Artist Ania Amador has brought the ocean indoors with a stunning mural of the sea. Using spray paint and the power of perspective, she has transformed a room into an underwater seascape complete with marine life and flora. The piece extends from floor to ceiling—and then some—creating the feeling that you’re standing on the ocean floor and looking up as the sun illuminates the rippling waves above you. It complements the placement of the room, which has an ocean view.
This incredible mural isn’t the first time we’ve marveled at Amador’s work. Previously, we’ve been mesmerized by her ability to turn a swimming pool into a place that’s out of this world. The pool challenged her to use every part of its surface, from the bottom of it to the steps. The ocean ceiling mural has a similar demand and was completed in about 40 hours over the course of 10 days.
“Incorporating the ceiling, corners, and multiple planes was a challenge, but I am glad I went for it, as it created an immersive experience,” she tells My Modern Met. “The time-lapse video allows me to share the unfolding with others and give tips along the way. This has been an amazing way to connect with other artists and inspire everyone to explore their creative sides.”
