40 BOULEVARD DES CANUTS, LYON, FRANCE
Can you imagine walking down the road and seeing an incredible mural without even realising it? Well if you happen to be in Lyon, France, then you can do just that if you head to 40 Boulevard des Canuts. This pretty dull building has been transformed into a picturesque scene that blends perfectly with the background. It was created by French artist collective, CitéCréation.
The work was first created in 1987 and has been kept fresh along the years with various changes to allow it to blend in with the current decor choices. The optical illusion is crazy impressive when you consider what the building looked like originally - I mean… it used to be yawn central!
Here’s a few previous versions of the building along with an overlay so you can really appreciate the amount of work that’s gone into this masterpiece!
If France is a little far for you to travel, then Quebec, Canada might be a little easier for you - just head for Fresco of Quebecois to see another of their masterpieces!
