Mantra is a talented France-based street art professional who‘s been turning boring walls of residential and commercial buildings into giant pieces of 3D art. By painting hyperrealistic 3D paintings of beautiful butterflies on various facades, Mantra has been creating eye-tricking artworks of huge specimen boxes containing collections of colorful butterflies. The amount of details in these wall murals and all those long shadows that create an illusion of a glass surface just make this unique art even more convincing.

Although the artist currently lives in Metz, his murals can be spotted not only in France. They‘ve already appeared in Austrian and Spanish cities; also there are some examples of these mind-bending illusions in the capital of Colombia, Bogota. If you want to know where they‘re going to “fly” next, make sure to keep an eye on Mantra‘s Instagram.
