At the Station

Where reality and make-belief meet ...

Mural Art in Vancouver - here a real trompe l'oeil that fools the eye into believing the scene is real .... the backs of a row of low shops on Grandview Highway - incorporating an old railline.

I want to thank you all for showing so much interest in Vancouvers wall art - I really appreciate all your great comments !!!!

    Impressive visual game****. Very attractive and beautiful series,dear Adele**.Thank you very much for sharing it ¡

    That's incredible, the artist really knows what they are doing and I suspect they spent a lot of time looking at the site from different angles to get the perspective right and when that is spot on as it is here, the picture works like an optical illusion and draws alot of interest. Keep them coming Adele!

    Looks sooo real!! I had to look at it a while before realising that the arched train platform is painted too. I'n still not sure :-))

    A very clever piece of artwork, with the bike being a real bonus.
    best wishes from Lawson.

    Sehr interessant, da kann man sich lange damit beschäftigen. Ich finde auch den englischen Ausdruck "to fool the eye" bezeichnender als jeden deutschen.
    Tolle Arbeit!

    Un'idea geniale!
    Sembra di stare realmente alla stazione.
    Ottimo lavoro, sia il tuo che quello eseguito dagli artisti che hanno disegnato questo magnifico murales.
    Ciao Iole

    Hier ist die Eisenbahnromantik grau und die Realität ist farbig, das passt gut zu diesem Bild bei dem vertraute Sehgewohnheiten schon ziemlich auf die Probe gestellt werden!
    Liebe Grüße, Ernst

    I can hardly believe it.
    Good one!

    Do not cry. The old pioneer spirit is not gone, only the New erist not immediately apparent.
    Kind regards

    Ciao, Emilio

    Here one has to look as closely to recognize reality and illusion. It is very well designed
    But the foreground is however sad reality.
