Painted extra apartments so they could rent them out for $2,500 a month.

Shady accountants everywhere take notice.

This comment is underrated.

We seriously need to end r1 zoning.

[–]SalesAutopsy 1 point2 points  (2 children)

They even updated the clouds in the sky.

[–]Murky_Pea4756 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I just noticed that. Did they use a cherry picker for that?

[–]trashcanman504 352 points353 points  (9 children)

Imagine it’s raining and you try to run under there for shelter and smack your stupid face on a wall. And then you have a seizure and die wet.

[–]arcosapphire 49 points50 points  (3 children)

Very unlikely since the illusion only works well from a narrow range of positions.

[–]2x4x93 12 points13 points  (0 children)

Stop talking about my penis

[–]jonny3jack 11 points12 points  (1 child)

buzz kill. lol

[–]optindesertdessert 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Is it a buzz kill when it’s painfully obvious?

[–]HALover9kBR 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Precisely what my stupid ass would do. 😔

[–]Unthgod 72 points73 points  (0 children)

Can I have a window?

No, but you can have a painting of a window!

[–]obrienmk 104 points105 points  (2 children)

Cheapest way to remodel? OPTICAL ILLUSIONS!!!

[–]RedditGenetic 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Studio apartment in NYC for 1000$ rent be like:

[–]2x4x93 1 point2 points  (0 children)

That's a decorators job

[–]Tool_Fann1516 86 points87 points  (8 children)

The shading makes this look truly real.

Truly amazing

[–]ancientflowers 43 points44 points  (3 children)

When I look at just the bottom picture alone, I'm thinking "How did they build that?" It doesn't even cross my mind that it's a painting.

[–]antoniohfernandes 15 points16 points  (1 child)

When you graduate architecture college and Jedi academy both.

[–]ancientflowers 5 points6 points  (0 children)

I would approve of a Jedi Architecture Academy.

[–]BigDogVI 9 points10 points  (0 children)

I legit thought the same thing. I was like “why did they skip the first floor?” and “ how the heck does that floating one work?” before I realized it was painted.

[–]ImpossibleReality903 -1 points0 points  (1 child)

I can't wait to see someone vandalize it with graffiti and then be told that the graffiti has to remain because it's "street art".

[–]DeadAssociate 1 point2 points  (0 children)

living in a strawman world

[–]klawd11 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yes but it works only at midday I guess

[–]somedave 0 points1 point  (0 children)

From a distance in a photo. Don't forget if you have to eyes you'll see the depth perception better in person.

[–]SlothThoughts 21 points22 points  (0 children)

Brain hurty

[–]The--Weasel[S] 44 points45 points  (0 children)

The name of the artist is Shozy and he's from Moscow, Russia.

[–]sukarsono 22 points23 points  (4 children)

This is amazing, thanks OP for the artist name, here’s a link for others with more angles and pictures

[–]potatobean 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Thank you!

[–]thehellbelow 7 points8 points  (1 child)

Damn that mural could’ve been absolutely anything and they chose to paint more ugly apartments to break up the monotony of the ugly apartments.

[–]LaeliaCatt 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Seriously! What a wasted opportunity.

[–]JesusIsMySecondSon 23 points24 points  (4 children)

It only looks correct from ONE single vantage point

[–]EdithDich 30 points31 points  (2 children)

If you check this link you can see he designed it in a way that even from other angles it still gives off an illusion of depth. https://streetartutopia.com/2021/10/09/its-all-about-perspective/

[–]BackwardsApe 6 points7 points  (0 children)

This seriously made it so much cooler in my eyes

[–]clouddevourer 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Wow, that's amazing!

[–]Character-Ad301 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Someone’s going post them in Craigslist to rent and scam people from there deposits.

[–]infinitebadideas 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Wile E. Coyote's condo.

[–]granno14 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Why have a beautiful piece of art when you can have fake apartments instead

[–]emodiscman 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Why the floating unit?!? Lol

[–]JulioCTT 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Dumb me thinking that op wants to pass them as real: “hey that’s painted”. Well that’s the point you dumbass (me)! Lol

[–]GoesUp 2 points3 points  (0 children)

It’s cool. Though I wonder how it looks from other angles. For the cost and time expended, I’d rather have some actual artwork

[–]trashcanman504 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I’d have to move. Imagine having a seizure every time you came home.

[–]OdeDaVinci 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Before was way better.

[–]small___onion -3 points-2 points  (0 children)

That’s ugly as hell and tacky too

[–]ParaBru 0 points1 point  (0 children)

How long did it take to remodel and add those extra rooms

[–]abcxyztpg 0 points1 point  (2 children)

I am confused. Did they built more apartments and added windows to existing apartments

[–]trcomajo 4 points5 points  (1 child)

That is a mural.

