ERIC GROHE – 3D MURAL PAINTER – When I was a boy I would watch in awe of my father drawing the most incredible cartoons. As I grew up I would continue to be fascinated with what he could produce from his imagination and artistic flare. Did I ever inherit his artist genes? Nope, absolutely nothing, in fact the best I can muster up is a matchstick man and to be perfectly honest even these are exceeded by the artistic talents of any 3 year old.
While I do not have an ounce of artistic flare or talent I certainly can appreciate the sheer brilliance of someone like Eric and here’s just a few of his remarkable murals that transform walls and buildings from the bland and uninteresting to colorful and incredible scenes.
When I first came across Eric’s Mural Paintings I was truly amazed and for two good reasons. Firstly, not only does Eric take a bland and uninteresting building and turn it into a work of art but his work is shared and enjoyed by the millions of people who pass by his work on a daily basis which enhances their lives.
Seriously would you have ever imagined a boring basement corridor could be transformed into an interesting place to walk through? This surely must give the employees an immense amount of joy as the corridor is transformed from a depressing area into a colorful and interesting work of art.
When it comes to art there is a multitude of of forms, from sculptures to paintings and it never ceases to amaze me of the raw talent that is out there. What I particularly like about Eric’s work is the fact that he shares in such a unique way by taking what is a very dull looking space, which has little or no appeal, and transforms it into something for everyone to enjoy.
