Sidewalk Art (Pavement Drawings) by Julian Beever
I recently received an email showing off Julian Beever’s pavement drawings. I found it fascinating. He creates drawings on sidewalks in chalk, which look amazingly realistic in 3D when viewed from the proper angle.
They garner many strange looks from passersby since the perspective from most angles is off putting. But if you hit it just right, the reward is perceived.
Below is one of my favorites, Meeting Mr. Frog, with a little live human interaction. Hard to believe that someone would put this much time and effort into a work that will be washed away with the first good rain that comes along.
