Amazing Illusion in Paris

Amazing mural via Mighty Optical Illusions:

Richard Murphy helped me remember a mural I had intentions of writing more about. It is trompe-l’oeil which is at Georges V Ave. in Paris, France. Trompe-l’oeil is an art technique involving extremely realistic imagery in order to create the optical illusion that the depicted objects really exist, instead of being just two-dimensional paintings. It is the same principle all those pavement artists like Eduardo Relero and Julian Beever are governed by. It is derived from French for “trick the eye,” from tromper (to deceive) and l’oeil (the eye). These surely prove that the site wasn’t photoshoped, like some of you thought…Richard added:

‘This building is on King George V in Paris. We found it by accident on the way to Champs from tower and had not seen it or heard of it before, hope you can use, its an amazing site to see.”

More – The Academy-Award nominated animated short-film by Mark Osborne tells the story of a lonely inventor, whose colorless existence is brightened only by dreams of the carefree bliss of his youth.

By day, he is trapped in a dehumanizing job in a joyless world. But by night, he tinkers away on a visionary invention, desperate to translate his inspiration into something meaningful.

When his invention is complete, it will change the way people see the world. But he will find that success comes at a high price, as it changes himself, as well.
