Mosaic Artist Spotlight ~ Allan Punto of Arto Punto

Allan Punto of Arto Punto shared some photos from an installation in London, UK.
He built the mosaic on No Days Mosaic Mesh before transporting to the installation site for permanent adhesive using mortar.
8' x 2' mosaic created by Allan Punto of Arto Punto
on No Days Mosaic Mesh
"Here is a photo of the installed mosaic in London that I prepared using No Days Mosaic Mesh. The size is 8 feet by 2 feet and the tiles are Winckelman porcelain and Sicis glass. I used Rocatex Rapid Set adhesive and Grout."
Allan built the mosaic on No Days Mesh and cut it into 16 sections
to make installation easier.
"The panel was constructed in 16 sections to make transportation and installation straightforward. Prior to installation the sections were laid in situ for the client to make sure she was happy with the tones of the panel. She liked it all but decided that a softer blue would work better than the white in the big flower. This was not a problem because I had used mosaic mesh!"
Detail shot of the mosaic tiles that needed to be changed out
at the customer's request. Changing the tiles is easy by reheating
the adhesive and quickly switching out the design.

"A particular benefit for this installation of using the mosaic mesh was the easy process of changing a layer of cut tile in the big flower below to change the tone at the request of the customer. I just needed to reheat the individual pieces, remove them and replace them with a softer blue in place of white."
