Stunning Wall Murals by Eric Grohe
New York born Eric Grohe creates spectacular and vividly realistic wall murals and architectural facades, transforming ordinary spaces into panoramic works of beauty, depth and inspiration. Grohe uses a special German paint called keim mineral paint which can last 130 years. Each mural can take several months with Grohe enjoying every brush stroke. "Every project is a grand adventure, if passion for the work and inspiration are your guides," he said. Some of the murals he has painted reach 3,600ft.
