Fiona Tang and her Animal Murals are Real “Beasts”

Vancouver-based artist Fiona Tang and her large-scale murals are some real “beasts” when it comes to making these animals literally jump off the wall. 

With a use of a technique called trompe l’oeil, which uses the shadows, dark tones, and perspective, and begins to turn the 2-D drawing into something that looks 3-Dimensional. A largely apparent tool used in the mural community, this obviously isn’t something simple, but an interesting technique to practice with… And by the way, I had no idea what trompe l’oeil was until I looked it up. It’s amazing what you can learn when you want to learn it…

Recently graduated from an Art and Design Institute, you can see more of her work on Facebook.
