We make it easy for muralists to connect with the people who control the wall space. We take care of the legwork, so you can spend more time creating.
By creating connections and facilitating all aspects of the project on behalf of both parties, our practice thrives around an all-encompassing platform where property owners and artists feel safe and supported. We take care of legalities, insurance, equipment, logistics and more. All you need to do is connect to make your vision a reality.

Stop wasting precious time and energy pounding the streets. Browse the latest new mural commissions before they hit the open market. Connect directly with owners and decision-makers who control the space.
Put yourself out there by sending proposals for projects.
Our mission is to generate positive energy in our local communities, by getting more artists in front of more walls.
WXLLSPACE is a marketplace platform that connects muralists and street artists to legal and commissioned spaces for creative placemaking.
The WXLLSPACE platform was created with the intent of reversing the way the mural process was done. Normally artists are canvassing neighborhoods tracking down property stakeholders or if they have a well established portfolio, are chosen for projects. This platform was created to bring artist to these owners to level the playing field and give more opportunities to the creatives in places they otherwise may not have had.
When an artists submits a proposal for a wall, we receive the inquiry and present your proposal to the owner. We modeled the platform this way, to level the playing field so artist are not only properly valuing their work, but so that owners are provided a range of artists that are available and within budget.
We do not curate any projects as we do not want to be biased of any persons work. We’ve developed this so artists are provided with a fair and equal opportunity to create.
In just a few steps, you can submit a proposed budget to the owner of the property you are interested in.
Simply, search the map by selecting your city and type of wall you are interested in. Hit “SEARCH”.
Click through the pages, find a wall in a location that interests you
Once you see a wall you are interested in, review the listing by checking out the stats of the wall. Building composition, size, total square feet and what accommodations are on site. We provided these details so you can give a fair estimated quote for the wall.
Click the RESERVE button – this will take you to “RESERVE A WALL” page. (We are working on syndicating the listing ID to the reserve form).
On the Reserve A Wall Page, fill out the form per the project details. Using the wall dimensions, submit your proposal based on the project/wall size. Feel free to use the calculator for some quick math.
Submit the reservation!
Yes, you can reserve any community wall. To Reserve a wall, provide your information to the curator, upload your portfolio info or any previous work and await an approval. We will introduce the curator or owner to your work. Once approved you can start painting as soon as the property is available.
A commissioned wall is simply a wall where the owner has allowed WXLLSPACE to market the property for a mural project.
A community wall is a wall that an owner has allowed WXLLSPACE to market for artwork. These walls are approved but there is no payment. It’s all up to the artist to supply the travel to/from the site, ladders, scaffolding, materials, supplies, paint, setup, cleanup, insurance. The property owner does not have the opportunity of artistic input if no money is exchanged. All murals must be created for all ages of eyes unless under explicitly determined & agreed upon circumstances by all involved in its creation and experience afterward. In the even you want to paint a piece in a new city or just need to bring a new style to life, reserve a community wall near you.
All of the walls on the WXLLSPACE platform are available to paint.
Please read descriptions thoroughly to understand the complete scope of the project.
WXLLSPACE bills a commission fee to the property owner based on your project quote – that way you are paid what you are owed for your work.
Owners sign a non-compete when marketing their space on the WXLLSPACE platform. In our agreement it is strictly forbidden to shop another person’s Intellectual property for a better “price”.
Once we receive a submission of a project, we immediately submit permit applications for approval.
All commissioned artists are provided with a Space Pass, in the event you have any issues with authorities, just scan the custom QR code which brings up the permission agreement, permit info and contact of any WXLLSPACE.
