Massively Beautiful Floral Murals

London-based artist Paul Morrison creates large-scale landscapes like no other. Focusing on floral motifs, the contemporary artist incorporates gigantic compositions of flowers and botanical elements into architectural environments. While most landscape portraits reflect the enormity of man-built structures or the vastness of a natural land, Morrison fills the frame with enormous renditions of plant life in the foreground, leaving the actual landscape in the background.

The artist's installations generally employ his signature monochromatic scheme, often sticking to a classic black and white configuration. The exceptions are his pieces that blend 24-karat gold leaf with acrylic paints, though he still uses only the colors gold and white. No matter the color scheme, each mural presents a larger-than-life experience in which the spectator can take the time out to appreciate the beauty of botany.
