Julian Beever

Some have dubbed him "the Pavement Picasso" but he says that although this is flattering, his work has little in common with the Spanish Master except perhaps in the fact that Picasso too was interested in 3 dimensionality in his Cubist period.

He credits the internet for bringing his work to the attention of the world.

Kurt Wenner

The last of the 5 featured artists, Kurt Wenner is the man who invented this art form, therefore I saved his work for last.

In 1984, Wenner invented an art form all his own that has come to be known as anamorphic or 3D pavement art. A form of perspective, known as anamorphism was used by the great European Masters to give the illusion of soaring architecture and floating figures in ceiling frescoes.

Inspired by this use of perspective, Wenner invented a new geometry to create compositions that appear to rise from, or fall into the ground. This type of geometry has come to be known as Wenner’s hyperbolic perspective.

In 1985 his work was the subject of National Geographic’s award-winning documentary Masterpieces in Chalk.
