Edwin put a mural in our pool and we just love it, It turned out great. We get so many people tell us how great it looks they are amazed. He also painted a mural of our family on a wall in the house the mural turned out great we were never more pleased with the results. We were so happy with his work we had a couple more murals put on the walls. We get so many compliments on the walls and the pool. This guy does excellent work everything he does turns out great.

I highly recommend Edwin Kelly's services for any art work or faux painting needs that you may have. He is truly one of the most talented, creative and innovative professionals that I've ever had the pleasure to work with. In the past several years he has helped to transform my home into a masterpiece. Starting with the cinder block wall that encloses my backyard area, he painted an amazing tropical mural that has changed the whole feel of the place from an eyesore to my own personal island paradise. Unlike other block wall murals that I have seen, Edwin takes the extra step and smooth coats the wall prior to painting , and the finished result puts it way ahead of the others. The wall and grout lines disappear in in it's place appears a sandy beach that blends so well into the existing landscape that it's hard to tell where the ground lets off and the painting begins. He can literally do it all - from underwater pool murals (I have as shark to swim with!), to the clouds on my ceiling, and even huge "yard wolves" that I recently had him make for my daughter for Christmas, his skill never ceases to amaze and enchant. If your project requires originality, expertise and downright talented skill, then you need Edwin! Without a doubt, my favorite project that Edwin has done for me is the Wall-Ahhh! print that hangs over my couch in the living room. This is a print of Ed's original work, and I love the architectural aspects of the design. Instead of being one huge print, it comes in several individual pieces, and can be moved and reapplied if I want to display it in another area or if I ever decide to buy another home. It truly makes my wall disappear and affords a view of a beautiful scenery viewed through a number of portals through the wall. The existing wall itself becomes part of the design and becomes the actual bricks and mortar of the picture! And the best part? It only cost about a tenth of the cost of a traditional wall mural. My friends are blown away when they see "Estate", which is the Wall-Ahhh! print that I chose, and they can't wait to get their own once Edwin gets production up and running. No need to look further for an artistic painter. Go straight to the top and choose the best - Edwin Kelly of Mural Perspective 5 Stars for Edwin!! Lisa CliftonJan 18, 2017
Edwin has been creating murals for my business for over 15 years. He is very experienced and capable of handling any mural job he takes on. He has proven that to us over and over again. The quality of his work was outstanding; he is very easy to work with and committed to your satisfaction. He starts on time and finishes on time. He creates an artistic vision in graphics for your space and then gets your input, tweaks anything necessary and then goes to work on making his creative design come alive in your space. He is extremely attentive to every detail. I highly recommend Edwin!May 2, 2017
Edwin has always done an out standing job when working for the McCaw school of Mines. He always made sure the art work fit perfect to the theme of the project he was working on. The price was always outstanding. I would highly recommend him to anyone that is looking for the best. Please feel free to call me on any of the murals he completed at the school.

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?With regard to money, I like to tell my clients "well, that's the easy part". I do have a pricing structure on my profile and its a good guide, however I am open to working with people and making a win-win happen. Someone wants my services, far-be-it-from-me to make it more difficult to buy, or taint the whole project haggling about money. What a shame to paint a beautiful mural and all the client sees is an uncomfortable purchase from a pretentious artist.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?About 20 yrs ago, I painted my very first mural, my phone has been ringing since that first job. I really don't play the artist card but I gotta tell ya, painting for a living was then, and still is fun ,the approach I take is very grounded and sensible and I think that translates favorably to my clients,they then call back or refer me to a friend, I'm more of a construction worker that builds with paint, I think I could trace all my clients and jobs,to date, back to that very first job.
- Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?The project I recently completed at Emerald Island Casino in Henderson, Nv - Fond of it because of the scale and the amount of work I was handed by owner Tim Brooks, Its a huge project for any man, or company for that matter, I recently moved on for good from that job....13 yrs after starting it and I thank Tim for the opportunity.
