The Murals of John Pugh: Beyond Trompe L'Oeil, by Kevin Bruce
John Pugh has created more than 200 murals and is considered to be the leading proponent, authority, and practitioner of ‘Narrative Illusionism’’, a term coined to describe his particular mural style.
This full-colour collection showcases Pugh's most famous pieces, discusses how he revitalized the trompe l'oeil ("trick of the eye") genre into a vital mode of artistic expression, and illuminates the artist's creative process from sketch to finished mural.
Includes more than 40 full-colour photos of the murals depicting architectural, natural, and pictorial settings.
John Pugh's murals appear in more than 30 cities throughout the country, including San Francisco, Miami, Honolulu, and Anchorage. Pugh's work has been featured in publications worldwide, including Time magazine, the Los Angeles Times, the New York Times, and the San Francisco Examiner.
