Eric Grohe Murals. From kinda cheesy to monumental, and with the ubiquitous floating Jesus and teary-eyed Liberty. Whatever the subject, his work is technically exceptional.

They're not particularly my style but they're pretty impressive nontheless, considering the size.

These are really good, and even better in person -- I recall seeing one or two of this artist's creations in Ohio.

Richard Haas was doing a similar style of murals 20 years ago.

Homage to Chicago School
"On the four sides of a 1929 apartment hotel converted into a 1981 apartment building, urban muralist Richard Haas executed a trompe l’oeil, his Homage to the Chicago School (1980). The 16–story artwork is primarily a visual paean to Louis Sullivan; it includes an illustration of the architect’s terracotta–ornamented window from the Merchants National Bank in Grinnell, Iowa, rising above the famous Golden Entrance to his 1893 World’s Columbian Exposition Transportation Building. Between these two facades, Haas added a playful "reflection" of the Chicago Board of Trade Building (1930), two miles south." From here.

Also a mural in Cincinnati.

No that's coincedental actually, don't read MoFi. Found it searching for images of Jesus.
