Hi! I'm Alessandra Tortone! I am full of passion for creating mural art and have more than 20 years of experience in the art industry. With my expertise in creating magnificent mural art, hand painted window design, and graffiti street art, I can guarantee that I can bring your ideas to life in a way that you never thought possible. Trust me to turn those creative visions into a beautiful reality!
I am delighted to present to you my artistic journey, and it is an honor to share my deep passion for the world of art and the memorable experiences it has afforded me. My love for painting was ignited years ago, in 2000, while pursuing art courses in the beautiful region of Sardinia, Italy. Since then, I have had the opportunity to work on multiple large-scale art projects, creating incredible wall murals and frescoes for restaurants, hotels, and private homes globally.
I am proud to have collaborated with several well-known brands, such as L’Oreal, Starbucks, Kraken Rum, and Friziderm, as well as esteemed personalities such as J.K. Rowling, Brad Pitt, and Angelina Jolie, creating stunning and unique party sets in collaboration with Nellie Shepherd. However, my greatest joy comes from contributing positively to community projects, such as when we worked with Paint your planet, Make it Ealing BID, Love Uxbridge BID, Positive Putney BID, Act for Ealing BID, Discover Welling.
Thank you for taking the time to learn about my artistic journey, and I am excited about the possibility of future collaborations.
The Beginning (BIO):
As they say, it’s never too late to discover your true passion. For me, it came after years of self-reflection and contemplation. I knew that I had to pursue my love for painting – and so I did. It wasn’t an easy decision, but with the unwavering support of my loved ones, I decided to take the leap of faith and dive deep into the art world.
My journey as an artist started in the beautiful island of Sardinia, Italy in 2000. It was there that I had the privilege of participating in numerous painting and drawing courses, and it was there that my passion for art began to truly blossom. From there, I took my artistic training to the next level by journeying to Rome, where I honed my skills even further. With perseverance and dedication, I continued to refine my craft. I tackled more extensive projects, including expansive wall paintings and frescoes in private residences and restaurants throughout Sardinia. Looking back, it’s amazing to see how far I’ve come. And yet, I still feel like there is so much more to learn and create. It’s a journey that I am excited to continue on for as long as I can.
2006 - 2023
In 2006, I made the decision to relocate to London to enhance my skills as a mural artist and street artist. Over the course of two years, I established a considerable customer base, providing bespoke hand-painted murals for a range of establishments such as restaurants, coffee shops, upscale pubs, private residences, nurseries, and hospitals. One of our most noteworthy commercial projects involved collaborating with Starbucks and Paul Sweeney in creating large-scale wall murals for more than 250 shops across the UK, as well as in cities like Paris, Switzerland, and Austria. Recently, we undertook a community art project for Ladbury Housing Association, where our team created a beautiful 100 meter long wall painting to enhance the local community’s surroundings. Contributing to larger initiatives like this instilled a sense of purpose and fulfilment in us. Apart from international projects, we have facilitated numerous residential projects to aid in community enhancement, which has promoted togetherness and a sense of belonging among the local residents, latest one in collaboration with EEA and royal Greenwich

Murals are a well-established form of artwork that involves directly applying paint to walls, ceilings, or even glass surfaces. Its long history spans back to ancient times and has since then remained a favorite art form, even in modern times. Hand-painted murals are widely used to decorate both the interior and exterior of buildings, showcasing remarkable durability that withstands the test of time while maintaining its beauty.
When considering the cost of wall murals, there are a variety of factors that each artist takes into account, such as square footage, complexity, details, travel, and the number of individuals involved. The price will differ from artist to artist, and from job to job. Larger murals in commercial buildings or offices will typically cost more than smaller feature walls in residential areas. The standard charge is approximately £50/100 per square foot, although this cost can rise significantly for hand-painted murals, depending on the artist. Generally speaking, most mural projects will begin around £800 for a design that measures 3 meters by 3 meters.
