Aki Mural Studio Chicago creates custom wall murals, trompe l'oeil, and canvas paintings for businesses and homes throughout the United States and worldwide. Murals may be applied directly to walls, or can be painted on to canvas and then installed.
Wall Murals: Our muralists will travel to your location and will paint your custom mural directly on the wall.
Canvas Murals: Our canvas murals are shipped to your door, and hung like wallpaper. Canvas is a good option for those who might face relocation. Our canvas murals can be safely removed and re-installed in your new location.
Design and Pricing: Aki Mural Studio will work closely with you to create the artistic effect you desire. After receiving your call or email, we will contact you for a free artistic consultation. If you are in Chicago or in the Chicagoland area, one of our artists will meet with you at the location site. If you are located outside of the region, the consultation may be done via email: we will need to know the dimensions, and any ideas you may have regarding images or designs. We encourage you to visit our mural and trompe l'oeil galleries for inspiration. Feel free to share your ideas, photos or clippings with our artists.
Once we have completed the consultation, you will be given a detailed estimate. Our pricing is based on the size, complexity, and level of detail you prefer.
If you wish to proceed, our artists will create an initial sketch for your input and review. Upon approval, our artists will begin the mural or trompe l'oeil. We will consult with you on materials, design, color, and details to the murals environment. For canvas murals, we will email you progress pictures, or if you live in the Chicago area you can view the work in progress at our studio.

Aki Mural Studio Chicago can create faux finishes on most surfaces. From columns with faux marble to entire walls that need a new look, we can create or imitate any faux finish you desire.

Faux finish pricing is based on the size, complexity, and level of detail you prefer. Faux finishes requiring multiple layers will generally cost more than simpler finishes. If you wish to proceed a sample board of your faux finish is created for your input and review. Upon approval of the sample, we will begin the faux finish.
