    Not as spectacular as Doel's street art, but a little town not far from Melbourne has their own version of this:

    There is a town somewhere in Europe (Holland, Belgium perhaps) where you will find fantastic paintings on the outside of houses/buildings giving the walls an impression of a village. It's famous but I still can't find it on Google. Can you help?

    I tried, and usually am pretty good. More clues if they come to you...

    This is not the one I had in mind but it's still fascinating

    It's all pretty amazing from my talent and commitment point of view.

    This one was on display in Melbourne's railway terminal (end place of all trains travelling to and from Melbourne, not a suburban one). When they did a makeover of the terminal they moved it to an impossible location above a row of not-busy shopfronts. Typical developer stupidity, the thing used to be a huge drawcard for visiting tourists.

    Very interesting painting - as you say, it should be available at a closer distance to enable you see the fascinating work and the details.

    I saw it in its original position, where you could spend an hour and not find all the details. We used to go just to watch the guy work. Took him about three years.
