Murals by Chicago Artist Darin Knupp

Darin paints both interior and exterior murals, all of which will be painted with acrylics. He will come to you and give free estimates, often needing to see the space where the mural will be painted. Murals can range greatly in size and usually determined by the amount of space available. The artist will discuss subject matter and dimensions of the mural and then start designing layout and creating sketches. When the artist has several ideas to show you, a meeting will be scheduled. Of course consulting by phone or email is convenient when unable to meet in person. Pricing for a mural is charged by square footage.
