Studio Taddei designates the area of my work which encompasses the decorative arts: Mural Painting, Faux Finishes and Trompe l'Oeil. All of the samples you will see in this section represent prototypes which can be custom ordered to your own specifications and individual needs at reasonable prices, based on square footage, per diem, or depending on the complexity of the design.
  My interest and involvement with the decorative arts began in 1968 while still in Architecture School at Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, when I was introduced to Edward Melcarth, an accomplished fine artist who was beginning a grand mural project at the Hotel Pierre in New York, and needed assistants. I was immediately hired and subsequently was introduced to the heretofore unknown worlds of Trompe l'Oeil and epic-scale painting. Later, after a lengthy apprenticeship period with such masters as Edgar Berne and Piero Yengo, I incorporated my own artistic techniques and started my own business in 1980.
