I honestly didn't know "Art" could be so beautiful, until I met Duncan. Duncan made my ideas come to life and as you can see with the attached photo's, the 3 murals tells a story, mine and my partners story. I witnessed Duncan day after day his commitment, his love for the arts and his eye for intricate details. When he applied his paint brush each imagine slowly became more lifelike which was beyond my expectations. Thank You Duncan - It's an absolute treasure!

Duncan worked tirelessly to transform my boring grey pool wall into a masterpiece! He listened to the brief and somehow managed to come up with something even better than I had imagined & I absolutely love it. Duncan is incredibly talented and I can highly recommend him.

Amazing job by Duncan. This has turned out better than we expected and had made a real feature of the basketball court. Highly recommended

Masterpiece! Duncan is a highly talented artist, he was able to take a simple concept and turn it into something breathtaking. Our inspirational mural in the gym sits centre stage, with members commenting on how realistic the artwork looks. We couldn’t be any happier with the final result. Throughout the process, he worked independently, was able to secure the necessary equipment for the job (ladder), had excellent communication and easy to deal with. We couldn’t recommend Duncan any higher, we’re looking forward to further collaborations.

We engaged Duncan to do a mural on the back wall of a mini basketball court in an office/recreational space. Duncan was very understanding and accommodating when we had some delays and things we needed to work around. His work is outstanding and has impressed everyone involved. Duncan was great at communicating with us and even did up some mock ups of the space so we could get a good idea before the work started which was really helpful. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Duncan for his amazing work, we couldn't be happier. I've already passed on his details to some people who have seen his work on site and would like to get him involved in their projects!

Duncan is incredibly talented and created a beautiful mural for our restaurant. He did this amazing detailed work within 2 days (crazy) and was great to work with, very kind and easygoing and made the whole process seamless. We hope to have more spaces for artwork in the future so we can can hire Duncan again. Highly recommend!

Duncan did an absolutely amazing job on what I thought would be a really difficult project; a lifelike Punk Chic Frida painting on a large corrugated metal garage door, but also incorporating personalised alterations and inclusions. He was more than happy to collaborate with me on the final look and feel of the piece. I remain amazed by the work he produced and all the time he worked with such a happy and friendly attitude. Thanks again Duncan :)
