John Pugh is an artist with a rare talent for 3D mural paintings, a form of art he refers to as ‘monumental’ – massive, imposing, exceptionally great and of enduring significance. We’ve seen the trending rage of 3D street art over recent times, mostly real life 3D street paintings made on the roads and floors almost swallowing you in the most stunning of artistic ways. John Pugh however, brings forth an entirely fresh and novel trend in 3D mural art instilled in the environment by focusing majorly on walled and upright surfaces.
Have a look at his rightly monumental 3D mural art and be taken by the grandeur of John Pugh’s artistic abilities.
John Pugh’s stunningly refreshing style of work brings with it a world of opportunity in the world of not only visual art, but design and architecture, being a completely and efficiently crafted culmination of space and environment. John Pugh has painted exceptional murals not only for public spaces, but designed effectively for residential spaces, corporate projects and several more ongoing and diverse, new territories. His art is such that gives you a feeling as though it is physically involving you in its grandeur and visual masterpiece. John Pugh’s style of painting is a free way across playing with recreating space in the form of painted illusions that deceive the eyes into believing the mural may actually be a real, designed extension of space in itself. This art of 3D mural painting by John Pugh pleasantly touches on elements of interactive illusions meeting with tradition painting in somewhat 2D sculptural style.
In the words of John Pugh himself,
I have found that the “language” of life-size illusions allow me to communicate with a very large audience. It seems almost universal that people take delight in being visually tricked. Once captivated by the illusion, the viewer is lured to cross an artistic threshold and thus seduced into exploring the concept of the piece. I have also found that by creating architectural illusion that integrates with the existing environment both optically and aesthetically, the art transcends the “separateness” that public art sometimes produces.
