3D Sidewalk Chalk Art

3D Sidewalk Chalk Art

Julian Beever is an English artist who has been creating 3D chalk drawings on pavements since the mid-1990s. He makes his art using a projection technique called anamorphosis. When viewed from a particular angle, this technique creates the illusion of 3D.

According to the author, the “secret is to set up a camera on a tripod and keep it in one spot and check every mark you make. It’s really just playing with perspective to make it appear different to what it really is.

    I think it would be hard to force myself to walk on them for 2 reasons-

    _ It might mess them up.

    _ I’d be afraid to fall in.

    Where is this guy located? I mean, I would LOVE to take my family there on a vacation just to check it out but have NO IDEA how to find him or his work. Do he put a protective coat on his work so that it lasts or does the weather wash it away??? This man is blessed with such a beautiful talent.
