Mural: Trompe L’oeil

"Monumental Mural Art" by John Pugh

Known as a “Trompe L’oeil” (“deceive the eye”) artist, John Pugh paints photorealistic scenes onto walls with a small twist.  The murals feature people stand standing in the foreground, staring at the optical illusion, lending the pieces an added depth.
"I have found that the 'language' of life-size illusions allow me to communicate with a very large audience. It seems almost universal that people take delight in being visually tricked. Once captivated by the illusion, the viewers are lured to cross an artistic threshold and thus seduced into exploring the concept of the piece."
