  • The Pompeian architectural style, or "hallucinationism," as it is called, dominated the 1st century BC, and refers to painting where walls were decorated with architectural features and trompe-l’oeil (trick of the eye) compositions. This technique consists of marking elements to pass them off as three-dimensional realities—columns, for example, dividing wall space into zones—and was a method widely used by the Romans before being passed down to Byzantine frescoes. Since this stripe functions as an architectural element in the existing architecture, placing Trompe-l'oeil on the wall gives the space a completely different perspective. This column is inspired by the frescoes of St. Andrew church, in Patras, Greece.
