Large scale mural paintings offer the opportunity to send a powerful message at an even greater scale. Large Scale murals are classified by Bala Creative as any singular mural painting over 500 Sq.

Large scale murals have a heightened level of exposure, often observed by a larger number of individuals due to the sheer size. Planning to accommodate this exposure and size must be taken into account when implementing the design. We digitally design our murals and keep in mind the size, access, and surrounding area when developing our mural concepts to account for the large mural size and increased viewership. Once we've finalized a design for large scale specifications, the bulk paint purchases can begin.
