Architecture & Mural Paintings

In a mural, the painting escapes from the narrow borders of a frame and becomes one with architecture. Le Corbusier, who was first a great painter and sculptor and then an architect, wanted to create a “synthesis of the arts.” Arts not in decorative roles but organically bound to architecture, something that with the deepening of separation has been completely lost.
