Urban Art - Murals and an illusion art

This week, I will showcase a series of murals. Murals are actually wall paintings. Hence implying, the oldest mural that survived on Earth are those cave paintings 34,000 years old. The oldest Mural in Singapore is the Changi Murals. While I was attending the Changi Village Literacy Trail, I thought we would be visiting the Changi Chapel and Museum to see the replica. But unfortunately, we did not. We ran out of time.

Illusion Art

Has these street art given you some inspiration to paint (on a piece of paper)?

PS: Graffiti is considered a vandalism act if it is done without permission.
