Beauty where you least expect it

Dutch street artist Jan Is De Man was asked by residents of an apartment building in Rtrecht, Netherlands, to bring something positive to their neighborhood. At first he thought of a smiley -- a very big smiley, but it said that project "felt too simple."

After studying his "canvas" he came up with the idea for a l'oeil mural, a artistic visual illusion. "I studied the shape of the house and its location, and the idea of painting a huge bookcase hit me," he said. He painted books that are favorites of the building's residents. He says, "I like to see smiles on people's faces at this idea."
