Cilisos did an article regarding the murals that were done by a team of 4 artists (Ku Bad, Obi Wang, Joe Janggut and Moc) in Kuala Terengganu, commissioned by the local council MBKT.
They were clearly shocked that the entire project costed RM30,000. Assuming this was the amount paid by MBKT to the group, that’s just RM7,500 for each of em. Yes, the Obi Wang did say that the price for murals would differ from state to state, but would you guys think that there should be a standard pricing for mural projects regardless of where the project is and also if the artists are brought in from outside of the state?
And yes, we can also discuss on the pay disparity given to local artists and foreign artists.
Would love to hear what’s your take on this?February 20, 2020 at 5:58 pm #572BanggalahGuest
Yes! i would agree to standardisation of pricing, but how can this be achieved when client wants a mural not specific artist’s work. Artists are replaceable, if one dont take it, others will.February 20, 2020 at 7:14 pm #579Niama LahGuest

In an ideal situation it would be lovely to have a standardisation of pricing. But how do we get this across to all artist? Just as Banggalah mentioned, one can reject and another one can accept if desperation calls. Dealing with clients that does not understand paying correctly is such a pain in the butt.March 2, 2020 at 12:12 pm #605ciritordieGuest
Sad la if artists also cannot agree together if client underpay then reject. No deposit, reject. Late payment, padam work/don’t deliver FA.
Must unite!March 2, 2020 at 1:44 pm #607MsiaBaluGuest
@critordie, how to padam work? haha. have to order crane and all to padam a mural that scale.March 2, 2020 at 8:51 pm #608amibaGuest
i once had discussion with one artist, he concluded that it’s a personal choice of the artist when it comes to pricing.
to me this section of industry just slightly “glamour” than renovation contrators.
