the mural is located. In addition, trompe l’œil is a wonderful way of making spaces seem bigger or making something seem as though it is there when it is not. It can also hide not very beautiful architectural elements, or it can add architectural elements to plain spaces.
