Currents Mural by John Pugh

Trompe L'oeil 23 July 2015 0 Comments

John Pugh creates large public trompe l’oeil murals that are meant to look like realistic scenes.  In a personal artist statement, John says that:

Public art is of great interest to me; providing me with a sense of purpose as it is a very powerful form of communication. It can link people together, stimulate a sense of pride within the community, and introduce the viewer to new ideas and perspectives.

The mural below shows a couple of uniformed police officers interacting with two different sets of individuals.

Here is what the side of the building looked like before John installed his mural.  It was a very drab and boring gray brick wall with some very unimpressive landscaping placed in front of it.
