I have been a long time fan, follower and advocate of the hand
painted sign. Original hand painted wall signs are a rarity in the
city and the combination of disappearing old buildings and the
arrival of huge vinyl billboards have taken their toll. However,
I have noticed in recent years, there has been a renaissance
of this ancient craft with the arrival of several new mural
companies, all passionate about the combination of art and
design on large scale projects.
