3D Murals Painted on the Sides of Buildings

3D murals painted on the sides of buildings by trompe l'oeil (trick-of-the-eye) artist John Pugh:
Main Street, Los Gatos, California. Even the woman 

peering into the ruin is part of the mural.
Taylor Hall, California State University, Chico, California. 

The Doric-style columns are actually nothing but paint.

This mural at the Cafe Trompe L'oeil, San Jose, California, 
is entitled "Art Imitating Life Imitating Art Imitating Life."
This customer doesn't leave at closing time. And, there 
is no doorway or stairs to go through or climb... and the statue never needs dusting.

Twenty-nine Palms, California. Valentine the bull and a patient buzzard are waiting for the artist to awake. No way... yep, way. This is all painting. Check along the base of the wall and you can see the seam between the vertical wall and the paved parking lot. How real can it get. Just outstanding.
