These 3D Murals Look Like They're A Part of The City, But They're Not

These 3D Murals Look Like They're A Part of The City, But They're Not

The talent of John Pugh is noticeable from far distances, as it is from near ones. His murals are 3D and extremely realistic that they seem to be the entry way to worlds that don't actually exist in the city. He first started showcasing his murals around the city in the late 1970s. In fact, his mural style was so particular and unique that it sparked the term Narrative Illusionism.

What's even more spectacular about Pugh's murals, other than the obvious, is that he tailors each mural to the city or place that it's being painted in. So that it is an accurate representation and celebration of the area. 

"If the mural can serve to educate about the culture and heritage of a place, it will deepen roots, and create a pride of place. This inspires new possibilities, the sharing of ideas, and assist in bridging cultural gaps in the community."

This one is my personal favorite; the way it juts out into the city.

Would you believe me if I told you that the dog and the woman looking in are all a part of the mural? Well, believe it.
