In 2002 we were commissioned to paint a mural for the CDC El Cajon. We were asked to depict something for the rebirth of downtown El Cajon. The inspiration came to us as the Bird of Paradise, out of the ashes rebirth! It was a fun project that gave us a chance to show off our fine art side and do some airbrushing “in plein air”.
We make a ton of signs, banners, wraps, but this was an opportunity to do something that brought beauty into our world. It was painted in an alley way that people walked when going from a parking lot to the theater. I always imagined it would be a great surprise, turning a corner and being greeted by a colorful mural.
Do you an area that needs a fresh look? Maybe something that uplift your store or neighborhood? Give us a call we’d love to help you out!
Ribbon cutting time!
“Man, thats a big wall!”
Bird of Paradise painted for the CDC City of El Cajon in 2002! Part of an overall plan to bring more art and beautify downtown El Cajon. A mural project out and away from the studio, it was a lot of fun and turned out great!
Bird of Paradise mural
We work with some great people and last week had the opportunity to work with the folks at Non Verbal Communications. Their client, the Kona Kai Resort, needed a mural painted behind a metal ship sculpture to match a logo. We were there from 8:30 pm to 11:00 pm to keep us out of the way of the customers. We used stencils and air brushes to create the desired finish of a rough weathered texture. We think it turned out great!
Being a brand new Green Facility…we needed an art mural that fit our interior. So I contacted Tracey at Attention Getters and asked her to meet me to assist with our mural. Tracey brought a team of artists to our dealership and provided 4 options to meet our needs. We chose one and it turned out fantastic.
Toyota of El Cajon
Toyota of El Cajon recently contracted us to design and paint a 15′ tall X 65′ long wall mural with Toyota sayings. They just opened their new location on Arnele Street and have the distinction of being the first LEED Certified building in El Cajon, CA. LEED stands for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design. It is a third-party certification program and nationally accepted benchmark for the design, construction, and operation of high performance green buildings, according to the U.S. Green Building Council. We naturally chose to use paints with no toxic fumes, or low VOC for the mural.
We designed the mural to compliment the other murals and decor they have in the newly designed building. The entire facility is quite impressive with numerous factoids explaining how energy efficient it is. Children will love to play on the life size pirate ship in the showroom area.
The wall mural is in an area where new owners pick up the keys to their car and drive off. It took three artists over four days to prep, paint, and complete the work on the mural. We are happy to be part of keeping their building “green.” The finished mural looks great!
