About the mural
Acrylic on M.D.O. Board 13ft. X 20ft.
The creation Art Imitating Life Imitating Art Imitating Life at the Cafe Trompe L’oeil (now Cafe Espresso) in San Jose involved painstaking research and preparation, including a coinciding trip to Paris, France. Here the use and integration of pre-existing surrounding material was taken to a new level. Every subject and artwork realized in this virtual extension of the restaurant are an original creation in their own right. Carefully crafted to more than just resemble the finest art of France’s past, its scholarly devotion to authenticity is an homage.
