Every now and then we post amazing set of 3D sidewalk paintings done usually by chalk artist Julian Beever. These things never get old, and always manage to fascinate. I collected dozen of photos never before seen on this site, and integrated them in this article. All look amazing to me, but I liked the “World” one the best. Is it your favorite too? If I missed any of his creations, be sure to notify me, but before you do this, check if I already posted them to the “3D Sidewalk Art” category. Another thing I noticed, is that this particular artist always poses next to his creations (when finished) in a very original way! Stay fresh my friends, and if you liked this article please share it on the net!

    my fave was the fifth… it really looks like the girl is in mid-air. its amazing how you have to draw them really streched out and take the piicture at a certain angle.

    YAY FIRST!!!

    I’ve seen sidewalk paintings in Bellingham and Port Townsend, these however, take the cake. I love illusions of space–crawling out of a hole for instance. As an artist myself, I wonder how it is to spend so much time and then have the elements take it away. Perhaps it’s like the monks making those intricate sand–or is is colored rice–paintings. Bravo!

    these were painted by chalks? so after rain all will be gone? Is it that’s why many can’t locate the painting ??

    These chalk drawings are very nice, but they only last as long as weather and pedestrian permit. and he creates these illusions by looking through the scope of his camera after every line he makes to create the optical illusion.

  63. Unknow says:

    Man! I don’t know how you can do the works you do, but I find them amazing. The depth you put into each one, it looks like you could just step off into picture. Cool

  70. Cathy Bolin says:

    I would pay for a huge sinkhole to be painted in the middle of my asphalt driveway. BUT, in real paint that would be permanent. The number of vehicles that use it for turnarounds are ruining it early, and I can’t afford replacement.

  85. Mike McGowan says:

    These are truly amazing! I have never seen anything like them- and I am only looking at pictures. I would love the opportunity to see them in person. He should do them across the country/ world in a cordoned off area and charge people to see them. I sure would pay if I could find them!!

  86. bigdog says:

    I never thought this was possible, I mean I’ve seen it on paper and i’m like i’ll be able to do that if i practice but when I’ve seen Julian’s drawings i said to myself whoa is he the best drawer in the world or the best anamorphic.
