It was an honour to paint this wall mural of the BC Parliament Buildings for the BC Parliamentary Dining Room. My clients wanted a bright stylized artwork that almost burned their eyeballs with colour and creativity!
My artistic vision for painting a wall mural of the BC Parliament Buildings used bright warm and cool colours to give the effect of having the scene glowing. The structure and shapes of the Government House escaped their own walled in spaces by having their lines and colour seep into the sky like a transparent aura.
The centre of the main block of the BC Parliament Buildings holds a statue of Captain George Vancouver with gold leaf. I painted the main legislative dome with a layered art deco style that emits lines and shapes in this Victoria public mural.
I painted warm yellow ochre sun light illuminating the Legislative Assembly of British Columbia to contrast the cool blue windows in this corner of the Baroque building. As a Victoria, BC mural artist it was a great experience to paint this iconic BC landmark building that’s just down the road from my studio.
Somewhere inside this Victoria, BC mural members of the Legislative Assembly or MLAs are shaping the future of BC through debate and lawmaking. Because this BC mural is my creation, the MLA’s inside it are all behaving themselves in a showcase of exemplary respect and morality.
Branches from a cedar tree are painted with loose courses of colour in large bright blue and green painterly brush strokes. The BC Parliament Buildings contrast the impressionist cedar tree with structure and straight lines in the mural.
A bright art deco stylized rhododendron bush literally exudes it’s bright magenta colour into the air around the Legislative Assembly of British Columbia in this acrylic wall mural.
A close up of this Victoria mural shows a politician, perhaps the Premiere of British Columbia, on the front steps of the BC Government House trying to go to work. Conan the Barbarian, ever present in my murals, is taking his job for the day as a security guard to seriously and will not let the Premiere inside. The politician has to explain and plead his case to enter.
