Watch Christiano De Araujo and his team create the Queen Street West Mural Project in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
Let’s turn the dull concrete grey walls of the city into a beautiful exciting colorful outdoor museum!
Christiano has created large scale wall murals for over 25 years, proving his ability to successfully execute an outdoor wall mural project of a large scale within the budget and timeline required. Christiano and his team paint wall murals of all sizes, with any art medium, in any style or technique (from realism, hyper-realism, illustration, graphic, to abstract), all year round AND in any location. We experienced in wall mural project management, safety, and are fully insured with a commercial general insurance liability policy as well as WSIB coverage. From commercial clients, to City of Toronto’s StreetARToronto and local neighbourhood BIA’s, I always align my work to the unique needs of a project and ensure all parties are satisfied and inspired by the final work.

Wall Mural Colours
Extensive time and consideration go into the colours used in Christiano’s wall murals, just as with corporate and business branding. Christiano has worked with well-known companies and government organizations such as StreetARToronto (StART), City of Toronto BIAs, Apple, Cirque du Soleil, Flight Centre, Air Canada, Steam Whistle, Jimmy’s Coffee and many others that require thoughtful and precise colour choices. It is Christiano’s obsession with perfect colour matching and accurate representation that plays a large role in him producing stunning results for every one of his clients. Colour is essential in bringing energy to a wall mural: a brightly coloured subject within a dark scene gives a sense of vibrancy and life to the mural.

Wall Mural Project Management
The planning phase of developing a wall mural is critical. Each project has specific needs and requirements. Wall murals present a number of logistics that need to be addressed and are a regular part of our projects. Christiano’s team ensures all aspects are covered and that the process is smooth until project completion. Project Management logistics that Christiano takes into consideration include: • Permits • Equipment rentals (ladders scaffolding, boom lift, swing stages) • Site access, set up and equipment storage • Any specific resources required (such as insurance, contracts, safety and traffic control plans) • Community Consultation and Mentorship

Wall Mural Safety
When painting murals at heights, in public spaces, and in busy or high-traffic areas, safety is our highest priority. Each project is evaluated on an individual basis to ensure that appropriate precautions are taken. This ensures every mural is completed safely. We are willing to be flexible with painting schedules to avoid high traffic times and any inconvenience to business operation in the surrounding area. We are fully insured through Commercial General Insurance Liability Policy as well as WSIB coverage. Christiano has over 25 years of experience working with heavy equipment like scaffolding, powered lift systems, scissor lift, boom lift, swing stage and forklift.

Wall Mural Maintenance
Our method of required maintenance for wall murals follows the city’s graffiti management plan. We recommend applying 2 coats of Sherwin Williams’ anti-graffiti clear coating ‘1K Siloxane’ upon the completion of any wall mural. The non-sacrificial coating is essentially chemical resistant paint. It can be easily cleaned with a low-pressure power washer. This coating also enhances the vibrancy of the colours of the wall mural as well as offers protection against UV rays, weathering, road salts and other forces of nature that degrade or damage the walls. This enhances the mural’s longevity and facilitates ease of maintenance.
