Chris Oldham - Spray Paint Mural

What a great way to comaflauge a metal storage shed that houses the lawn mower and gardening tools! Chris Oldham uses spray paint to create bold and vibrant murals for area businesses around the city and in this case his friends shabby metal storage shed at their home.

Chris has faux painted large murals on the side of brick buildings from the early 1900s that look like they are the original advertisement that has weathered over 100 years.

He also paints vintage windows with graphic images for children's bedrooms like frogs, turtles, deer, snails, etc.

The owner of the shed was so enthused about painting the shed that Chris talked her into doing a side of her own. With a little help this is the beginnings of an animal menagerie mural she has started on her shed.

I love it! Because I just hate the sight of an ugly shed.
