These Murals in Tehran Merge with the Sky

The architecture in the city of Tehran is a mixed bag. One building can have a nice modern facade, while the surrounding buildings are just simple and gray. This discrepancy in building practices led to the government allotting a budget committed to making public art a greater priority. For the past eight years, local Iranian artists have been commissioned to do large murals on the blank buildings to “color” up the city they all love.

The Nostalgic Streets of Sao Paulo

If you find yourself in Sao Paulo, Brazil, make sure to take notice of the stunning 3D perspective murals that fill the city. As you roam the streets you can catch a glimpse of history walking alongside you; murals of people from another time, old cars, and old buildings. These murals display a sense of realism that draw the viewer in to another time and give a sense of nostalgia for a bygone era. The artwork has been inspired by many different Mexican and Brazilian artists, but are painted by only one man.
