Jewels in the city - Amsterdam - Liesbet Bussche - Liesbet Bussche is a street artist who wants to add a bit of class, and proper jewelry accents, to all that ugly junk hanging around the city streets.

The wider side of the Gooderham Building (1892) in Toronto is marked by an artful painting made in the style of trompe l’oeil, meaning ‘to deceive the eye.’ The Flatiron Mural (1998) by Canadian artist Derek Besant, mirrors the building directly across from it. Derek gave the illusion of a fluttering drape and many open windows, only a few of which are actually there.
