Shutter Mural for Ry's Barbershop / Morgan's Haus Of Tans

June 15, 2018

Date: June 16th - June 21st 2018​

Duration: 6 Days

Location: Ry's Barbershop  /   Morgan's Haus of Tans, Port Talbot, South Wales, United Kingdom.

I recently returned from a trip to the UK where I completed this shutter mural for Ry's Barbershop and the soon to open Morgan's Haus of Tans, in Port Talbot, South Wales. My design depicts both sides of the business with a bold and vibrant composition. The design attracts people to pose against the mural as a backdrop for photos, creating the perfect social media marketing opportunity for the newly established business. I used spray paint, outdoor paint and markers. The mural was completed after hours so as not to disrupt business, as the shutter needed to be down for the duration of painting. The mural took me 6 days working 6am-9am /  6pm-sunset and I enjoyed every moment of it! 

If your business is looking for an exterior or interior creative mural artist please contact me to discuss your requirements and I would be happy to generate some unique ideas for you.

Natalie was approached by the Director of F&B to give the chalk wall entrance of the Spanish restaurant and bar SALERO a bit of a makeover. Salero Tapas & Bodega offers authentic Spanish food, drinks and a warm contemporary atmosphere, bringing the flair and grace of flamenco dancers, matadors and guitar melodies to Dubai and the chalk wall is the first thing customers see when they walk into this hidden Dubai gem. Natalie worked with the F&B Director to ensure the artwork she created was clean, bold and representative of the restaurant and bar. She used elements from the existing interior murals and the SALERO logo encased in a thick, strong border. The artwork has transformed the entrance and ensures a creative touch from the outside to in.
