Melita

Melita is an Adelaide based artist who has been creating murals since 2002, after completing a Bachelor of Visual Arts at the University of South Australia. During that time she has also completed various courses in airbrushing, painting applications and technique and colour consulting.

Melita first began her mural business in Queensland but has since returned to Adelaide where she has continued to uniquely transform private homes, child care centres, kindergartens, play cafe's, businesses, shopfronts, sheds and furniture.

Murals can transform dull walls into bright welcoming features that are fun and inspire imagination!

Murals

A mural is any piece of artwork painted or applied directly on a wall, ceiling or other large permanent surface. A distinguishing characteristic of mural painting is that the architectural elements of the given space are harmoniously incorporated into the picture.

Some wall paintings are painted on large canvases, which are then attached to the wall (e.g., with marouflage). Whether these works can be accurately called "murals" is a subject of some controversy in the art world, but the technique has been in common use since the late 19th century.
