Da Vinci Themed Printed Tile Mural

When I met Architect Mark Stewart from Mark Stewart Designs I knew something special was about to transpire. Mark shared his plans for the “Da Vinci” home being built by builder Terry Hutchinson in the Portland Oregon 2012 Street of Dreams.

A mutual friend had introduced us and thought my artwork on tile would exactly match Mark’s needs for this years project. A short discussion later we were making plans to integrate an imported porcelain tile mural above the fireplace in a space that graces the entryway and adjoins the dining room.

The tile mural had to be exactly right to align with the style and theme of the home design. The fireplace was two sided and with one mural presenting as the first impression when you enter the home, the other side and mural would accent and carry the theme into the great room.

Da Vinci’s La Scapigliata Tile Mural

The next step was to determine what art to use. When Mark described the architecture as large beams construction with stone from floor to ceiling I set out on my search. After looking at many works of art from Leonardo Da Vinci I settled on his La Scapicliata sepia tone portrait of a woman’s head as the entry way piece. Balancing the masculine design with a feminine work of art that set a soft tone as you enter the home gave balance to the overall design.

After evaluating the dimensions of the space I settled on a 40”x40” tile mural constructed using 20”x20” imported Italian Porcelain. Four tiles fit tightly without grout lines gave the seamless look desired for the entryway art. The scale was perfect and the install team from Campbell’s Tile Concepts surrounded the mural with a beautiful field of slate the led into the surrounding vertical beams and arched beam above the mural.

From the dining room the subject appears to be glancing softly from her stately entry way location. The direction of her eyes lead into the beautifully designed dining room.

Great Room Vitruvian Man Tile Mural

For the space above the great room fireplace we elected to go with a strong and obvious Da Vinci theme with Leonardo’s Vitruvian Man. This work of art demonstrates the human proportion and how it fits into architectural spaces; it accented the strong design and adds to the room ambiance without distracting from the magnificent architectural features.

The Vitruvian Man mural was made using 8” x 8” porcelain made in the U.S.A. installed with 1/16th grout lines. This well crafted installation again showed the talents of Campbell’s Tile Concepts.

With lighting added to highlight these two murals they were a perfect match to both the design theme and visual inspiration created by Mark Stewart.

This home truly is the premiere home of the 2012 Street of Dreams and it was a great pleasure to work on this project.
