Romeo and Juliet

Architecture witnesses history. People come and go, but buildings last a bit longer—some of them for centuries. French street artist Patrick Commecy recognizes this and has been creating colossal murals on big buildings to allude to it. Painted in a very realistic way, these large-scale murals make us think, puzzles us, entertain us or reminds us of long gone history.

He employs the art of trompe-l’œil. A technique that mainly uses visual illusions to trick the eye into perceiving a painted detail as a three-dimensional object. His subjects range widely. You can find worlds of cinema, chivalry scenes, historical vignettes, and many everyday scenes.

Would you like to see the boring empty walls in your neighborhood flaunting Mr. Commecy scenes? I know I would.
