French Artist Creates Mind Blowing Trompe-L’oeil Illusions

Patrick Commecy, a talented street artist from France, makes these mind-bending hyper-realistic wall paintings. The before and after photos show the big difference these murals create. It is true that sometimes walls of a building can look really dull and boring, but Patrick has some mad skills to transform them into something amazing and beautiful.

Fittie, Aberdeen
Footdee or Fittie as it is known locally was once a separate village before being absorbed by its big neighbour Aberdeen.

This picturesque area to the south of Aberdeen beach and close to the harbour consists of a few streets formed around squares.

The origins of the name Footdee or Fittie are disputed; some say it takes its name from its position at the foot of the River Dee while other maintain it comes from St Fortin, a saint apparently connected with the local church. Whatever, it was once a poor working class area built at the beginning of the 19th century to house fishermen and their families but has become gentrified somewhat more prosperous and cute and a magnet for artists.

In its prime Fittie once used to boast lots of pubs and it was said that the folk o’ Fittie were not the soberest.

Designed as a planned village Fittie’s houses once looked very similar – 28 single storey and thatched buildings built around its North and South squares with uniform doors and windows. Houses were of granite or harled over granite base with slate roofs, sash and case windows. Middle Row and Pilot’s Square were later additions. Aberdeen’s illustrious architect John Smith was the man behind the design. Later in the 19th century, some homeowners added storeys to provide more accommodation to house their families. A feature of Fittie is its outhouses or tarry sheds mostly highly decorated nowadays. Some of them look like little houses in their own right. Possibly roomy sheds were needed because the houses were so small storage would have been a problem.

Had a good sleep, I asked for a quiet room, so had a view of the internal courtyard, but it was very quiet. Breakfast was good and the staff helpful and friendly.
