One of the most impressive artists that I've come across lately goes by the name of Marchal Mithouard aka Shaka.

Marchal Mithouard is a talented French artist who does incredible three-dimensional paintings that really pop-out -- and I mean that literally. Mithouard draws influences from a variety of artistic styles such as painting, sculptures, serigraph, photography and tattooing. This versatility has led him to create awe-inspiring pieces that are vibrant, colorful and original. To take three-dimensional murals to the next step, the artist attaches objects to the painting to further the illusion that the subjects are coming to life from the canvas. A lot of the works appear to have themes of revolt and rebellion which makes the style all the more powerful.

Currently, Mithouard's works are on display at Galeries 208 in Paris.
