The Mural Co. is Beautifying America One Mural at a Time

By Jake Levin

In both public and private domains, Rye Quartz is fulfilling his goal of beautifying America.

The founder, creative director and a muralist himself at The Mural Co. in San Francisco, Quartz and his team custom design murals throughout the Bay Area, southern California and beyond. The group can respond to any type of creative brief, vision or space, Quartz said, with the results always unique yet always satisfying.

"We pride ourselves in being able to respond to any type of creative brief, vision, or space," Quartz said. "What that results in is us creating a wide array of different styles of artwork from geometric to abstract to realism to typography to cartoon to graffiti, and everything in between. One thread that remains consistent within our artwork is our aim to create positive, inspiring and uplifting murals."

Open since 2015, the majority of artists at The Mural Co. hail from a background in art spanning decades before that. Quartz said his team is among the most diverse and talented in the field and has a knack for pushing the edge of anything they've previously created.

"We are outcome driven and the quality of our work is the most important thing to us as artists," he said. "For all of these reasons clients trust our expertise to successfully bring their vision to life."

The benefits of murals are huge, Quartz said, as they have the power to transform and enhance a space in both the grand scheme of things but also in more subtle ways. For businesses, murals inspire more workplace creativity, as well as add greater marketing potential and branding opportunities. The murals create public recognition in a business, he said.

For communities, the murals provide a source of pride for people to rally around. They can enhance the quality of life for residents, Quartz said, and bring attention to under-utilized or neglected spaces. There are economic benefits as well, he said.

Galleries of some works produced by The Mural Co. are available on its website,
