(About Tom Cousins)



Exterior mural paintings on walls, hoardings, and caravans - whatever surfaces need imagifying, for business, civic pride or protest.

I'm always on the look out for walls to paint, sometimes groups like Reading the Forest have an image they would like me to paint but have no wall in mind, so if you would like a mural its always worth contacting me, even if you have no money or image in mind, I might be able to match you up with someone who has.

There are a lot of advantages to being a local mural painter, its easier to help in the negotiations involved in setting up the project, to spend more time on a better local design consultation process, to take a day off when its raining or showers half way through the day, to identify and fix issues that develop with the painting a few years down the line, to judge how the well the painting acheived its goals and learn from any workmanship flaws in the the work.

When I've painted twin town murals its obvious there a huge differences in what is culturally taken for granted or will cause offense in different countries, this is also true in England regionally, it is easy to accidentally transgress.

The reason my earlier work is in Bradford is that I used to live there and still go back for the odd job. So if you are unfortunate enough not to live in the Forest but want a mural I can travel if I am inspired.
