The 5 Most Talented 3D Sidewalk Artists

This time we compiled a list of the world’s top 5 most talented 3D sidewalk artists showcasing some of their best works. Those guys are: Edgar Mueller, Julian Beever, Kurt Wenner, Manfred Stader, and Eduardo Rolero.

These talented street artists have crafted an amazing ability to trick the eyes of passersby into seeing 3 dimensional sceneries and objects on a completely flat asphalt. Their works are created using a projection called anamorphosis, and create the illusion of three dimensions when viewed from the correct angle.

Art of this style can be produced by taking a photograph of an object or setting at a sharp angle, then putting a grid over the photo, another, elongated grid on the footpath based on a specific perspective, and reproducing exactly the contents of one into the other, one square at a time.
