If you wonder yourself how come I’ve posted Mural optical illusion two days in a row, the answer is more than simple. Yesterday’s post inspired me to refurbish Murals category, and to give it new shine. I have collected all the mural posts from this site’s archive, and arranged them to show little icon and description inside the previously mentioned category. Feel free to jump inside “Trompe L’Oeil” Murals section (French for “Fool the Eye“), and you’ll quickly understand what am I babbling here. Related to this announcement, I have added interesting black and white/color photo I found lying on my hard drive. The photo below was manipulated to look black and white, so that the mural jumps out, which helps spotting it more easily. I adore this kind of art, and wish there were similarly painted surfaces back here where I live. Still nothing here, but I’ll keep you informed if some artist shares my idea and starts painting buildings and sidewalks :)

    This one is located in Angoulême, France.

    This city has a Comics convention so they painted lots of the town’s walls to look just like a comic.

    You need to view this from the other side of the road when the windows all line up and something special is revealed!
