Street Art in 3D
A few days ago I wrote a piece for the letter P about the use of perspective in art. You can read that here if you’d like, and I struggled with wrapping my head around the concept of vanishing points, angles, etc.
Now there are the examples below and I don’t even now where to begin with explaining how this works. From what I’ve gathered the street art below uses anamorphic projection that, when views from a distinct area, a 2d plain look 3d.
Honestly, that’s the best I can do, but these examples will speak for themselves.
But these examples I’m posting below are mind blowing and absolutely amazing. If you want to see more street art like this, click on the photos and you’ll go to the artist’s website where you can view their extensive portfolios.
Enjoy! And remember–these are drawings, not sculptures, drawn on flat streets!
