Trompe L’oeil Mural Paintings Performed by Elena Rekord

It is not easy to evaluate the painting and murals in the Interior. Why? Everything is simple and at the same time difficult. It is impossible to put together the cost of paints, time expenditures so as to name the final estimate. Some types of so-called decorative mural paintings do not worth even the funds spent on materials. However, the masterwork not only decorates the room, but also worth quite expensive, since it is performed skilfully, underlines the selected style of decoration, or solves structural problems.

To illustrate this, let’s consider the works of the artist Elena Rekord. Each mural painting is unique. Because she uses her own style, it is not possible to copy or replicate her mural paintings. Analyzing the painting, you can say for sure: the technique is at the high level: the details are realistic, the background is drawn in easily and naturally.

The grape-vine motif was often used in decoration of the palaces of the Renaissance era. In our case, mural paintings in the Interior include imitation of wooden elements, which create a completely different reality. At the same time, wall mural paintings are made in a different manner: vines entwist architectural elements and perspective background, that has allowed shifting attention from ventilation ducts in a decorative element.

The distinctive feature of the works can be called the technique of creating realistic mural paintings with floristics. Elena Rekord masterfully paints flowers. The painting technique was perfected over the years, halftones are subtly drawn in, in fact, a three-dimensional space is created that becomes alive, flexible. This is not simply a bouquet, but masterful creation of a “flowerbed” in space.

Trompe l’oeil mural painting with a little elve cannot be called a cartoon illustration, rather we can say: the space is so alive that creates the illusion of a fairy tale. Leaves, flowers, while adding volume, expand space of the room, give lightness. Such mural paintings can freshen up a dark room. It is worth pointing out that this is not just artistic imitation of flora. Elena Rekord creates exactly the illusionistic mural paintings, which acquire the effect of three-dimensional space.

Three-dimensional Trompe l’oeil painting in the Neo-Classic style for decoration of the wall

If you draw attention to the technique of mural paintings, then it becomes clear that the artist creates multi-layered drawing: first the background is created, and then geometric details, shades and half-shades are overlapped, then flowers, wild grapes are subtly drawn in. Thus, the mural painting becomes lively and is perfectly visible from different points. On close inspection, the depth of the perspective is visible, it is as if covered by light film of fog, the shadows create a realistic illusion of space.

Trompe l’oeil mural paintings turn stucco moldings into advantage in an interesting manner. In this case, the brightly colored flowers distract attention from plaster structures, but not get out of the general context of the design.

At first glance it may seem that the Trompe l’oeil paintings on the wall are much like Zhostovo paintings, decorative Khokhloma paintings, however it is worth to note that there are significant differences. These techniques do not imply building a three-dimensional perspective and are not charged with a task to change the space. With all due respect, this is a trend for decoration of Interior items, but not of rooms, and differs by aggressive color palette.

Trompe l’oeil mural painting is a technique for creating a new reality. Just as it is difficult to find the same two flowers or trees, so, when decorating various projects, the artist, in fact, creates the own proper world of the housing. To understand the basic principles and features of decoration, one can familiarize with the book of Omar Calabrese “The Art of Trompe L’oeil”, which contains studies of the origins, transformation and characteristics of this technique. But in conclusion, we would like to point out that such mural paintings in the Classic-style Interior have created the illusion of presence, since they completely correspond to the principles of Trompe l’oeil: creating depth, accurate detail drawing of the foreground and fine, three-dimensional drawing of the parts.
