We got an email this morning from a colleague telling us we had to check out the 3D street art of John Pugh. Or as Pugh calls it, "Monumental Mural Art." He practices the technique of trompe l'oeil, a technique that involves extremely realistic images creating an optical illusion that makes objects appear in 3D.
As Pugh says of his work, "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."
