A great method of presenting history and design an apartment – murals.

A mural is a formmethod of outdoor art, it genneraly huge and has a significant meaning. This form of art is very common in the western Europe and in the United States, but it have become more and more popular in the other states.

In large cities we can meet murals on the sides of buildings, bus stations, the buildings corporations and other spaces with huge surface area. Murals in cities may perform a large number of various things such as information, advertising, nevertheless they may also tell a history. In the last decade murals have become a common method of commemorating important



historical events, very big pictures on the building’s walls have appeared in cities like Łódź and Poznań. Great murals cities of Radom show a history of the events of Czerwiec’76 and Poznań on the facade of one of the houses the artist painted a mural commemorating the casualties of June’56 in the 55th anniversary of the protests. Another town which we could include to the murals cities group is Piła, where in 2013 was painted a historical mural commemorating the Cursed soldiers (see more). This year on one of the school’s building appeared a mural which shows the airmen from Poland, the bigest heroes of the Battle of Britain. The people such as Witold Pilecki and Danuta Siedzikówna “Inka” are shown on historical picture, which in 2013 was made on the ZHP building in the city of Kalisz. On the streets of Gniezno in 2013 was painted a series of historical murals, which were related to Wielkopolska Uprising, similar painting is in Wizna this is a memory of the commander of the battle of “Wizna”. It is a great method of teaching history. Today murals are using not just as a form of outdoor art, but as well as a decoration in private houses, where their are used to show imaginationstyle of the owners.

The most common space where we like to show our brand new style is the center of our home and in that space we have living room murals (murals wallpaper), which can make an impression on our guests. Ideas for living room murals can be different, they are limited just by our imagination, so it can be the Eiffel Tower if you love Paris, it can be the world map, dogs or plants for their fans.
