7 most breathtaking murals in the world

7 most breathtaking murals in the world

1

Mural Street, Petit de Champlain, Quebec City

Mural Street, Petit de Champlain, Quebec City

On 102nd Street Dupetit-Plan, you will find an unknown artist painting a mural in a visual trap style (an illusion, meaning "deceptive eye"). You will feel that you are looking at the interior of a dilapidated old house, but what you are actually looking at is a series of scenes depicting the history of the neighborhood. The murals show the bombing in 1759, the landslide in 1889 and the fire in 1682.

Giant Bookshelf, Jan Is De Man, The Netherlands

Giant Bookshelf, Jan Is De Man, The Netherlands

It looks like a side of a library or a bookstore, but it is actually just an ordinary building with the largest bookshelf in the world as its facade. Street artist Jan Is De Man (Jan Is De Man) was commissioned by the building owner to create murals, so he asked local residents to name their favorite books as a feature of the work.

Mexico City Diego Rivera Carcamo de Dolores

Mexico City Diego Rivera Carcamo de Dolores

This mural may be visually stunning, but its location is even more prominent. In Chapultepec Park in Mexico City, there is a hydraulic complex called Carcamo de Dolores where the river used to supply water to the city. The building was built by architect Ricardo Rivas to pay homage to water and celebrate the use of water throughout Mexico’s history. Little-known and little-known murals can be seen inside the tunnel, and once fully submerged in water, they lead to a water tank in the center of the building. The tunnel itself and the water storage tank have been painted on all sides, telling the role of water in society. Since the mural must initially withstand a constant stream of water, the paint mixture must be tested in the laboratory to ensure that the mural will last. The mural is only a half-hour walk from Auditorio Metro Station.

The People's Progress toward Equality, Philadelphia Jared Badr

The People's Progress toward Equality, Philadelphia Jared Badr

Street art lovers in Philadelphia certainly have no shortage of works to appreciate. The term "mural mile" is used to describe the numerous murals in the city, composed of more than 3,600 designs from all over Philadelphia. Among these murals, the most famous and influential is "People's Progress towards Equality", which depicts the struggle for civil rights. Just like the murals on the Avenue de Champlain, this street art creates an illusion, allowing the viewer to glimpse the room through the side of the transparent building. These scenes powerfully portray how African-American culture was integrated into the American way of life during the reconstruction period, and Abraham Lincoln's role in the fight for equality.

Chase your dreams, Odeith, Portugal

Chase your dreams, Odeith, Portugal

Portuguese artist Odeith took optical illusion to a new level. In Chase Your Dream, painted on an unnamed wall, he uses deformation technology (dominant point manipulation) to create a 3D illusion. He is famous for the spray painting of a large number of insects, which seem to jump off the wall and scare the viewers. Although "Chasing Your Dream" is somewhat innocuous, it has become one of his most popular and recognized works. Pay attention to the shadows on the ground to make it look like an airplane pops up from the wall. You can check out some of his other eye-catching works on his website, including his popular 3D insects.

Reclining Lady Ezvigny, France

Reclining Lady Ezvigny, France

Street artist Vinie is known for incorporating elements of the natural world into her art work, and this "Lady Reclining" is no exception. The mural was created for the Magnac Eauze Street Art Festival in Eauze, southern France. The mural shows a female image of a demon, lying reclining on the grass. In keeping with Vinie's classic style, the green plants growing along the wall blend seamlessly with the character's hair and become part of the work itself.

The Crevasse, Edgar Mueller, Dún Laoghaire, Ireland

The Crevasse, Edgar Mueller, Dún Laoghaire, Ireland

This work was created in 2008 during the "World Culture Festival" held in Dun Laoghaire, and is perhaps the best example of a linear perspective in the street art world. If you are worried about your height, this piece may make you stand by your side and sweat. Edgar Muller's manipulation of vertical lines creates a convincing illusion that the audience is about to step down a steep ledge and fall into a dark abyss.
