Eric Grohe hard at work

Meet Eric Grohe, a world famous artist who designs and paints vividly realistic murals and architectural facades, transforming ordinary spaces into panoramic works of beauty, depth and inspiration. You can say it’s the the same old Julian Beever’s 3D Pavement Art, except it’s on the walls this time.

Eric Alan Grohe was born in New York City in 1944. His professional career as a graphic designer and illustrator began in Seattle in 1961. In 1973, he was asked to design graphics for Expo’74 in Spokane, Washington. At this time, he began receiving commissions for his artwork, which have continued to grow in scope and size, leading to today’s large-scale trompe l’oeil murals. Throughout his 43-year career as a professional artist, Grohe has received national recognition for his work, which is now focused on painting figurative and architectural murals for clients throughout the country.

Now let’s take a look at his incredibly realistic murals, and always remember to check twice before driving below a bridge in Seattle!
