Attack Of The Ginormous Snail. Poor Woman Never Stood A Chance.

Rate this post


Well not exactly you will see. If you would be so kind as to scroll down  just a bit you will see.

This photo was taken somewhere in Europe, and I can’t believe I never saw it before – specially since the author behind it is one and only #Julian Beever, master of 3D pavement art. What you see below is a street and a plain stone bench occupied by an ordinary citizen and one unordinary creature. Both pavement and bench are partially covered by a chalk drawing. The drawing disappears in places, and at one point seems to bump into a metal pole. What I find so interesting about this anamorphic painting is it’s seamless transition between flat pavement surface and a bench. But I guess this all makes sense when you see it from another angle. Both photos are included!

  3. I have seen many of these and I think these artists are incredible! Remember the one of the bathroom, where it looked like you were standing on an open floor looking down from a skyscraper? Taht oen was scary.

    • lindarm, I do remember that one. Wow what a good memory you have. I can’t find it in my files. Might be stuck on an older laptop. I’ll search for them..
      PS I found a site today and I may make this a regular feature.

  4. Just wow!
    That takes talent far beyond anything I can even begin to comprehend much less reproduce.

  5. ive got to do an assessment (project) on this and need lots of help.
    style- realistic
    technique- chalk pastels and paramorphism
    What effect is created by using his style and technique?
    Explain what the art work is about? (using specific examples from the artwork to back it up.)
    what do u think of the artwork? dislike it of like it and why?
    do u appreciate the technical aspect of it? why?
    is the image worth seeing? and why?
    please help!!!!!!

  6. caitlin, I just posted it because I thought it was cool. I really don’t know much about art. Here is the web site it came from. There are many sections to this site. This section will be “Chalk Drawings” Scroll down a bit and you will find the snail. I believe they give a little info about the pieces.
    Hope this helps, Steve
