French street artist Patrick Commecy (with his team) uses trompe-l’œil to bring city walls to life. This technique, that was popular during the Baroque period, focuses on depicting realistic imagery and creating optical illusions of three dimensional objects.
Commency has designed and produced more than 300 paintings in France and around the world.
“He hopes that his works can be both objects of pride for the locals who live in the cities, as well as destination goals for tourists. Commecy understands that for the frescoes to be appreciated and maintained, they must be respected and valued by all, and reflect and enhance the identities of the people who are viewing them.” via [MyModMet]
