Street art
THE FACILITY / KENSINGTON 20 - 29 FEBRUARY 2020


The event takes place in a building that was a warehouse for wool: Younghusband Woolstore, well known to Melbournians, place of concerts and events located four kilometers northwest of CBD, the City of Melbourne (Central Business District).
A large dark room called The Tallows, black walls and floor with industrial bay window. This is where I paint.

Bédarieux

Architectural illusion

Dominique Antony has made a spectacular mural painting representing local alleys and houses of the town of Bedarieux in the South of France. The colors are the same on the houses of the town. The  underground river  surging in this painting is typical of others in towns of the region. The perspective is carefully calculated to make the architecture look convincing and has produced an architectural trompe-l’oeil. Everything here is painted: the tiles, the shutters and windows, the alley, stairs, stone work the heron and the river.

Before there was a concrete blanck  wall
On completion the painted wall is a trompe-l'oeil of the local architecture harmonises with other buildings in the center of Bédarieux, a town in southern France

Enghien-les-Bains

Architectural trompe-l'oeil

Dominique Antony was commissioned to paint a mural on this wall in Enghein-Les-Bains near Paris by the City Council in 2018. Dominique previously had painted 3 murals in the town .The council received extremely positive feedback from the inhabitants and  commissioned this 4th mural from Dominique.
Dominique’s work blends in with the 19th century architecture of the town. In this example you see an interpretation of an existing home in the area on a background of bricks which is the continuity of the actual building it is painted on. It continues the front facade. This is called a Trompe l’oeil.



BEFORE
The ugly grey ciment wall before being painted.
An architectural continuity and blending in with the surroundings and style was required.
Enghein-les-Bains near Paris.
Creativity and imagination for a unsightly wall...
AFTER
Here is the end result where everything is painted, the bricks, the stone work, the plants...
This is a two dimentional wall and an architectural trompe-l'oeil
