Patrick Commecy, a talented street artist from France, makes these mind-bending hyper-realistic wall paintings. The before and after photos show the big difference these murals create.

I wish he did this in my city too.
For sixteen days, from June 18 to July 3, 2016, Italy’s Lake Iseo will be reimagined. A three-kilometer walkway made of a modular floating dock system of 220,000 high-density polyethylene cubes and wrapped into shimmering yellow fabric will be stretched on the waters of this beautiful lake. The authors of the project were artists Christo and Jeanne-Claude who first conceived it together in 1970.
