Precious metals and strong colors are her signature. Mercedes creates modern art based on ancient techniques and with her own set of rules. She works in two different art forms, verre églomisé which involves mirrored gilding and painting on glass and furniture art, exclusive furniture that is created in only one copy, alternatively the pair.
Mercedes Murat's artwork brings something new and exciting to the world of art and she has exhibited her work in venues around the world, such as Milan, Florence, Atlanta, Palm Beach, Boca Raton, Helsinki, Oslo and Sweden, where she lives.
The artist about his work: - In my art I combine 24k gold, platinum, white gold etc. mirrored on the back of glass. Working with these materials that consist of both such fragility and strength is satisfying to me in many ways, but mostly because of its shimmering mirrors and light reflections that make my stained glass pieces change depending on how the light falls in the room. There is a mystery behind these paintings, even for me as an artist. When I paint the motifs on the back of the glass, they come to life on the viewer's side.
My furniture art adds style and personality to your home. Unique art meets design.
