Young Chilean artist Fredo draws absolutely mind-blowing three-dimensional pencil drawings that look like they’re about to jump off the page. Well, actually, he’s already 20 years old at the time of writing this article, but our title is not completely a lie – majority of his works were submitted to Deviant Art back in 2008 or even 2007 when he was 16-17 years old. Some of his 3d drawings took him only 30 minutes to complete, but there were cases when he needed a whole month.
Today, we want to show you another wonderful 3D illusion which is installed in front of the steps of Paris’s city hall. French artist François Abélanet created this incredible 3-dimensional grass globe with the help of about ninety workers and called it ‘Qui croire?’ (‘who to believe?’). When viewed at a certain angle it looks as though it was a large sphere.

Born and raised in New Orleans La, USA, Craig Tracy has always been an artist. A graduate with honors from The Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale, Craig was a professional Freelance Illustrator by the age of twenty.

There are probably three things you cannot avoid in life – death, taxes and seeing another collection of 3D pavement art on the Internet. While Julian Beever’s 3D Pavement Drawings are the most popular, we believe that artists like Kurt Wenner are less known, so we will take a risk and share his works with you.
Argentinian artist Leandro Erlich has constructed a full-size fake swimming pool, complete with all its trappings, including a deck and a ladder. When seen from the deck, the pool appears to be filled with deep, shimmering water. In fact, a layer of water only some 10 centimeters deep is suspended over transparent glass. Below the glass is an empty space with aquamarine walls that viewers can enter.

Meet Eric Grohe, a world famous artist who designs and paints vividly realistic murals and architectural facades, transforming ordinary spaces into panoramic works of beauty, depth and inspiration. You can say it’s the the same old Julian Beever’s 3D Pavement Art, except it’s on the walls this time.
