This mural was painted in 1980 by Derek Besant.
Its actual title is “Trompe l’Oeil.”
It is on the back of Toronto’s famous Flatiron building, which faces Berczy Park.
Next post I’ll cover the sidewalk art leading up to it.

It is, as you say, à couper le souffle. There is no need to explain why we need some beauty especially this week.
I was thrilled to find this work of art has its title in the French language. Take care!

I am very attracted to this type of work, achieve fool the eye is very complicated…, in my language is called “trampantojo” (trap for the eye) 🙂

I’m so glad you love my blog because it means you love street art. 🙂 Of course, it’s all part of street style, as you are! XOXO ❤
I love the way the top corners & middle edges of the illusion are tacked to the brick wall. Very clever. xox ❤
Very clever … love the corners, so a big thumbs up!

One word: Outstanding!
That is most excellent!
Excellent post. You also remind me that you always try to identify the artist. (Which I don’t shame on me) You must now be a world-wide expert on street art
And thanks for he.ping me out on this one. Merci beaucoup. Cheers.
