Have you ever looked at a wall painting so lifelike you’d think it’s actually real? Well, that’s what some artists are becoming hooked to doing these days. Realistic murals, also known as 3D murals, offer more than just art on the wall-they mirror the image of what real life is all about.
Eric Grohe is only one of the many artists who are into creating 3D murals. Most of his subjects are famous buildings and structures, which, at first look like they’ve been photographed. His only giveaway is that his characters look more comical than real people-but then again, it’s like they’ve been cut out from magazine pages and superimposed on the paintings.
He calls his works urban transformations, as indeed they depict real life in a more static perspective, waiting for change to come. While some find his works creepy because they look more like a parallel universe, most are simply amazed by his realistic murals that even seem to have a life of their own.
