    I'm going to a gym for three weeks for free training, in exchange I'm painting murals along two walls (8 ft by 30 feet). The gym is BJJ, MMA, and Muay Thai. I kinda want it to be epic but I've got artist block. Any ideas, or ones you've seen that look cool?

    Are you looking to have people competing in the mural? I assume so. Since it's 2 walls have 2 people rolling in the gi and then someone using grappling in MMA on the first wall; then on the second wall someone using striking in MMA then the final 'portrait' being more traditional Muay Thai.

    Or maybe just BJJ on one wall and Muay Thai on the other.

    you can make it seem very simple like bjj/muay thai etc. or you can make it actually artistic and think of something allegorical. Look at some famous muralists and see how they dealt with their subjects and how they depicted that within the space. Find ideas from there , i know they're not mma murals but its good to look at things like this to get ideas on how to approach a subject.

    look at these obvious choices:

    Jose Clemente Orozco

    This is American Top Team Vero Beach. He really liked the tagging I did on my gym, I was thinking doing "ATTVEROBEACH" along one wall, making the o be the American Top Team logo.

    :rofl: that would be epic. i have a ton of exposed brick in my new apartment. there's this big opening in the middle where its...just wall i guess...anyway it's perfect for a mural. i've been trying to find someone that can paint well enough to do it. i'm going to commission someone to do that exact picture.

    I usually charge 20 bucks an hour, can get a big piece (8' x 8') done in about 4 hours.

    This one is not money exchange though, just two a day training with no living fees.
