About Mel Holmes

About Mel Holmes I've painted murals in the UK and abroad for 25 years. After a studying at art college I reproduced Old Masters paintings for several years. This has been a great source of inspiration to me during my time as a mural artist. Mel Holmes's Work I paint in both oil and acrylic on large canvases up to 10 metres in length. Using traditional techniques of marouflage, I complete most of my work in my studio and then install the canvas on site. I'm particularly interested in figurative work and trompe l'oeil. Mel Holmes uses Winsor & Newton because 'I use Winsor & Newton because they have a very good reputation and it's a name I've grown up with. I've used Winsor and Newton products for over 25 years and I need the assurance that my work will last.'
