Lighted wall murals are artistic installations that utilise light to convey a number of special effects, depending on the mural. From scenes of nature to abstract art, lights can be used on any kind of mural to add to the artistic expression of a piece of art. If you are interested in lighted wall murals, be it to make one on your own or purchase one for your home, learn about some of the special effects these installations can create.

Colour Fades and Changes

Colour fading and changing is one effect that is popular with lighted wall murals. This effect works as the light changes from one colour slowly to another and then another for as many colours as the artist decides to use. This is often seen with abstract lighted murals or fantasy scenery.

Flickering Light

Flickering lights can give a mural the illusion of movement. With this effect, lights pulse in a pattern, such as starting up and moving down, to make it seem as if something in the mural is moving. This kind of effect can often be seen in nature scenes where water is present, such as an ocean view, to give the illusion that the water is moving. You may also see this in abstract art as well.

LED Lights

Small LED lights can also be used for lighted wall murals. You may see LED lights installed in a pattern or funky design in abstract murals. In murals of scenery, you may find LED lights used to give off the look of shining stars, or even to make street lamps in a mural light up, bringing the picture to life.

Black Light

Black lights are another tool that can be used on wall murals and are typically used not as a part of the mural but as a part that highlights the mural. For example, an artist may paint a mural using black-light-responsive paint and install a black light atop the mural to shine down and display the work.

Spot Light

Much like black lights, spot lights can be used to emphasise a part of the mural to convey the art. For example, an artist may paint a mural with a lot of contrasting light and darkness and hang the spotlight to aim at the light part to further emphasise the darkness in the mural.
