Handpainted ceiling art has been incredibly impressive and extremely exclusive for centuries, it has graced the ceilings of royals and gentry since before 1600. Yet, with the modern techniques and new designs brought in by Volta, ceiling art is now even more desirable and accessible than ever before.
The skilled craftsmen at Volta combine traditional skills and modern design in perfect harmony. They are equally at home swooshing hand-made paintbrushes with a flourish as they are intricately designing modern masterpieces on state of the art computer programs. They are artists, craftsmen and technicians, painting and fitting ceiling canvases from enormous, truly breathtaking centerpieces to gorgeous intricate modern décor complementary pieces.
