Please note:
My murals are murals in the truest sense of the word - original artworks painted directly on the wall itself ("wall" in French is "le mur").
They are not mass-produced, they cannot be shipped.
Each mural is one-of-a-kind, and has been designed to fit the architecture of the space (corners, doors, windows, furniture) and naturally has required me to travel to the space with my materials to execute the mural.

I understand that, by nature, murals are ephemeral, in time with a change of owner, they do run the risk of being painted over.

The word mural now has a more expanded definition of being any wallcovering (wallpaper, vinyl, fabric like curtains, large posters on paper).
As noted above, my murals are ONLY artworks painted directly on walls.

If you want artwork that is moveable (ie. not permanent to the space), that would be a painting on a stretched canvas (the wooden stretcher also functions as a framework).
Additional framing is not required in order to hang or transport the painting.
In my opinion, the canvas should NEVER be removed from the stretcher (ie. don't roll up an original painting on canvas).

Note: Works on PAPER are traditionally framed with glass on top of the artwork.
Works on canvas are NOT framed with glass, the painted-on-stretched-canvas artwork should be able to "breathe".
Naturally the surface of the painting should not be touched with fingers (naturally occurring oils) nor should it ever be washed (NEVER!).
If there is a dust build-up, then wipe very gently with a soft cloth.
Do not hang where there is direct sunlight, as it will fade the painting over time.
