STELLA MURALS' GLOW IN THE DARK STAR STORY THE ART OF ESTHER IRANYI

In 2011 I was one of the very first artists to paint glow in the dark art in the world. Since then all my work with glow in the dark medium has been to try to create the most realistic and impressive glow in the dark artwork.

Six years ago everything was exciting and new. Together with some amazing customers I was encouraged to make artworks that were not only new in technique but also original in that the nebulas, star clusters and comets had never been painted in real glowing light before.

It all began with an earthquake in New Zealand…

In February 2011, Christchurch New Zealand had the most destructive earthquake in our memory. We were always told there was a large alpine fault line through the entire South Island of NZ that could go off at any time, but never that there were fault lines beneath our city. No one knew. That afternoon, we were hit with a large earthquake that shut down the Christchurch CBD for two years.

The central city close to where we lived was instantly abandoned, and dark at night. Today it is still being rebuilt.

There were power blackouts in the weeks that followed in all the surrounding suburbs.
It was then above the newly darkened Christchurch that the night skies were at their brightest. The city lights had gone out leaving the sky with little light pollution.
All the constellations of summer were passing overhead with a spectacular Milky Way.
I learnt the skies with star maps and a torch with red cellophane over it.

Aftershocks continued for the next year and when we were woken at night I often crept outside for a quick look at the sky. I loved the solitude of the night and the adventure of discovering the night sky for the first time. Waiting for new constellations to rise, watching for the planets, comets. It was a year of space stations tracking across the sky and trying to stay awake for meteor showers.
I remember while being barefoot and standing in the soft silky dust of earthquake liquefaction at night, I saw the prettiest white shooting star ever. It had little white break-away sparkles as it fell.

Those first impressions were captured and as an artist I wanted to paint them as large full scale ceiling murals.
Because glow in the dark art was also new, it was more than a year of trial and error. I painted our ceilings and sanded them back, painted them again many times. I was trying to make the most realistic murals of the skies I saw outside. That first year was also spent waking up many times every night to check and plan adjustments to the work I'd painted the previous day. Sometimes there wasn't enough wall space and sometimes the room glowed with so much light, there were shadows.

From painting star murals on location I then worked to create completely new unique products that would reach people outside of Christchurch, and all over the world.
The years I spent painting ceilings became invaluable experience when it came to designing the products I make now.

I’ve pretty much loved every moment painting glow in the dark stars and sharing with customers who have also not seen art like this before. I love making art that is exclusively original to Stella Murals.

Today there are many ways you can decorate with the stars I’ve painted for you.


⭐ Glow in the Dark Star Bed Canopies will surround your bed in a soft delicate fabric of glowing stars. 



⭐ Star Ceiling Canopies are light and airy bedroom décor that will also transform your night time ceiling with beautiful glow in the dark star fields. They are a sheer white glossy fabric and come with small pins.



⭐ Peel and Stick Self Adhesive Star Murals are matt white and are painted on the most advanced mural material for easy application and damage free removal. They are reusable. 



⭐ DIY Star Ceilings are kits that consist of hundreds of individual star stickers and are teamed up with larger peel and stick feature decals like Moons and comets. You can choose the size and also arrange your star ceiling to look exactly how you like it.



⭐ Star Posters are painted onto transparent plastic with adhesive tabs on the back ready to stick.



All orders have the optional addition of hundreds of extra star stickers to create glowing layers of depth or to easily expand the size of your night sky. These star stickers are as realistic and bright as other artwork I paint but leave room for you to design your own glowing skies. 



Feel free to contact me with custom art requests. I'd love to work with any ideas you may have.

Best wishes and clear starry skies!



Esther :)

Frequently asked questions

Custom and personalised orders

I love painting custom art and there are many ways to cover your ceiling or walls with glow in the dark stars.

Choose a product, decide on a size and think about a design!

For ideas check out the art gallery here: https://stellamurals.com/pages/gallery

I'm usually able to paint, photograph and set up a reserved listing within a week.

All custom works are shipped with a 6 working day courier.

Contact me and let's get started!

Charging it up

Stella Murals' products glow 12+ hours, all night.

Everything is best charged using sunlight, daylight and/or using a bright light to top up the glow before bedtime.

Most rooms have perfect lighting conditions and the stars will glow without extra help.

If you have a dark room/basement/home theatre you may need to compensate by making sure the stars are placed in bright direct light. A floor lamp directed at the ceiling is one easy solution.

Well lit space = Bright glow.

More on charging here:

Glow colour

Glow colour can only be seen when fully charged.
This is a standard feature of all glow in the dark paints.

The afterglow is a white colour that lasts 12+ hours.

The daytime colour of the paints is an off-white yellow.

Installation

Every item comes with adhesives/attachments and is removable and reusable.

Some items will only stick to flat surfaces and not heavily textured ceilings.

If in doubt ask me or send a pic :)

Background ceiling/wall colour

Most glow in the dark products work and display best on white or light coloured backgrounds.
White reflects the light, it helps with charging and to reflect the glow.

The star stickers are a whitish daytime colour, they blend best on white backgrounds. They can be seen on darker surfaces as tiny dots but are also guaranteed to glow on coloured surfaces.

The decals and murals are white, in the daytime they blend best onto white backgrounds.

The posters are transparent. The wall posters come with clear adhesive tabs, the ceiling posters come with white adhesive tabs.
