My Clients Say:

  • "Thank you, Sotir! Sparta Township is very happy with our beautiful wall! You listened to all of our many ideas and brought them together in such a creative artistic way".
Rachel, Township Treasurer
  • “I would definitely recommend Sotir! 
When our former CEO and owner, Gus Armstrong,  passed away I called Sotir to help us out with decorating a meeting room and give it the feel of an Alaska vacation place where Gus spent all his summers with Family and employees. I wanted to replicate the Lodge and the outside landscape. Sotir truly immersed himself in our culture and family stories, and it resulted in stunning murals that truly represent the soul of the place. Thanks Sotir for your passion and endless hours on this project!” 
Patricia, Three Rivers, MI      


  • “Sotir, your murals in both of my loft rooms are magnificent.  Everyone who visits is blown away when they see them. Though the model train layout is also magnificent, it is your murals that really seems to catch everyone’s attention first. After they look at them for a few minutes, they are awed when they realize how you have made the corners and angles of our Gambrel barn roof virtually disappear into the painting.  Your murals are masterpieces that have fare exceeded our expectations.”
Jack Buchanan, Grand Rapids, MI
  • We were totally blown away by the unique and creative elements that Mural by Design, Grand Rapids, MI,  inventively incorporated into our murals. We are super pleased with Sotir's work and would not consider working with any other artist to try and achieve the style and theme of which he successfully goes after for our businesses. He accepted our suggestions to critique the work he has done for us with utmost professionalism and respect. He is filled with honesty and integrity to trust to enter into our building at all hours of the day. We love working with Sotir. He is a part of our Anna's House opening team!

  • Sotir, the owner of Mural by Design, Grand Rapids, MI,  has been a very long time since I've seen someone so passionate about their work!  It was refreshing to watch such a talented artist at work day after day, and your quality of work speaks for itself."  We look forward to working with your company Mural by Design again in the future.

  • Sotir, the muralist from Mural by Design, Grand Rapids, MI, painted a remarkable mural in our daughter's nursery room and transformed the ordinary walls into a magical place with scenes from "Bambi," Walt Disney's famous first fully animate movie.  When we moved and put the house for sale, the mural became a major attraction for buyers with children. It took us less than 6 months to sell the house at a time when the housing market was crashing.  Our daughter loved that mural; so, we had Mural by Design paint the same mural again, but this time on a 12 x 6 feet canvas so we could take it with us the next time we moved. We can't wait for Sotir to come to Virginia and paint us a custom mural with images from West Michigan and Upper Peninsula.

  • I hired Mural by Design, Grand Rapids, MI,  to paint some interior walls of my home.  Sotir suggested a treatment known as "Venetian Plaster" technique, and he created  a beautiful surface using this technique on accent walls.  I was very happy with his work and the walls are gorgeous.  Sotir worked fast and finished quickly, and there was little disruption.  He is professional, creative, and a very hard worker.
