Magnificant Mural Mosaics (5 Total)

What's completely amazing about these murals is that it unites hundreds of artists together to create one unified masterpiece. Started in 2004 by Lewis Lavoie, Phil Alain and Paul Lavoie, mural mosaics are assembled after taking a single painting from an individual and placing it in sequence. (The painters have to is adhere to some color and shape guidelines.) I love the collaborative nature of these paintings. Viewed as a standalone piece, each piece of art can be appreciated. But a surprise awaits when you step back and see the collective masterpiece.
