Mosaic Murals

Since I have been focusing on the impending Maia Mural Project, my friend Rebeccah sent me a link to Lewis Lavoie's Mural Mosaic.

Mural Mosaic is a process invented by artist Lewis Lavoie that takes individual paintings and places them in a specific order to create a large painting. In 2004, Lavoie took his process and involve other artists. He pre-prepares panels with color tones and shapes. Using the color guidelines on the prepared panels as inspiration artists create a painting using their own style within the "theme" of the mural subject. All the panels are reunited to create the final image which is kept a secret until the final unveiling.

Each tile is one foot square. At the website you can click on each tile to see them in detail. Truly amazing!

Watch him create a mural....
