Trompe-l’oeil Mural at The Embassy House in Palm Coast Florida

Check out the photos of our trompe-l’oeil mural of cherubs on a vaulted ceiling at The Embassy House. We painted this vaulted ceiling a couple of years ago while the home was being renovated by the owners.


The owners asked for a classical style mural of cherubs (baby angels) flying among the clouds as they hold flowers in their hands. The mural took us a total of 6 weeks to complete on a 30 foot high scaffold that covered the entire space. The ocean front home also known as The Embassy House is located in beautiful Palm Coast, Florida. Upon arriving at the estate we were greeted by a large fountain at the center of a private lake on the property. The Embassy House is 14,000 square feet with 7 bedrooms and once housed president Ronald Reagan during his stay in Florida. The entire foyer measures 20′ x 30′ and is bordered by a corridor that hovers over the first floor. Above the foyer is a 30′ high vaulted ceiling with a stunning glass chandelier. The home has beautiful designed details such as a stain glass double doors, antique velvet furnishings and rococo mirrors.

We began this mural by first mixing our own custom colors for the cherubs and clouds. As we worked the nights away the artwork began to come to life. The cherubs are holding large flowers in their hands as they hover over the foyer. The trompe-l-oeil mural defies perception as it gives the illusion of the an open glass ceiling exposing the sky. For our finishing details we added a few white doves carrying ribbons with the names of the family members and a glowing emblem. These thoughtful details gave the mural a more personal touch. The Embassy House has been one of our favorite murals painted thus far. The artwork really stands out in the space and creates an awe inspiring experience for all those who visit.

As artists we feel very fortunate to be able to create these works for clients and really challenge our skills. This cherub mural has an amazing feel about it, the baby angels greet visitors with a peaceful and gentle welcome. We were happy to collaborate with the owner on all details and really create an amazing experience in the home.

Little-Haiti-Mural-Miami

Artists help preserve culture of the area with Little Haiti Mural Project

We were interviewed by The Miami Times regarding our mural artwork in Little Haiti Miami. Little Haiti is an area in Miami that is currently facing the edging and emerging interest by developers. Our mural was created in collaboration with a community organization seeking to highlight the areas culture of Haitan descendants. Below is a link to the full article and some excerpts from our interview. Enjoy!


https://www.miamitimesonline.com/lifestyles/the-little-haiti-mural-project/article_b89695c6-8f49-11e8-9d41-c763a616f36e.html

Some say that Little Haiti is turning into an extended version of Wynwood. With its vibrant native culture, art and murals, and ethnic restaurants, this part of Lemon City is emulating many of the positive traits that abound in Wynwood. But all the positive attention in the neighborhood is enticing some unwanted attention from outside forces.

Much like what happened in Wynwood and its graffiti scene, big-brand developers salivate at the idea of using the desired, sturdy and vacant land of Little Haiti to establish a foundation and foster their vision of growth and development for the future.

Promises of change can impact the community in a negative way, and these residents, business owners and artists know it. Little Haiti has places that exhibit great art from many recognizable names that bring in tourist dollars. But that is countered by developers, whose goal is to renovate the area without accounting for the resident’s needs and culture.

Artists and proponents of art are using their voices and skills to consolidate community interests with developer’s plans of growth. Little Haiti is a lively place imbued with culture and artistic prominence. The community boasts many art studios and galleries, as well as dance classes, public markets and nighttime events. The warehouses, businesses and restaurants serve as canvasses that different artists use to beautify the neighborhoods with different aspects of Haitian and Caribbean culture and folklore. These murals were created by artists who want to improve the community by making art that reflects the roots of the residents therein.

The Color Dreamers is another set of artists who participated in the Little Haiti Mural Project. The duo consists of Ivette Cabrera, longtime Miami resident of Nicaraguan descent, and Amir Shakir, black and born in Louisiana, who’s been living in Miami for the last eight years. Together, they embrace the culture of Little Haiti and reflect it in their art, instead of making art for art’s sake.

“The process of making a mural in Little Haiti is delicate and has to be designed carefully, explained Cabrera. “If we put anything out there that doesn’t relate to their cultural identity, then we are going to change the identity of the whole community,” she said.
“We don’t see development as a negative thing,” Shakir said, “but, the people should know that they can be part of the development and make it about themselves and about the larger picture at the same time.”

Ofir, Delionis, The Color Dreamers and Rivera understand the importance of using art as a vehicle to cement a sense of identity and pride in a neighborhood and its people.

New video release of our murals for Miami Midtown Five Condominiums

We have been busy the past few weeks putting together all of our video clips from our last mural project. We are excited to share our process from start to finish with our fans and clients.

Fourth Mural completed at Miami Midtown 5 Condominiums

Miami Muralists unveil 4th artwork at Midtown Five Condominiums

We just finished our 4th mural installation on the pool deck of Midtown 5 Condominiums pool deck. While painting this mural we added a few artsy flairs of texture, neon and graffiti. The idea was to create a fun vibe while adding a few cool blue hues.

