World's Largest Mural Stats

The largest indoor mural measures 1,002 m² (9,731 ft²) and was painted by six artists in 7 days from February 27, 2005 at Shyam Vatika, Saraswati Estate, Cimmco Tiraha, Gwalior, India. The painting was co-ordinated by a professional mural artist (Aasutosh Panigrahi) and the owner of the place R P Maheshwary and Ankur Maheshwary. The six artists led by Aasutosh Panigrahi broke a previously held Australian record. The previous largest indoor mural measured 727.52 m² (7,830.96 ft²) and was located at Youth Club, Bernie, Tasmania, Australia on 30 June 2004.

The art features on all interior walls and ceilings of a privately owned auditorium, Shyam Vatika, which is used for banquet purposes. The art was purposefully done to break a previously held record. In August 2005 the art was appraised by Guinness World Records as the "World's Largest Indoor Mural".

ABU DHABI, Nov. 27 (WAM) - |In a country that is planning the world's tallest building and a series of mammoth off-shore tourist attractions, it is only fitting that the United Arab Emirates (UAE) is also set on creating one of the biggest pieces of public artwork ever made, according to a report in ‘Gulf News'.

Especially when you consider that the work, a 1,500-foot mural, will represent the rapid development of the country into one of the leading players in the region. The artist bidding to put together the massive mural is Liaqat Ali Khan, a prominent Pakistani artist who has painted more than 1,000 official portraits of President Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan. He is behind many public works commemorating National Day and Accession Day.
