A mural art is basically some artwork which is applied directly to a wall, ceiling or other sizable stable surface. The term "mural" hit the mainstream with the 20th century "muralista" art movement in Mexico. The technique of using mural arts goes all the way back to prehistoric cave paintings such as those in the south of France. The ancient Egyptians painted mural arts on tomb walls, and the ancient Greeks made regular use of frescos and other mural arts. Today's mural arts can be made of tile, stone, stained glass or paint and can be used throughout the home.
