    Great post! My personal favorite from the recent past is the 3D Park “Qui Croire?” by French artist François Abélanet. You can read about it here:

    Really amazing collection of street art. I especially like the floor pieces where you can see a lot more depth in the illustrations. I thinks it’s amazing that these artists have taken the time to create pieces of art with great attention, detail and I’m sure a lot of patience! My favourites have to be Lurking in the Sewer, Shanghai and City Lock.

    I love Trompe l’oeuil but interestingly not a Banksy to be seen.

    I just love this kind of pieces. They are so realistic. But what a pity, I haven’t seen such creations with my own eyes yet.
