The 5 Most Talented 3D Sidewalk Artists

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

These talented street art pioneers have crafted amazing chalk drawing abilities to trick the eyes of passersby into seeing 3-dimensional sceneries and objects on completely flat asphalt. Their works are created using a projection called anamorphosis and create the illusion of 3D art when viewed from the correct angle, taking sidewalk art to another dimension.

3D street art of this style can be produced by taking a photograph of an object or set at a sharp angle, then putting a grid over the photo, another, an 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.

Scroll down to read about these sidewalk chalk art masters below and see their amazing 3D street art in action.

Edgar Mueller

Edgar Müller was born in Mülheim/Ruhr on 10 July 1968 and grew up in the rural city of Straelen on the western edge of Germany. His fascination with painting began in his childhood, with paintings of rural scenes of Straelen. Around the age of 25, Müller decided to devote himself completely to street painting. He traveled all over Europe, making a living with his transitory art.

Kurt Wenner

Kurt Wenner was born in Ann Arbor, Michigan and boasts to be the inventor of three-dimensional pastel drawings. He produced his first commissioned mural at the age of sixteen, and by seventeen was earning his living as a graphic artist. He attended both Rhode Island School of Design and Art Center College of Design. According to his website, 3D Pavement Artists, 3D Sidewalk Artists, and 3D Chalk artists can all trace the roots of their work back to the street art of Rome in 1982, where Kurt Wenner transformed the complex geometry of Classical Italian Architecture into a new form of Popular Art. Whether they are called Street Paintings, Chalk Paintings, Sidewalk Paintings or pavement art, if they have a three-dimensional illusion they can be traced back to Kurt Wenner pastel drawings.

I had to leave this post here as a sign of gratitude since that is one of the least BRIXTON asked of me. From my calculations, I made $25,200 in 1-week trading but unfortunately lost it all after I tried to participate in an airdrop, I became very devastated until I read some wonderful reviews about WIZARD BRIXTON. I feel so much joy right now because BRIXTON did come through for me by getting my money back from those scam artists, my advice is for you to be mindful of the links you click online to avoid losing your money. The experience of losing your money to a scammer is not funny no matter how much. Feel free to ask me more hanswilton3@gmail.com or contact WIZARD BRIXTON via EMAIL : WIZARDBRIXTON(AT) GMAIL (DOT) COM WHATS-APPS : (+1- /807-23 ) 4-0428 .
