Our tile murals are carefully hand painted in our studio with vivid bright colors of deep cobalt blues, light aqua blues, oranges, greens, browns and reds. Painting tile murals has been our family tradition since 1922. Our selection of original ceramic tile murals are designed by Hagop Karakashian, and include elegant peacocks perched on trees, birds of paradise with long plumes, pomegranate tree with peacocks and red colored pomegranates, the tall majestic palm tree with gazelles, the tree of life, the two gazelles and the birds in vine tree. All our tile murals are intended for use and installation in kitchens, bathrooms, showers, fireplaces, patios, table tops, fountains, indoor or outdoor tiling projects. You can see examples of tile installations in our photo gallery and Facebook page. Please browse and enjoy selecting a ceramic tile mural for your tile installation project.

Peacock ceramic tile mural in a kitchen cook topIn the photo to the left, the Pomegranate tree and peacocks ceramic tile mural has beautifully transformed the whole kitchen. It has added color, design and shape to the backsplash, and most importantly, it has added the hand painted original look and feel. The size is 30 x 24 inches.

You may not not have this much space in your backsplash. If you have 18 inches between the countertop and cabinets, you can use one of the 18 inch designs, or use single accent tiles, placed in between the field tiles.

Floral patterns and bird designs add a nice decorative colorful touch to a wall or empty space. Peacocks are elegant and attractive creatures with colorful plumage, and Birds of paradise can be identified by their distinctive long plumage. The gazelle is a symbol of grace and beauty, grazing among the foliage (on a cobalt blue background). The vine tree represents eternal life, with male and female birds on either side of the tree, eating it's fruit.

Our designs are hand painted on ceramic tile, hand glazed and fired at a high temperature. The colors are sealed in permanently, giving you colorful original ceramic tile murals which last a lifetime. No digital processes are used - only traditional methods of hand painting, glazing and firing are used to give the tiles an authentic, real look and feel, with strong colors, varying shades, and thin outlines, carefully executed in our studio. These works of art make beautiful decorative kitchen backsplashes, bathroom tile accents, and fireplace face or top insets. The tiles withstand heat and moisture (in kitchens and bathrooms), and weathering outdoors (extreme heat and cold).

Tile murals are made by taking a design and painting it on several tiles, and then putting the tiles together, like pieces of a puzzle, to form a large image. Our tile murals are painted on multiples of 6 inch tiles. They are ready to be installed in walls, kitchens, sink backsplashes. Or if you prefer, you can buy the tiles and then have them mounted in a wood frame, to hang on the wall, as a mobile decorative wall hanging.

    • kitchen backsplashes

  • Each tile making up a mural is 6 inches in size, and 3/16th (about a 1/4 inch thick) of an inch thick.

The process of hand painting ceramic tile murals

The process consists of a number of stages. First I design the mural on paper with pencil, and after a few final adjustments, it is ready to be hand transferred onto tiles. I paint directly onto the tiles with a thin brush, using black paint, outlining the whole design on the tiles. I then fill in the colors and after waiting for it to dry, I hand glaze the tiles and then fire them in a kiln. The outcome is a unique hand painted ceramic tile mural ready to be installed in your home. Here are some pictures:
