45 Beautiful Wall Paintings from Graffiti to Realism: Artworks that Wow

Inspiration August 10, 2011

A splash of color, a burst of wonder and loads and loads of raw artistic talent. In a few ways, it will be weird to say that all those three things are exactly what you’ll find on some walls. (I stand corrected, maybe it is more befitting to say that it’s the artist that have that loads and loads of talent.)

Since time immemorial, artists have been painting walls. From fresco to secco, from realism to abstract representation and now to urban styled graffiti, painting indeed leaves its wonderful imprint upon those who are able to see them. For today, we’re showcasing some of the best wall graphics on the web. You can use these as inspiration in designing for both the web and for print, and of course, for decorating interiors.

We hope you enjoy this showcase of 45 beautiful wall art ideas. Feel free to share your discovery or a link to your own work below. Have fun!
