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.

Creativity and imagination for a unsightly wall...
