Imagine walking down the street and suddenly the sidewalk opens in front of you and an imaginary scene appears right in front of you! If you’re lucky, you’ve just stepped into one of Julian Beaver’s works of art!
Julian creates dazzling and humorous 3D illusions on streets and sidewalks. With the sidewalk and the surrounding architecture, it creates distorted optical illusions. Images are drawn with a special distortion to create a three-dimensional impression when viewed from a certain angle.
“Batman and Robin to the rescue.”
“Meet Mr. Frog”
“Wheel of Fortune. This was done in Santiago, Chile for the Telecommunications company 3M as part of their “Ingenuity” campaign. It was the most difficult drawing I have ever attempted.”
“Strangalia. Police arrived in Cabbage Street, Brussels yesterday after reports that an unusually large specimen of Strangalia maculata, the Longhorn Beetle, had been seen scurrying across the road, frightening shoppers. Before apprehension, the insect mysteriously disappeared during a downpour. It has not been seen since. Police have not confirmed or denied the report.”
Gold. Lot’s and lots of gold!
