From Vandals to Artists: Time Rouses More Appreciation for Graffiti

A few minutes before sunrise on Monday, a train left the subway yard in Corona, Queens, where most cars on the No. 7 line spend the night in slumber.

This one appeared to have rolled out of the distant past.

From top to bottom, inside and out, seats, windows and walls, the train was encased in layers of vinyl advertising sheets. What once had been standard-issue subway cars now had been transformed to look like the interior of a diner.

“It is the first ever total train takeover in M.T.A. history,” said Carina Sayles, a spokeswoman for the company that bought the ads.

Good try, but not quite.

Amazing 3D street murals by John Pugh

If you encounter one of these amazing 3d murals by John Pugh painted on the side of a building, you might feel like you're peering into a tear in the space-time continuum. Don't worry, they're just incredible works of art, no need to call The Doctor.

Pugh describes his work as "monumental mural art", and he masterfully utilizes the trompe l'oiel technique to give the illusion of depth in works which are epic both in scale and lifelike detail.

 If a roadrunner ever seems to run straight into one of these murals, don't race after him or you might end up as flat as a pancake!
