Live Mural Painting with Nora Bruhn
“For me, a muralist, I view my role as the decision maker, the one who decides what story gets amplified. What piece of life do I find important enough so as to spend hours creating something beyond myself; the devotional act of art making. I think living a good life while I’m here in this body and helping others do the same is invaluable.” – Nora Bruhn. More about Nora Bruhn and her work: Please visit link.

The history of murals can be traced back to ancient times when humans first started expressing themselves through art on walls. In prehistoric caves, early humans painted vivid scenes of animals, hunting expeditions, and daily life, leaving behind a rich legacy of storytelling and visual representation. As civilizations developed, murals gained religious and political significance, adorning temples, palaces, and public spaces. In ancient Egypt, murals adorned the walls of tombs and temples, depicting religious rituals, deities, and pharaohs. The Roman Empire boasted elaborate frescoes that adorned the walls of villas and public buildings, showcasing scenes of mythology, history, and daily life. From the grand frescoes of the Italian Renaissance to the socially charged murals of the Mexican Muralism movement, mural art has evolved, reflecting the changing social, cultural, and political landscapes throughout history. Today, murals continue to thrive as a powerful form of artistic expression, connecting communities, revitalizing urban spaces, and preserving cultural heritage.
