I have been working with ABG and Trent Thompson for the past 7 months or so and they have been awesome to work with. Trent  coordinates with the artists on art and mural projects and has a great group of artists he works with. It’s great for our properties and it's cool to spruce up listings to improve photography and increase the value of projects.

"I had the pleasure to work with Trent Thompson and ABG with the installation of a mural on our building, the largest one in downtown Livermore. Painting the biggest mural in the city on your building can come with some real trepidation, but Trent kept us informed throughout the process and we felt comfortable trusting him with the project. It required buy-in and strong coordination with our board of directors, donors, the staff, the city council and city staff. I was extremely pleased with the results. The mural was very well-done and they were very accommodating to our needs. I still feel a great sense of pride and joy every time I walk by it. I would highly recommend this creative and supportive team led by Trent. "

“Our team was looking for a creative way to add some personality to our mixed use development project.  


We had a drab wall nearly 400ft long which we engaged Trent and his ABG team to design and paint a mural representative of the city.


Their design was spot on and the execution was within a couple weeks from initial call to completed mural.  We are already in discussions about future work.”

"ABG has been great to work with on personal and professional projects over the last couple of years.


Trent Thompson has been on time and on point with a varied amount of small and larger projects.  He has excelled as an individual artist and also has been able to to project manage larger projects. 


Looking forward to working with Trent and this ABG team on many more pieces going forward."
