Why choosing Figurative Murals?
These murals are featuring people, faces, the human body in all its forms. In the past Gabrielle did murals for customers who wanted to have a memory for example of their children. Sometimes people fit into a mural and make it more alive or a special scene is created to show a certain emotion or profession.
Gabrielle has done several murals where she had to add people to the scene, so the mural with Europe’s first ballerina Madame de Camargo. The ballerina was originally painted by French Master painter Nicholas Lancret in the 17th century.
Another figurative mural was for a the company Personal Court Reporters. They built their office building and had to add some art so they found Gabrielle, and we decided to do a mural in the lobby of an antique courtroom with a court reporter working on one of this old court reporting machines that were used at that time.
Figurative murals are looking good when done right. The muralist has to know how to paint the human body otherwise it looks wrong. Gabrielle is also commissioning portraits.
