3D Sketchbook Artwork

Japanese artist Nagai Hideyuki creates amazing sketchbook drawings that when viewed from the right angle, appear to create a realistic 3D illusion. The 21-year-old uses a technique called “anamorphosis” in which the talented artist is able to create these mind-boggling masterpieces that seem to come to life right out of his sketchbook.

Amazing 3D Street Art

Street painting, also commonly known as “pavement art, chalk art, sidewalk art, is the performance art of rendering artistic designs on pavement such as streets, sidewalks, and town squares with impermanent and semi-permanent materials.”

It began in the United States when an artist named Sidewalk Sam began painting the streets of Boston in 1973. After being influenced by his works, American artist Kurt Wenner traveled to Europe and began painting the streets. In 1984 he was documented by National Geographic in their film Masterpieces In Chalk. That same year he won the title of “Maestro Madonnaro” (“best” or “featured” chalk artist) at the Grazie festival.

Today this work is called 3D Street Painting, 3D Pavement Art, 3D Chalk Art, 3D Sidewalk Art, 3D Illusion, anamorphic or 3D, and it’s brilliance is spreading globally.

Here is a look at some of the most amazing 3D street paintings that we came across:
