Amazing Public Art–John Pugh

3D murals painted on the sides of buildings by artist John Pugh

Main Street , Los Gatos , California . Even the woman peering into the ruin is part of the mural.

Taylor Hall, California State University , Chico , California . The Doric-style columns are actually nothing but paint.

Honolulu , Hawaii . This mural took two months of studio work to plan and another six months to execute with the help of 11 other artists. Featured are Queen Liliuokalani, the last monarch of the Hawaiian Islands , and Duke Kahanamoku, the ultimate father of surfing.

This mural at the Cafe Trompe L’oeil, San Jose , California , is entitled “Art Imitating Life Imitating Art Imitating Life”. ┬áThis customer doesn’t leave at closing time.

Twenty-nine Palms, California . Valentine the bull and a patient buzzard are waiting for the artist to awake.

Bay in a Bottle, Santa Cruz , California . The passer-by is part of the mural.

Looks like a nice spot to rest your weary feet on a sidewalk in front of the Sarasota County Health Center, Florida.

“Slowin’ Down to Take a Look” in Winslow , Arizona . Included, of course, is “a girl, my lord, in a flat bed Ford slowin’ down to take a look at me.”

  1. I do not know whether it’s just me or if everybody else experiencing problems with your blog. It seems like some of the text in your posts are running off the screen. Can somebody else please comment and let me know if this is happening to them too? This could be a issue with my browser because I’ve had this happen before.
    Thanks
