Murals Inc. (office) · Piekstraat 31, Rotterdam · OPEN DURING OFFICE HOURS


About Murals Inc.

Murals Inc. is a renowned art platform for contemporary wall paintings. Located in our spatial exhibition space at Piekstraat 31 in Rotterdam, we showcase a rotating exhibition program featuring (inter)national mural painters, including established artists specializing in murals and a new generation of street artists. Each exhibition focuses on a central theme, providing insights into artistic movements, painting styles, genres, and current developments in mural art, emphasizing conceptual frameworks. In our exhibition space, we provide mural painters with the opportunity to engage with exhibition concepts specifically tailored to the medium. We also offer them increased visibility within the established art circuit and initiate challenging projects at external locations.

Why Murals Inc.?

Mural art is currently undergoing significant developments. Various (sub)movements have emerged rapidly, each expressing itself differently within the contemporary art discourse. Moreover, an increasing number of mural painters from the street circuit are finding their way into the established art scene, resulting increasingly genre-transcending work. However, there is still insufficient platform provided for these exciting and autonomous developments occurring globally within mural art, which remain relatively unseen locally (in Rotterdam and its surroundings) as well as nationally. Murals Inc. provides insight into and conducts research on the evolution of the medium, aiming to offer a deeper perspective on mural art. Murals Inc. achieves this deeper perspective by highlighting the vast diversity and versatility of the rapidly evolving genre of mural art through its activities as an art platform. This offering is not exhaustive but serves as research to elucidate the artistic developments occurring within the medium.
