Street artist paints illusion of Sphynx cat on old gas tank

A very impressive work of art. For me there are two things that make it work so well. Firstly the artist, Tom Bragado Blanco from Marseille, France, paints the landscape behind the gas tank onto the gas tank as well as the Sphynx cat. This makes the gas tank disappear and it looks like the cat is in the landscape. Secondly this guy is a fantastic draftsman. Super skills on display.
