Street artist David Louf—more commonly known as Mr. June—has recently finished a number of urban projects showcasing his 3D-style murals on various pieces of infrastructure and cityscape.

Colossal recently reported that Louf just completed an entire building in Berlin with his signature process: using a laser to sketch the surface’s main lines and then painting abstract overtop.

“I always hope I can create a moment of awareness,” Louf told Colossal. “Awareness of the viewer at that spot at that moment.”

The artist’s website features photos and videos of his work, most recently a design on the roof of a water tank in Greensboro, North Carolina, that he calls “an ode to the beauty of water.”

Louf says he painted the 45-meter-in-diameter water tank roof in 13 days. Check out the video below:

A prime example of how our most mundane building stock can be 'MORE'. Love This!
