MJ Atelier

Plaster & watercolour

Maria Apelo Cruz, the creative director of MJ Atelier, is an artist whose skills often seem a rarity in the modern age. Cruz is trained to the highest level in figurative and Old Masters painting, dedicating over thirty years to learning the techniques of artistic forefathers.


Using skills akin to those used by the Renaissance artists, she composes classical scenes to create illusions of space and depth. Cruz is unique in her progressive techniques, having researched and developed an innovative, patented technique for sculptural plaster, which has now become a trademark of her work.

Sample Artworks

To fully appreciate the subtle qualities of each artwork, the Artist has produced a small selection of sample artworks for our art consutlancy, available to loan on request. 

Discover the Artist for Your Project

Artist Walls evolved from Artelier’s experience as art consultants for exclusive private residential and superyacht projects; such clients seek wall finishes that go beyond the familiar idea of the feature wall, and push the possibilities of bespoke elements in interiors.

Our Artist Walls collection reinvents the concept of the feature wall – Artist Walls are large-scale artworks that are not only striking wall finishes, but customised collectors' pieces made by leading artists.
