Robert Milling is a classical mural painter from Los Angeles, California. His trompe l’oeil painting style is reminiscent of the works of great renaissance painters. Working as a professional artist for over 30 years, Robert has had plenty of time to perfect his skill, working as a freelance mural painter for companies and private clients all over the world.

The subject matter of Robert’s murals is also classical – often featuring angelic figures in paradise-like garden scenes cover walls and ceilings. Robert also has a great eye for perspective, and looking at these romantic murals in person must be like staring directly into another world. You really get a great sense of depth with these. Along with his murals, Robert also does faux finish work which gives his art an interesting carry-over into interior design.


Also on Robert’s website are some personal paintings of the California coast. While his skilled hand for realism continues in these paintings, the scenes are a little more familiar.
