Trompe l’oeil murals: wall paintings with optical illusion
"Deceptive Walls"

In this gallery you will see some of my trompe l’oeil murals: paintings in which the depicted scene appears to take place in a space beyond the wall or the ceiling but, nevertheless, are consistent with environment. These optical illusions are due to the fact that the elements of the pictures are drawn in order to be in perspective for the eyes of the observer.
