15 Awesome 3D Street Arts

Updated on October 2, 2012

3D street art has become quite popular nowadays, particular when it is used as a form of advertising by certain famous brands in the world. 3D street art is able to create a 3D effect when viewed from a certain distance away and people will most probably think that the art is part of the building or street that it was done. This kind of art is exceptional difficult to create and there are only a few of people who have mastered it perfectly. Some of them include Julian Beever, Edgar Muller and the team of artists at Street Advertising Services which is based in the UK.

3D street art is created by painting an object close to the lens compact and squashed, while far away objects are painted stretched out way. In such a way, the effect tricks our brains and creates a mind blowing illusion of 3D depth. Doing this on a piece of paper it easy but when you do it on the street, that's a lot more harder than you can imagine.

Below are a list of 15 amazing 3D street arts that created by those awesome 3D artists.
