The Italian street artist known as 'Eron' designed a beautiful urban mural that depicts a series of flying seagulls and herons. Unlike traditional street art, Eron's artwork boasts a three-dimensional quality that makes it appear as though the birds are actually in mid-flight. The optical illusion is both startling and intriguing.

The mural itself is titled 'Concrete vs. Concrete' and it is located under a bridge in Riccione, Italy. The murals are done with spray paint, yet they look three-dimensional when viewed from a distance. The visual effect mimics the image of birds in various stages of flight. The flying seagulls and herons thus take on a life-life quality that makes the concrete background look like a realistic scene from nature.
