The mural at Panorama was a collaboration between two local artist; Anthony DeMelas and Kristine Di Grigoli. Together they fused their styles through photography, digital media tools, and painting to coincide with Luca Sena owner of Panorama and Meg Rodgers, interior designer visions.
The creative process flows within each layer, from photographs of a painting of Italian Landscapes (previously displayed in the lobby), colored wine bottles, and Architects Dream painting by DeMelas sliced in three care of Pentimenti Gallery. Once the image was photographed and fused within digital media tools it was then printed onto a large canvas. The mix media image was then ready for DeMelas to add the final painted layers to create an organic and three dimensional feel.
The mural’s intention was to give the viewer a panoramic look as if they were looking through colored wine bottles onto a contemporary abstract Italian landscape and to compliment the largest Cuvée wine system in the world.
