HAMSA WALL MURAL IN MARRAKECH
A dream came true.
Since my first time in Morocco, I'm deeply in love with the magical city Marrakech. All my art since then is inspired by the beautiful architecture and colors of Morocco. I love the old, salmon colored walls that are build from natural tone earth.
I was so exited when the owner of Villa fleur d'oranger asked me to paint a mural on his walls, next to the swimming pool and the beautiful nature that surrounds the villa. It was always a dream for me to paint a beautiful mural, but I never had the place or the chance to.
Here you can see my painting process. I really enjoyed painting on these raw textured walls in between the blooming orange trees and the peacocks that were visiting me while I painted. It actually took me about 3 days to paint the mural.
If you should ever visit Marrakech, you can see my mural when you stay at the beautiful Villa fleur d'oranger. It's a little outside of Marrakech, in the middle of nature. You can even see the Atlas Mountains from there! It's defenitely the most beautiful place I ever stayed at while I was in Marrakech.
