3D Street Art: Anamorphic Street Paintings
Birgit Krols

Banksy’s ubiquitous influence means anyone who’s anyone is now a devotee of urban art. But today it’s no longer sufficient to spray-paint a stencil onto a bus shelter – these days it’s 3D anamorphic pavement art, invented in the ’80s by Kurt Wenner, that’s dominating the street-art agenda. These two-dimensional images are painted using complicated perspective techniques, so they appear in three dimensions when viewed from a specific spot. This book introduces some of the globe’s top 3D street artists and is filled with examples of their work: a fascinating look at the way modern art is making its mark on the world’s streets.
