Dilapidated old buildings are mood-killers when we pass streets, and even some fine architectures have boring facades, now Patrick Commecy and his team of muralists turn these deadly facades around France into vibrant scenes full of life. In his paintings on wall, there are people talking through balconies, staring at streets. They are so lively and hyper realistic. You might think you really see a stone turret or a bunch of celebrities hanging out on a balcony.
This is so awesome, check them out!
