Murals

A mural is created by painting directly on a wall (or walls) of a building or even a cave. They represent, in a sense, the first human artistic manifestation. Prehistoric rupestral art (drawings on rocks) and parietal art (drawings on cave walls) are good examples.

A universal art, murals developed simultaneously at four corners of the globe throughout the eras. Various techniques and movements connected with murals equally came into being over the course of time: from frescoes to muralism and even graffiti. This form of art, as an extension of architecture, can thus take on several different forms.
