Hong Kong, June 2017
Hello and welcome to this website.
My contemporary, professional
mural work should be especially interesting for interior designers and architects and their clients, to all owner/management of businesses at industrial
sites and in commercial spaces. I offer my work to middle to high-end corporate business office complexes.
Naturally I can commissioned by schools both public and private and any type of health-care
facility. Since 1990 I have completed work for, and in, a diversity of locations on three continents. Entrance ways, lobbies, waiting rooms, stairwells, corridors...I have done nearly all areas of most types buildings
Il give free pricing consultation.
Large and smaller-scale wall picturing or architectural murals:
Following this Home Page you will first see 6 pages picturing a small selection of large and smaller scale architectural wall paintings completed in Europe where I first began 1990, then during a 13 year period back in my home country USA and now since 2008 on Taiwan, Vietnam, very cheifly on mainland China and here in Hong Kong where I now reside.
After the first 6 pages of wall paintings there are 2 pages describing and picturing an unique method of a European inspired colour designing called lazure painting. In this mastered craft I use an imported professional grade 100% natural paint medium on most jobs depending, for example, on weathering conditions.
Fees for wallpaintings start at 5,000-10,000 HKD or about 4,500-9,000 Chinese RMB. All art commission charges depend on location, locale conditions and scope of the project
and lastly complexity of design. Charges for art materials are all included in the pricing.
Generally all preparation costs and labor to prepare wall surfaces would be at client expense.
On this Home Page please follow the many images down to where I write at the very bottom of the page a more descriptive welcoming.
Note that there are more than 20 pages to this self-built website. For viewing on PC's click MORE at the top right...and on hand-held phones click MENU.

My main area of specialization is in contemporary, large to small-scale wall paintings for building environments. In large-scale painting this is sometimes called 'monumental painting'.
Wall paintings can be created non-figurative/non-representational meaning freely-improvisational...or representational, showing recogizable images. On occasion I do signage for businesses as well.
In each case the design work is conceived to further enhance beauty and culture
in our world and present an artform which has universal appeal...a form of art which speaks to the Universal Human of all peoples. This would then naturally be an art form which would, in its practical dimension, enhance the function of the immediate building
environment. So...to enhance the esthetic/visual appearance as well as the purpose of the space.
In my mural
designing of non-figurative/non-representational, free-improvisational work, these are created out of an artistic process of direct 'artistic play'. This means that I have no prior picture-concept in mind but from the heart, 'imagine forth' an esthetic solution
suited for each given situation taking into account the factors of architectural elements and lighting factors.
pre-built structures this can sometimes become a complete qualitative transformation of an utterly lifeless building space embuing beauty with fresh new life and energy. Or in early design stages, say together in collaboration with interior designers, architects
or naturally directly with the business or home owner/apartment dwellers. a completely new and refreshing color-to-form solution can be achieved.
contemporary interior colour design I also offer an unique, painterly method called the European inspired LAZURE PAINTING which is very new in the Asian market in any wider professional use. I can say with complete confidence that I am the only master-professional
today in Asia with this skill acheived over the past 27 years. See the page 'Lazure Painting'.
In my artistic painting work, and whenever possible, I utilize
a water-based, 100% all natural paint medium comprised of plant resins, beeswax and fillers. This should be of importance for all who demand completely safe, non-toxic paints which are healthy for children,
adults and the environment. These are comprised of zero...NO...synthetic, allergy affecting, harsh-chemical ingredients. This is a professional-grade paint medium imported from Europe. This is a medium produced by means of 'soft-chemistry'...technology with
deliberate conscience intent.
On these first few pages you will see a selection of my work begun in Europe 1990. Then there are examples completed in USA
during a 13 year period and now in China and a couple other Asian countries these past since 2008. Further pages on this site show my smaller-scale studio work in drawing, canvas paintings, pastels and sculpture.
I welcome all inquires including any project you might consider, pricing, and my time availablity. In many cases and within reason, I am open to negotiating my work fees.
Thank you for your visit to this site. John.