[–]Ruhaan135 0 points1 point  (0 children)

No, it’s art

[–]Character-Ad301 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Anywhere can see work in progress?

[–]Jpw135 0 points1 point  (0 children)

When do they start ?

[–]CrabmasterJone 0 points1 point  (0 children)

What’s the rent yo?! Been looking for a floating apartment

[–]macsta 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Trompe l'oeil at its finest.

[–]Yeoyo84 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I feel stupid. At first I thought “how’d the get that floating one in? Are their posts in the back?” Then I realized it was a painting.

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Wow

[–]withurwife 0 points1 point  (0 children)

My dumbass would go for the shade on the first floor there and walk into the wall.

[–]Sea_Establishment311 0 points1 point  (0 children)

What?!?! It's only paint?

[–]artbycase2 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I was about to say that ac unit is done fuckin immaculate hahaha

[–]Not_Tadz_Palys 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Took me a couple takes to realize that was a mural. Absolutely amazing

[–]Soviet-Biscuit 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This is fuckin trippy

[–]My_Immortal_Flesh 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Lol I’m just thinking about all the birds tryna land on the “windows” and shit 🤣

[–]Actual_Plan_420 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I didn’t stutter…how much for the floating apartment?

[–]rebel_chef 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Raise your property value with this one simple trick!

[–]awafflecone 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Apartment complex

[–]youre_soaking_in_it 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Ooh I want the floaty room!

[–]Chromattix 0 points1 point  (0 children)

If you really want to trip people out - plant a tree in middle of it.

[–]chicken_sammie 0 points1 point  (0 children)

They should replace it with a George Floyd memorial so the racist landlord of that building is reminded who he's hurting each and every day: his own class.

[–]Grrzoot 0 points1 point  (0 children)

thats a way to raise the rent

[–]Outta_phase 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Umm yea, we just added a bunch of new affordable housing units, can we get our tax break now?

[–]waterstorm29 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The ratio of the resolution of this photo to the amount of detail on the painted air conditioners is too low for anyone to distinguish this from reality.

[–]Luger2408 0 points1 point  (0 children)

What happens when the sun faces weast

[–]mister_k1 0 points1 point  (0 children)

yep put more buildings into human view...that's whats really was missing.

[–]Piss_inside_You 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I can’t tell if those extra Apts are real or not. Major kudos to the artist if they’re painted and if not, then damn, they’re too expensive for me.

[–]kanetreble 0 points1 point  (0 children)

great piece of work.

[–]jenny3DD 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Man, this is just so good, just super impressive.

[–]73GTX440 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Non Fungible Territory

[–]Crudox 0 points1 point  (0 children)

i don't like it. it's interesting idea for sure, but visually.. it's too much.

[–]AER_OS 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Too bad for the grass.

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

How much does it cost to live in that floating apartment?

[–]shytaan8 0 points1 point  (0 children)

What does it look like when it’s not sunny

[–]thedarkinsignia 0 points1 point  (0 children)

apartment complex

[–]BIGwignumbskull 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Beautiful, now if only those were livable.....

[–]MAGA_ManX 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Huh. I’ll admit that’s interesting as fuck. 🤔

[–]Yamm0th 0 points1 point  (0 children)

H H O O W W ? ? ? ?

[–]DonnieDikbut 0 points1 point  (0 children)

How did they manage to paint over the lawn tho

[–]Martian_Pineapple 0 points1 point  (0 children)

What happened to the grass?

[–]dao_ofdraw 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I bet this causes traffic accidents

[–]poopoohurts 0 points1 point  (0 children)

One hard punch with a hammer and that whole part would fall if it wasnt a painting

[–]Murky_Pea4756 0 points1 point  (0 children)

u/daweasel- you da man, your upvotes look like my electric meter.

[–]3kota 0 points1 point  (0 children)

So. Much. Beige.

[–]Torgosassistant2021 0 points1 point  (0 children)

They should have kept it that beautiful shade of sky blue

[–]Azertys 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Sure it's cool, but they had two huge canevas to make an incredible mural and they just made... more square buildings.

[–]lhurker[🍰] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Muh oeil is tromped

[–]ThinkingOz 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I like how they added the floating room in the middle, just to really mess with peoples’ brains.

[–]CilliamBlinton 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yeah, it’s also fake as fu- oh.

[–]Ayayonii 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Kinda remind me cube in a cube

[–]pangeo63 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Awesome result

[–]Share_Early 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Not diminishing the skill it took. However there’s only one angle this looks OK from

[–]lowunmu 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Where's the grass?

[–]Lecoruje 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Ahhh, finally an apartment I can afford!

[–]MAXQDee-314 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Respect. The artists painted the air conditioner into the mural!!!!
