Trompe L'oeil

Interactive Street Trompe L'oeil


From an unknown artist we have a series of paintings that all look like they have been drawn in the same city, perhaps even on the same street. These Trompe L'oeil are quite interactive and pedestrians alike seem to enjoy taking part in some of the illusions. One more bonus image of a beautiful lady blending in with a wall using body paint.

This invisible set of stairs have been graffiti'd on a wall and floor in a very artistic way. The splatter-paint effect gives a nice comic-like feel to what otherwise would have been a dull white hallway.
