They are amazing because they 1) look real 2) are completely flat but look 3 Dimensional 3) drawn only with chalk.
The author of these great drawing is a super creative person also known as Pavement Picasso whose name is Julian Beever.
Not to reinvent the wheel I will cite Wikipedia: “Julian Beever is an English chalk artist who has been creating trompe-l’œil chalk drawings on pavement surfaces since the mid-1990s. His works are created using a projection called anamorphosis, and create the illusion of three dimensions when viewed from the correct angle.
Beever works as a freelance performance artist and creates murals for companies.” Keep in mind that every sidewalk drawing is entirely flat!
Phew, that was an easy introduction! Enjoy the pictures, my friends.
This drawing was drawn in Paris and used in Gallery HD television series “Concrete Canvas” (Episode 8).
It was drawn near The Bank of England and was commissioned by Channel 4’s Midnight Special for the night of the 1997 General Election.
This guy is incredible! (and must be rich too, since he found gold beneath the pavement).
The series were used by White’s Electronics of Inverness in Treasure Hunting magazine.
