John Pugh - Artist Extraordinaire

John Pugh is at it again.  THIS IS INCREDIBLE!  HIS ART TRICKS YOUR EYES.....

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.

Honolulu, Hawaii. This mural took two months of studio work to plan and another six months to execute with the help of 11 other artists. Featured are Queen Liliuokalani, the last monarch of the Hawaiian Islands, and Duke Kahanamoku, the ultimate father of surfing.

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 (she's part of the painting - hard to believe).

Twenty-nine Palms, California. "Valentine" the bull and a patient buzzard are waiting for the artist to awake
(again - they are all part of the art)!

'Bay in a Bottle', Santa Cruz, California.
The passer-by is part of the mural.

Looks like a nice spot to rest your weary feet on a sidewalk in front of the Sarasota County Health Center, Florida.

"Slowin' Down to Take a Look" in Winslow, Arizona. Included, of course, is "a girl in a flat bed Ford slowin' down to take a look at me."
