I have become completely fascinated in these 3-dimensional pieces of art drawn on sidewalks, walkways, or any large area of pavement. It is nearly impossible to see them as two-dimensional drawings – unless you can view them from another angle. 3D chalk art is created using a projection technique called anamorphosis. When viewed from a particular angle, this technique creates the illusion of 3D – in a most effective way. When viewed from the wrong angle, it looks like crap. I think this is a pretty amazing art form created with only a packet of chalk. From the imagination comes some wonderful things.
These floor 3D chalk art scenes completely fascinate me! They are so realistic, especially the look of depth.
