Visual Arts: Murals, Painting
Alison Hamil is a mural artist in Atlanta, Georgia. Most of her work incorporates bold colors combined with elements of painterly realism and uplifting quotes and phrases. Alison's style is most recognizable for her signature sunburst pattern seen in the background of many of her murals. Nature is also a common theme in her work, as well as interconnectivity and spirituality.
Hamil has been awarded several public art commissions from the City of Atlanta, the City of Brookhaven, and the City of Roswell, Georgia. She has also painted murals in various places across the globe including Nicoya, Costa Rica, and Kefalonia, Greece. Creative Loafing named her Best Emerging Visual Artist in their Best of Atlanta 2013 edition, and the Blue Heron Nature Preserve in Buckhead, Georgia awarded her the honor of 2020 Artist in Residence, where she has painted three murals throughout the property.
Some of her other notable clients include Emory Saint Joseph’s Hospital, Fulton County Public Schools, Pianos for Peace, and The Georgia Center for Child Advocacy. Whether working as a mural artist for the private or public sector, Hamil specializes in transforming mundane, forgotten spaces such as parking decks, stairwells, and bathrooms into beautiful works of art. Her work brightens the everyday experiences of people as they pass through these spaces, and she continues to make quite an impact on communities throughout the metro-Atlanta area.
