Mural at Saint Roch Square, Montpellier
With so many cafes and terraces in the neighborhood, the mural artfully copies everyday life near Saint Roch Church. The optical illusion of the mural makes it appear three dimensional. This mural was created by Agnes and Olivier Costa. Their team, Mad'Art Concept, used a 300-square-meter wall with only one window to break up the blank space as their canvas.
Along with the cafe and the reflection of the church, the Costas referenced the history of Montpellier by including the shells of Saint-Jacques de Compostelle, an image of a dog with bread in its mouth and a medicine jar.
