Mural painting is defined as any painting or artwork that is directly applied on permanent surfaces such as walls, ceilings, and buildings. The term “mural” comes from the Latin word “murus,” which translates to the wall. Mural painting has existed for centuries, even dating back to the prehistoric times, in one way or another. It can be traced back to 200,000 B.C. when Modern Man appeared for the first time in Africa. From there, he migrated to Asia and Europe after 100,000 B.C. Signs of the first mural paintings can be seen in the Lascaux Grottoes cave paintings in southern France to the Bhimbetka cave paintings found in India.
Over the years, mural painting developed as a legitimate form of art and became extremely popular in regions such as Europe and India. Today, some of the most famous artworks are mural paintings, including paintings on the Sistine Chapel ceiling done by Michelangelo.
Mural painting has taken a more modern and urban form today too. Some well-known urban mural paintings include Girl with Balloon by Banksy (London, UK), Factory Worker by Vhils (Hong Kong), and Faith in Women by Lady Pink (USA).
Mural painting can be easily identified because they are artworks done on walls, ceilings, and other permanent surfaces. But apart from this, they also have certain characteristics that make it easy to identify them.
For instance, murals usually have a socio-cultural significance. They may depict the activities of a certain civilization, such as religious figures or rituals, or they may send political messages and slogans. Sometimes, the artist may choose to depict these in an abstract style. The style of art in a mural painting can be very diverse too, ranging from realism with amazing scale and depth to a more vague and abstract style.
