About Luxmuralis

Artist Peter Walker and composer David Harper are an artistic collaboration called ‘Luxmuralis’ (which means ‘Light Murals’).

Through Son-et- Lumiere, sculpture and sound art pieces they transform and reinterpret the sense of place and space in various locations, creatively helping members of the public to take a physical and emotional journey to identify with the subject and message of the artwork.

Previous work by Luxmuralis has been seen in Germany, Italy, Minnesota in USA, and throughout the UK creating spectacular events, their work has included many UK Cathedrals such as Salisbury, Westminster Abbey, Sheffield, Lichfield to name but a few.

Luxmuralis brought their show, The Angels are Coming, to Peterborough Cathedral in November 2021.
