Chalk street art

This is a 3D street painting of a LEGO Terracotta Army for the Sarasota Chalk Festival in Florida. According to Leon Keer of Planet Streetpainting, the art is “inspired by the Terracotta Army of Qin Shi Huang, the first emperor of China”.

This artwork was created by Planet Streetpainting, a Dutch chalk art collective made up of street artists. I love how your eye plays a trick on you. I actually feel like there is a massive trench in the road. The correct term for this wonderful 3D illusion is  “anamorphic street painting" - and it is fast becoming a popular style of street art!

I hope your weekend has been wicked so far! Happy Sunday-funday lovelies.
