Mural in progress (LittleThaiPlace Langford)

little thai place langford mural

My latest mural which I am about to begin will be at the LittleThaiPlace restaurant located in Langford, Victoria BC.


Unlike some of the other murals I’ve painted in restaurants which were not open yet to the public because of complete renovations, the Little Thai Place in Langford will remain open as I work my magic.

At certain times I will be working painting the mural during open hours and at other times I will be working after hours on this project.

Hopefully I will not spill any paint on anyone’s delicious thai food plates…:)

The Little Thai Place restaurant in Langford is quite an amazing space and will be a perfect canvas for me to let my brushes go loose!

I invite you to come often, dine and savor the amazing food prepared by some of the best chefs in this city…

Come often and watch as I transform the restaurant from it’s existing look to what it will become.

Follow this page as it is here that I will be posting the progress of the mural for you.



Well a few days have since passed where I began the mural work…

There is a mezzanine in the restaurant and I decided to begin working upstairs, especially since I can work during open hours.

Here are a few photo’s of the walls…

have some objects placed on them. This will help create a little depth to the mural walls.
