Mediterranean Kitchen by Mui-Ling Teh

Currently unavailable for purchase

Available to buy on…

One day while I was painting a gym mural during high school, a visitor passed by and became interested in my work. She offered me a job for the summer to paint a mural in her house. She requested a mural for her kitchen of a Mediterranean scene being overlooked from a balcony. By doing so, the family can enjoy their meals and feel as though they are eating on top of an outdoor balcony looking over a beautiful scenery (although it isn’t evident here, but I attempted to make the color of the balcony similar to the kitchen floor).

The time frame for this project was relatively short: about 2 or 3 weeks. I drew the mural entirely free hand from a composite of several posters selected beforehand. I also visited this mural again; with the permission of my client, after I finished my first year. Unlike with the gym mural (see below), it was very nice to see this one still in good condition.

Medium: Acrylic paints over a semi-glossed painted plaster wall…

The wall size was about 13 × 7.5 ft.

    I love how you did the balcony—wonderful tromp l’oeil. This is really special. I bet your clients love it every day!

  • Thank you very much F.A. Moore. I’ve only ever revisited once, and know then it still looked great.
