For most mural projects, there are 2-3 parties required to create a mural:
- An artist to paint the mural.
- A property owner to provide the wall for the mural.
- A funding source that wants to commission a mural – like a corporate brand, a non-profit organization or a local government.
Sometimes, the property owner pays the artist to create a mural on the property owner’s wall. In that case, the property owner and the artist collaborate directly on a design for the mural.
Other times, the funding source pays the artist. In that case, the funding source negotiates with the artist and property owner to come up with a design amenable to all three parties.
