Gladkov Studios Services


Gladkov Studios uses high quality environmentally-friendly, low VOC products and offers the following services and applications:


Color and design consultation - we offer a free preliminary design consultation as a part of our art services.


Custom prepared sketches and samples -
our services include making custom sketches for each project - fine art mural, trompe l’oeil, or fine art painting.


Over the years the Studio created a significant amount of samples with a wide variety of techniques and materials. This allows us to be well prepared for the first meeting with a client and have a starting point for a new project. Upon making a decision about colors, textures and styles, we create a new set of samples with the client’s specifications.

Fine art murals, fine art painting, trompe l’oeil effects, decorative painting -
lettering, stencils and historic ornaments.


Murals, trompe l’oeil or ornaments can be painted directly on ceilings or walls, or on canvas in our studio, then installed by us or shipped to the client for installation.


We can redesign or modify any historic ornament to the client’s needs and space requirements, adjusting colors and size. Ornaments can be painted free hand, or we can use precut stencils or custom designed stencils, which we design and cut in our studio.
