The entire WRAPPED Studios team helped create a breathtaking work of custom public art to celebrate the work of artist Charles Arnoldi.

Charles Arnoldi is an internationally renowned American sculptor and painter known for his striking abstract works. His aesthetic is largely defined by its alternating use of strong geometric forms and poetic lines, as well as his innovative and visually arresting application of rich, vibrant colors. 

Arnoldi’s art studio is located in Venice, California, which is also the home of WRAPPED Studios headquarters. Our team proudly created a stunning work of custom public art that transformed his studio’s exterior walls into an iconic neighborhood landmark.

The 1,500-square foot mural functions as a celebratory showcase of Venice’s thriving artistic and creative culture. It depicts Arnoldi and multiple other famous locals, including Hollywood action hero and former California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger. The mural also offers a nod to Venice’s famous lifeguard towers and pays homage to the Black Lives Matter movement. 

Additional elements and design features combine to tell the compelling story of Venice culture. Our artists also worked in many Easter eggs and hidden references to the city and its colorful history, making this custom public art mural worthy of careful study and repeat visits.

Custom public art transforms generic buildings into high-profile local landmarks and creates a long list of community benefits.

The Charles Arnoldi studio project speaks to the transformative power of custom public art. As it did in this case, large-format public murals can transform nondescript features of the urban landscape into high-impact landmarks that live and breathe local culture. 

Property owners and management companies can also leverage the power of custom public art to increase their property values. Public-facing artwork that attracts attention can dramatically raise the profile of an urban destination, drawing foot traffic that has a positive trickle-down effect on local businesses.

Our studio has the capability to create magnificent murals and stunning works of custom public art for clients in both local and distant destinations. To learn more, please contact a member of our client services team.
