Introduction: Hello! My name is Joe and I have been professionally painting large murals for over 10 years. I'm passionate about making ideas come to life on a wall, and the impact they can have for the client and the community. I specialize in illustrating a wide range of designs, and painting them on any scale using spraypaint or brush. *Kindly read pricing info below under Frequently asked questions, thanks! My mural clients include a wide range, from the Kennedy Center, New Balance, &Pizza, Monster Energy, and Chef Jose Andres to small businesses and individuals for commissions at their homes.

WOW! I cannot say enough wonderful things about Joe and his team. Not only did he execute the most fabulous mural in our backyard he was an absolute DREAM to work with. I can honestly say we were so sad to see him finish because we loved having him around but we are BLOWN AWAY with the end product. If you are looking to hire an artist Joe is the most professional and talented artist we have EVER worked with!!!!! I wish 10 stars was an option.

Joe goes above and beyond. I was looking to get interior and exterior murals done at my family home, with nature and comic book themes. Joe not only made the design process easy and enjoyable, but created pieces that exceeded my expectations. Highly recommend!

We were really thrilled with the perfectly painted mural for our event! I referred Basta Studio to 2 of my colleagues and their companies were equally happy with the results of the murals for their offices.

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    Pricing is easy! (Please see below for Interior House painting rates) MURALS We go by the industry standard of art/square footage. However the rates we offer are typically at least 20% less. There are three rates broken down by complexity: $20 Easy/ background, and solid colors $25 Medium/ minimal design elements, and or typography $35 Complex/ Lots of design elements with more detail *The Design is mapped on a grid with a photo of your wall so you can see these rates itemized

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    The process is smooth! MURALS -We start with an initial discussion that can be done virtually at no costs (this can also include your photo of the desired space that can be used for your Design mock-up). - Free phone consultation to discuss mural process and details of your project. From there I can measure the space for an accurate estimate based on square footage and design. -$150 for 3 sketches that lead to your final design, so you get exactly what you want. This includes time and design work and changes to reach your goal. -Once the design is agreed, 50% mural art price is paid to start/the remainder when the mural is completed -between $200-300 for paint only for average 1000 square feet / all other supplies needed are included (ladder, blue tape, buckets, rollers, drop-cloth, etc)

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    2005 graduate of George Mason Art and Design. I'm a passionate artist who has been creating work since grade school of what inspires me. I enjoy taking any design into a larger and tangible format, along with the practice of the process itself. This has driven me to constantly improve my craft. Every project I finish is a reflection of that, especially the satisfaction of each client.
