Mural

A mural is any piece of artwork painted or applied directly on a wall, ceiling or other large permanent surface. Mural painting is inherently different from all other forms of pictorial art in that it is organically connected with architecture. The use of colour, design, and thematic treatment can radically alter the sensation of spatial proportions of the building; in this sense mural is the only form of painting that is truly three-dimensional, since it modifies and partakes of a given space, or more simple to understand the given space are harmoniously incorporated into the picture. They are presumed to be the oldest human art form, as cave paintings at numerous ancient human settlements suggest, and can be found all over the world.
