Decorative painting – artistic approaches that reach the world and beyond the countless century. Murals are used in ancient Egypt and Greece. Tombs and temples are painted in luxury with a combination of imitation and murals techniques like frescoes. In the beginning of general art, decorative paintings had the origins of the people’s art of every nation. The craftsmen and peasants paint their dwelling walls, furniture, doors and various household objects with a simple pattern based on nature, which most often illustrate flowers. These craftsmen use paints made of natural pigments and their designs often use limited pallets. Their equipment is simple, just consisting of a round brush made with animal hair.
In medieval times, paintings were concentrated in churches and in palaces. Most of the pictures in these decorative paintings are religious icons and illustrations of biblical scenes. As travel and culture expand, special forms of painting practiced in a region or state help people retain their ancestral identity. For example, Rosemaling is a traditional Norwegian painting that is still practiced today. In the 17th century, decorative painting have been widely used in palaces throughout Europe. Not only aristocrats, but also middle and upper classes began hiring painters to beautify their homes and furniture. Ideal artists at the end of the 19th and early 20th century revived the belief that art can not be limited to large rooms, museums, and canvas, but must confer on the life of every human being.
Immediately the jewelry box, hand painted plates, letterboxes, commemorative boxes, mirrors, vases and other large array of utilitarian objects are decorated with decorative painting of all kinds. The difference between the main art of art and painting and light art, cloth and ceramic paintings are at least partly eliminated. At present, the artist’s new generation uses modern materials and techniques. In addition to the almost endless brush selection, artists can use mediums such as gel, retarder, extender, and glaze to create paintings that will stick to almost all surfaces. These artists began to identify themselves with a variety of techniques and artists who have created or popularized them from the art of national or local people. Their fair approach includes designing wallpaper.
