Graham Murtough


Over the years I have freelanced and collaborated with several major artists and designers.  I offer a selection of images of some of the most memorable work I have created with them, where I played a part in bringing their visions to life.


Lil Nas X No One Showed Up to My Baby Shower

Production Designer Michelle Paterson brought me on as Set Decorator, Buyer, Floral Designer and Set Dresser for this wonderful short promo piece for Lil Nas X' recent album release, Montero.  It was such an honor and a blast to work with Michelle, Lil Nas X, Hodo Musa and their incredible team.

This was the first job I did with Production Designer Michelle Paterson.  She brought me on as assitant Buyer, Floral Designer and Set Dresser for this live recording session.  It was the first of many collaborations with her and led to the next few jobs we did with Lil Nas X.

This was a Surprise Birthday Party for a well know art collector who is allegeric to flowers.  What you see here is 

entirely props, fruit, handmade art objects and artificial flowers.  I supervised the making of all the elements and was quality control throughout the project, including the setting of the event.  One of my all time favorite creative collaborations.

For this private event we supplied and styled all props in this image.

For this event, Shane, myself and the whole team created a large Stage set.  I worked from the begining 

with concept drawings, water colors and the entire build process. I largely supervised the making of the set, 

and was a essential lead desginer and dresser for the install.
