Amazing 3D Sidewalk Art!
These incredible pictures are actually chalk paintings done by the renowned artist Julian Beever. Julian Beever is an English artist who's famous for his art on the sidewalks of England, France, Germany, USA, Australia and Belgium. Julian is able to create these amazing illusions through a process called Anamorphism. When standing at a particular point in space, the viewer will see the image in "3D". Standing at any other point, however, the same image appears to be two dimensional. This use of artistic "anamorphic perspective" can create an eye popping illusion!
Remember, that guy's foot is real, and not part of the painting!
An incredible illusion on the streets of London, England.
The same painting, from a different angle.
Another masterpiece of street art to astonish onlookers! It's a real shame these works of art are done with chalk, and not permanent.
