More Spectacular Trompe L'Oeil Murals

We last looked at some gorgeous Trompe L'Oeil Murals in June.

Here's some more spectacular outdoor Trump L'Oeil paintings, from the same artist:  Eric Grohe.
(These were circulating via email without any artist credit).

Here's a before and after photo of a mall exterior wall:

Be sure to see what he did in downtown Bucyrus, as well as his work at the Miller Brewing Company in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Oh, and the before and after photos of an outdoor parking garage

Way cool!

Hi
Excellent mural, seems almost real...

By the way.... This technique is called "Trompe l'oeil", (to 'cheat' the eye) from the french verb "tromper" (i.e. to give a false impression), used to give a tridimensional impression.

Try the "Gates of Paradise" from Sta Maria dei Fiori Cathedral in Florence, Italy... Just fantastic !!

In case anyone is interested in where this actually is, it's the Prime Outlets mall in Niagara Falls, NY. I recognize it because I live about five minutes away from it, and I remember when they were doing the painting of it. It's really cool up close and in person. I can provide additional pictures if anyone's interested in seeing more detail of it.
