Recently Rochester, NY has decided that wall murals would be a good thing for the many blank or unsightly buildings in the city. Great idea, but I would suggest we raise the bar high, REALLY high. Check out this blog, which has what I consider to be the definitive collection of images of the Eric Grohe’s 3D wall murals/paintings in Columbus, Ohio, USA (including many before and after comparisons). I would create a post myself, but that would be pointlessly repetitive. Frankly, THIS is the kind of art that not only beautifies buildings but creates tourist attractions that make towns famous, not the artsy-fartsy stuff that usually passes for art around here.
Sooo, just click on the title of this post and it will take you there, just avoid the comments sections because the blog is not being tended and spam filtering was not enabled to there is little useful down there.
