What is Mural Painters Inc?

Who Owns Mural Painters Inc?
Mural Painter Inc was founded in 2009 by Emily Strauss and the company was originally named Design Team NYC. Before starting her company, Emily received a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the Fashion Institute of Technology and ran her own fashion business, Vandalize Apparel which specialized in hand painted clothing.
Emily’s entrepreneurial journey has always been rooted in perseverance. After being diagnosed with late-stage Lyme Disease, Emily was forced to drop out of high school and was too weak to even paint. But Emily never gave up, and after years of medical treatment she earned her GED and went to college for art.
Emily noticed how murals had made a resurgence in cities and she channeled her positive attitude into becoming an artistic entrepreneur. While most mural companies only accept large projects, Mural Painter Inc uses a collaboration of artists, designers and managers to focus on small and medium jobs.
