Berlin artist James Bullough fuses photorealism, abstract art and graffiti into massive murals depicting people and animals with a strongly fragmented yet cohesive aesthetic. The Washington DC native draws from his rich history growing up in one of the nations most thriving cities for street artists. His intense study of the Old Masters also ensured that his painting chops were impeccable enough to pull off these convincing illusions.
Background imagery is minimal, either solid color or simple shapes to instantly pull the eye towards the protagonist of the piece. The images themselves appear in segments, as if looking through a broken mirror which reveals multiple planes and angles of the subject. On its own the visual effect is fascinating, but combining the concept with such classical execution is what really takes these pieces to another level.All images courtesy of James Bullough
