3D anamorphic pavement art, invented in the eighties by Master Street Painter Kurt Wenner, is conquering the world as we speak. These illusionary 2-dimensional images, that appear to become 3-dimensional when viewed from a fixed point through a camera lens, represent a new way of combining the mastery of Renaissance art techniques with the ephemeral qualities of street paintings. This book introduces you to the most important 3D
street artists, their work and their views on this young and trendy art form.
See how their creations transform everyday locations into alternative realities and behold the mysterious worlds that lie hidden beneath the surface of the streets.
