Cheerful Facades – Fun Murals by Patrick Commecy

Patrick Commecy and his team has done a great job of transforming boring building facades into fun and witty works of art. His hyperrealistic style would make anyone take a second look at the buildings. Patrick likes to incorporate local famous people from the town into his work. An example would be his trompe l’oeil mural in the town of Montpellier where he cleverly six influential residents of Montpellier including Antoine Jérôme Balard, the scientist who discovered bromine. One of my favorites is his mural based on Gabriel Chevallier’s popular novel “Clochemerle”. He accurately sketched the novel’s larger-than-life characters doing what they do best – drinking, loving, and living life to its fullest.
