Nativitas Dinosaurum

Nativitas Dinosaurum (Birth of a Dinosaur) was my first mural. The work was part of a full renovation project of a private flat in Barcelona, and placed in the future room of a newborn child.

The client had in mind a dinosaur-themed mural with a blank background.What I did was, basically, making up a composition with figures that I had already used in the Dinosaurs Poster. I also added some special details, such as the bushes in the lower corners, as a way to properly fit the scene within the wall. 

In order to transfer my design to a 2,7 meter high wall, I helped myself with a pencil grid, carefully pointing the position and sizes of elements such as plugs or the socle. I had to addapt my style to a new technique too: not only I changed the original colors for brigthter ones, but also I replaced the black contours for color ones. This way, the contrast between the filling colors and the perimeter is softer, and more suitable for a childrens room.

Painting the corners was probably the most difficult and challenging of all. Not only for their position, but also for the need of recreating a subtle sensation of lushness and depth.
