Amazing 3D Sidewalk Chalk Art 10

Sidewalk Chalk Art,also called 3D graffiti, whether it's in chalk or paint, on walls or the street, represents a new way of combining the mastery of Renaissance art techniques with the gritty, ephemeral qualities of amazing street art. These 3D street artists gives graffiti a whole new meaning one that departs from the conventional interpretation of graffiti as vandalism in the form of images and letters scrawled on public property. Artists like Kurt Wenner, Eduardo Relero and Tracy Lee Stum create street art that is so incredible, it is almost impossible to pass by without being sucked in to the worlds they create on asphalt and concrete surfaces.Photographing the sidewalk chalk art is a tricky business. You have to position the camera to be from the exact position for it to look good like this does. Similar to the other sidwalk chalk drawings, you must understand that for the perspective illusion to work, the drawing in real life is much more stretched out that you would think it is.
