Dutch artist Daan Botlek was recently in France where he painted this lovely mural for the Le MUR Mulhouse a couple of weeks ago.
Botlek’s characters are just awesome, often simple and site-specific, with an amazing ability to interact with the surrounding architectural elements and the painted surface in the most unexpected and witty ways creating the illusion of volume and bringing them to life.
Here a few images of the work in progress by French photographer Jean-paul Houille.
