About Grahame

Grahame was born and raised in the UK. After graduating from art school he continued his training at the Bristol Old Vic Theatre School in England. He began his working life in theater, as a scenic artist at the Welsh National Opera, before becoming a full time self-employed artist. Grahame’s career has spanned three decades and during that time he has painted scenes for many major films, TV commercials and exhibitions.


Grahame’s talent and his love for tricking the eye with trompe l'œil naturally progressed into creating his one-of-a-kind works of art for residential homes, hotels and restaurants. His bespoke mural work is sought after in many luxury establishments around the world. 


"Grahame Ménage painted almost every surface in my house doing everything from tromp l'œil to faux finishing to frescos and cartouches and murals. He is amazingly versatile and talented and a pleasure to work with. I can't say enough wonderful things about this fabulous painter who turned my home into a work of art."

his approach

Grahame’s murals are extraordinary works of art, each designed and crafted to suit individual client tastes. Each project is carefully researched with custom samples created, before the painstaking mural creation.


His completed rooms are immersive. "They have an energy to them" says Grahame. "These are environments you experience through personal interaction. You can touch them; examine them in detail; or stand back to take in the bigger picture. These are rooms to be lived in, not just looked at."

When in the process of personalizing a project for a client Grahame aims for his work to become a reflection of the client's individuality; just as the choices they make in the paintings they buy or the antiques they collect express something about who they are. He says: "That way, when the client steps inside the work of art I've created for them, they may never want to leave."
