Incredible 3D Sidewalk Art…

with 5 comments


Working primarily with chalk, Julian Beever produces some of the most incredible artwork we’ve come across in a while. Using a technique known as anamorphosis, Mr. Beever’s sidewalk art, when viewed from the proper perspective, appears to have depth: holes appear in sidewalks, bottles protrude out from the street and waterfalls seem to descend down through the sidewalk surface.

What makes Mr. Beever’s sidewalk art so fascinating is that they are all, in fact, flat, two dimensional drawings. If viewed from other than the intended viewing angle, the drawings don’t make much sense (see the reverse angle of the lady in the small pool and note how her leg stretches all the way down the street).

It’s hard to wrap one’s mind around Mr. Beever’s work when first seen, and it’s even harder to put into words, so without further ado, here’s a sampling of Julian Beever’s work…

Remember, this is actually a FLAT image...

It’s a Jungle Out There…It’s a Jungle Out There
1 to 10, with 10 being best, what do you think of this photo art?

Other than adding the lettering, the editing (desaturating everything but the kite) was done inside the camera, a Sony  DSC-H7 with 8.1 MP and a 15X optical zoom. The shot was taken on a cold winter’s day at English Bay in the West End of Vancouver, Canada. Original resolution: 3264 X 2448; ISO speed: 100; exposure time: 1/400th sec.; focal length: 13.7 mm.
