My Business Is Looking Up

                   About The Startist

Hello and welcome once again to StarMurals. I am Rip Read – The Startist. Here’s where I get the opportunity to tell you a few things about myself and about the incredible 5 year development of my extraordinary art.

For most of my adult life I have been involved in sales, marketing, management and consulting. I also spent many years in show business, in a variety of roles, from the business and management side to writing and producing. I was also a popular and well-known Las Vegas humorist…no joke…back in the 80’s.

I’ve always been interested in art and the arts…my entire life. Until about 5 years ago, I had not found a special “medium” for my creativity…now I have…and I love every minute of it…I’m truly living my dream.

A fortuitous set of circumstances led to my discovery of this most unique art form…and I was instantly hooked. Extensive research revealed that the others in this nearly unknown field had a great concept…but everything they did was wrong…from my point of view. I decided to make it my life’s work to evolve what others had started into a true world-class fine art.
My Business Is Looking Up  

The end result is that I have single-handedly created a highly refined and elegant form of art from crude beginnings. I found that all of the others were using the wrong materials, wrong tools, wrong techniques and, most importantly, the wrong business approach. I set out to change all of that…and it has sure been a long and quite arduous process. But, I couldn’t be happier with the results. I can now honestly say that I am the world’s best star muralist…light years ahead of the rest. My StarMurals are the absolute state-of-the-art…none of the others, can even come close.

I am a completely self-taught artist…no formal art education…yet my clients say my work is brilliant…many thanks to them for supplying my training canvasses…in the form of their ceilings, walls and other spaces…and for trusting me and believing in my ability to deliver a dazzling product.

Over the past 5 years I have created over 300 StarMurals in a wide variety of settings, from master bedrooms and suites to guest rooms and childrenís bedrooms. Iíve painted StarMurals in bathrooms, massage and meditation rooms and many home theatres. Iíve created StarMurals in hotels, restaurants, bed and breakfast inns, even a rotating home and a childrenís hospice. I consider every project to be a special opportunity to design and deliver a truly unique, one of a kind work of art for my clients.

As you can no doubt tell by now, I love my work. Itís like I finally figured out what I want to be when I grow up. These days there is literally nothing I would rather do. Creating luxurious and vibrant StarMurals in my clientís most intimate and private spaces is truly my lifeís work. Iím looking forward to having the opportunity to design and create a very special StarMural for you or your client, in the near future.
