Who said 3D Chalk Drawings need to be drawn on pavement!? They can work just the same if you position them vertically. One such fine example is Manfred Stader’s latest work in Trehaus, Germany. It was done for a real estate company celebrating its 25th anniversary. Manfred drew the 3d construction worker, working on a concrete elevator in center of the atrium. BTW, just realized something… is the sole difference between Murals and 3D Chalk Drawings whether they’re vertical or horizontal? Are the murals (trompe l’oeils) more acknowledged as art? What do know about them?

    “is the sole difference between Murals and 3D Chalk Drawings whether they’re vertical or horizontal?”

    Well, no. For one thing, the chalk drawings are temporary and done with chalk and murals are permanent and done with paint :)

    Also, the ones on the ground seem to not work if you view them from other angles, you have to stand in just the right place to get the effect. Murals are done with normal perspective and can be viewed from any angle.

      To Ali: You are correct about the “permanence factor” of murals as opposed to sidewalk art. However, depending on how they’re drawn, the perspective and angle of viewing can be just as important on a mural as with sidewalk art, even with the piece shown here. If you are off to the left, the “broken wall” interior doesn’t quite work. In fact it only works if you are somewhat to the right of center.

      One more think the difference between mural and pavement is that with pavement it can only be seen through a lens such as a camera other than Murals that no camera is needed

    In 1998, I remember driving down Sunset and seeing a building with a painting that looked like the inside was firebombed. It had a huge hole in it. It looked hollow. I almost hit a car looking at it. I couldn’t tell if it real or not. Until I got closer and could see that the sky in the painting was bluer than the real sky.