The idea for the mural was to create an interesting mix of luxury and urban life. We came up with a concept that shows an outdoor wall with graffiti that is sliced away to reveal a girl wearing a dress twirling in the wind. We look forward to sharing a short video of the artwork in progress from start to completion.
The pool deck mural measures about 20 feet in width by 12 feet high. If you would like to see the mural you can schedule a private tour with the concierge at Miami Midtown Five Condominiums is located at 125 NE 32nd St, Miami, FL 33137 on the 5th floor pool deck.

Unveil of new condominium murals at Miami Midtown 5

Happy New Year to all! Hope you had an amazing celebration with friends and family. We closed our last year with great new projects and new friends. We tend to split our time between our studio work and murals so also had time to create some sculptural works we will be showcasing shortly.


These murals are located at Midtown Five in Midtown Miami. The theme is contemporary luxury meets Wynwood Graffiti. We used a mix of techniques including fine art paint brush, airbrush, spray paint and stencils. We always take into consideration the level of detail and colors in each artwork we create. With these particular murals we ensured that our spray paint colors weren’t too bright and blended well with the teal blue glass windows.


The three murals located on the 5th floor pool deck had a posterized street art style mixed with just a small section of graffiti to balance the composition. The mix of styles creates a fun variety for viewers with different taste. The wall next to the yoga studio had a mix of airbrush and neon texture giving it that classic Miami glow.  We created a scenery of one of Miami’s oldest graffiti pennant relics, The Marina.


“The theme in these murals was to create something that still appeals to what Miami is made of: sunny weather, high end design, neon lights, arts and culture. It’s a vibrant city that continues to grow and we are more than fortunate to take part in its artistic cultural revolution.“

The importance of driving Miami art culture in luxury living condominiums

Condominium Murals bring art culture to Midtown Miami.

We all know the importance of art in public spaces but what can art do to private living spaces in Miami’s top luxury living condominiums?  We have recently embarked on our latest mural journey in Miami’s thriving Midtown and Design District neighborhood condos.

The Location: 5th Floor Pool Deck Midtown Miami
Total Murals; 3 Large Scale Artworks
Theme: Wynwood meets Design District luxury retail

Our client expressed to us the importance of bringing the essence of Miami’s art culture to its building walls by curating an ongoing artwork installation that merges graffiti culture and high end luxury living. A very interesting mix indeed. We presented a few ideas that included the use of spray paint juxtaposed with stylized hand painted stencil artwork using complimentary colors to match the pool decks exterior.  The current works in progress have attracted new visitors who have been curious about the artwork and intrigued by the mural painting process.

A great way to reignite the street art culture that has made Miami one of the worlds top art mecca it is today, is to bring its iconic wild style graffiti culture to its residents. When we think about the impact that art has had through its decades of styles and artists we wonder what it would have been like to meet the great artists such as Van Gogh, Dali, Picasso, Pollack, Frida Khalo or Diego Rivera. We wonder what it would be like if we could interact with them and understand  their interpretation of color, perspective and light as well as realism and imagination. When we look at art in the sense of the stylistic eras such as abstract,  impressionism, cubism and graffiti then we can begin to understand that art is not just about creating realism but about the current vision and voice of contemporary artists. We often wonder what was the spark that created great cities like Paris and LA, well the answer is simple, it was the contemporary artists who had no boundaries  to their expression. They gave life new meaning, new form, new interpretation and it was through this that many of us found its true beauty and value

Art and murals bring that artistic experience out to the public view where a community can not only interact with it but experiences its magical essence within their luxury living lifestyle.

As artists, sometimes we create art to fit the modern vibe of the pulsating city culture. It brings us together in ways that create special moments and interactions we would not otherwise have. We we can bridge the beauty of art with a unified community we enrich our surroundings. With art in living spaces, developers can now offer an advantage over other condominiums that do not offer an artist experience for its tenants and visitors. Art that captures an artistic moment but lends itself to change embracing an true contemporary artists vision. Graffiti in Miami not only sparked the Wynwood art scene along with an international art fair such as Art Basel at the convention center but it also brought an influx of international developers, residents, and tourists.  Miami toady stands as the undefeated graffiti and international mural  champion.

We hope to keep you update over the next few weeks as we continue our condominium mural in the heart of the city Midtown Miami near Design District.

See you soon! We love making all of our clients vision come to life through our artistic expertise! We treasure the impact it has, the lives it changes and the stories we hear and share from our interactions.

Color Dreamers Muralists embark on new Graffiti Mural in Midtown Miami

Graffiti and Modern Mural Mix at private pool deck in Midtown Miami

We have embarked on a new mural at the condominium located in Miami. The concept is a mix of wild style graffiti prominent on many of Wynwood walls and modern luxury retail of Design District. The mural is located on the private pool deck of the condos located in Midtown Miami 5.

Here’s a preview of the mural in process as we continue to add more murals throughout the condominiums 5th floor that includes a yoga studio, gym and beach style pool.

Graffiti is a great way to mix some urban elements while creating a unique piece of artwork that appeals to the younger professionals. In today’s Miami condominium market its important to stay competitive and add a unique element that not only reflects the culture and vibe of the city but also adds an artful design appeal that is refined in a luxurious way.
