About This Artist
My name is Jan, and I’ve been a muralist working in the public space for over a decade. I really value and take a lot of pride in my work, and I always want to make sure that work is of the best possible standard I can achieve. When working with clients, I’ll interpret the prompts that I’m given (themes, subject, branding, aesthetic) aiming to create a lively, playful, detailed, and engaging composition that meets both the client’s needs, the artists, and the needs and interest of the viewer.
Murals I am most interested in painting will depict one or two figures/portraits. I’m very excited by the process of storytelling and the idea of the mural featuring a single protagonist. I feel this offers a lot of opportunity for clients to include their vision within that protagonist, but also helps me to visually celebrate themes like adventure, independence, and wonder. Within my work, I also focus on embellishments and adornments to the figures to elaborate on the content within the work. That being said, I am also open to projects that do not exist within this structure.
In an ideal working relationship, there is back and forth between the client and the artist to ensure both parties needs are met. An ecosystem of trust and openness is important to make sure I am able to deliver the best possible project that highlights the client’s vision, and acts as an engaging mural that will last for years.
