Fabulous Paintings By The Creative Street Painter Kurt Wenner

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

Kurt Wenner began street painting tinRome in 1982, and by 1984 was one of a few recognized Master Street Painters. Inspired by anamorphism, a technique used in fresco-ed ceilings to create the illusion of height, he devised a unique geometry that enabled him to bring his illusion to the horizontal surface of the street.

His new art form, known as anamorphic, illusionistic, or simply  3d street painting has become a worldwide phemomenon. via Kurt Wenner official site.
