At first glance, it looks as if some natural disaster has shaken away the walls of these buildings to reveal architecture hidden for thousands of years. And at second and third glance, it looks like that too. The same as the following two pictures:

Greek tragedy: But the Doric-style columns apparently exposed in this university hall are nothing but paint

But these spectacular images are not the unexpected result of an earthquake, they are 3D Murals Painting made by John Pugh.

Pugh is a master of architectural trompe l’oeil. By fully integrating his art into the architecture, the viewer is perplexed as to where reality begins. Once captivated, the viewer enters into another dimension of time and place.

I list some of his masterpiece below and if you want to see more, click here to visit his website. Just to remind you, everything below is made on a 2D surface.
