True Talent

Eric Grohe works...simply amazing!
(Click on picture to enlarge)


Before... (typical concrete & stucco facade)



Preparing the canvas - by plastering the wall surface.
The wall starts to take on a 3-dimensional appearance.



Eric in his element, 30' off the ground. He does most of the artwork by himself & researches, paints and designs each project from scratch. His wife Kathy, also an artist, serves as project manager.

As you say true talent! They are absolutely amazing! Thanks for posting them.
I may have seen his work on the internet webbything somewhere before or someone who does the same thing and it's a fantastic effect.
I really like the last one - superb!
Have a good weekend.

That's cool, like the guys who draw holes in the sidewalks and they look so real that people walk around them.

Rastaman said...

Love them! The 'downtown' area where I live has a number of murals painted on old bare walls, but nothing as elaborate as Grohe's work. Thanks for posting these.

Peace and hugs to you Babygirl!
