Street Artist

Have you seen any of these art projects that are done by street artists? They come in and usually use sidewalk chalk to draw 3D pictures on the street or sidewalk.
They are amazing, and usually cover about 20-30 feet. The pictures below show paintings that cover the length of a street!
These are painted by Edgar Mueller.

This one is called the Great Crevase. Together with five assistants, Mueller painted all day long from sunrise to sunset. It was painted on the East Pier in DunLaoghaire, Ireland.


This one is named Flash Flood. It was done in Saskatchewan, Canada.

I think this is my favorite. It's called Lava Burst and was done in Geldern, Germany. I can't believe the amount of detail in this and the way they parked the cars in just the right spot adds to the illusion. This one is also the longest one, you can see how it goes all the way down the street! Amazing!

I've seen some before, but never these. They are so cool. Can you imagine crossing that last street???? What a weird feeling that would be, altho you wouldn't have the illusion, I guess, when you're right on top of it.

Thanks for sharing!

SO amazing. I've just always found these incredible. I remember in the movie Mary Poppins, the guy drawing on the ground. Truly creative! I can't even imagine being able to do that. I've never seen the pictures of these where it's the whole street. Another art I find fascinating is sand art... where they do whole cities & such in sand! Simply amazing =)

Those are amazing! Someone has such a keen eye for 3-d. That's one thing that I have a tough time with.

Hubby always sends me these pictures when new ones come out. I'm always amazed by them. When they show them from an aerial view and they take up a city block...that's crazy, especially because they lose all their dimension.

That is totally amazing. What a talent.
(puts my stick-figure art to shame!) ;)

Even though I know they are a drawing...I have to keep reminding my self! I can't imagine the talent it must take to complete these!

Betty said...

I think they are amazing too! Would love to see them in real life sometime.

These are very neat looking.

Speaking of art shows, 2nd Ref. in Zeeland has a display going on right now in their church. All dipictions of the Prodigal Son. Open to the public. I enjoyed it on Sunday.

I love these things! I wonder if they are still there, and if my husband could find the one in Germany on his next trip.
