I hope to paint a mural one day.

This beautiful tile mural was designed by Maria Keil(b.1914) for the São Sebastião Metro Station. Starting in 1957 Maria designed murals for a total of 19 stations and they are all beautiful works of art. She was also a graphic artist, painter and children´s book illustrator. I love her work.
The top image shows the mural in the Viuva Lamego Tile factory where it was painted. It is not often you can see the origins of these great public works of art.
