Graham Rust: An Extraordinary Muralist and Drawing Artist

Muralist Graham Rust | Paint + Pattern

Graham Rust is a muralist and author who is world-renowned for his incredible, whimsical and detailed trompe l’oeil artistry. Born in Hertfordshire, England in 1942, he studied drawing and painting in both London and New York. To date, he has written five books on these subjects as well as illustrated three additional ones. His murals and ceiling paintings can be found in Europe, America as well as the Middle East.

A large part of the artistry Mr. Rust features is his trompe l’oeil drawings of completed, ongoing or ‘fantasy’ commissions on all manner of surfaces. He enjoys envisioning rooms as a whole (incorporating the ceiling as well) and frequently uses the surfaces to transport us visually. You will find everything from a ‘solid sandstone’ room to a faux bois ornamental ceiling to an English countryside to a tropical paradise in view from the moment you wake up in bed. His work has a wide range of design styles and is visually breathtaking.

Mr. Rust has a mastery of mural and trompe l’oeil decoration. His commissions have ranged from art canvas panels and chimney boards to several spaces in expansive homes. One residence, Ragley Hall in Warwickshire, took him 20 years to complete. He frequently incorporates landscapes, botanicals, drapery and a few tongue-in-cheek artistic flourishes. Of murals, he says,

Form palace to cottage there is always a place for mural decoration: it can transform darkness into light, the humdrum into the exotic; it can lift the spirits of the meanest room and visually transport the occupants into another world.”

Graham Rust’s work and style have influenced generations of top decorative painters and artists while he himself still works on contemporary commissions large and small. To budding artists, he stresses the importance of collecting good reference materials, amassing a personal reference library and working the designs to scale on paper before ever putting paint on the wall. Due to many requests from artists the world over, he also teaches small select groups of students out of his warm countryside studio in Suffolk. We hope you’ve enjoyed seeing a small retrospective of his work.
