Art is not just something that is meant to be looked at, it is meant to be experienced. People will travel for hundreds and sometimes even thousands of miles to see a famous painting or sculpture, and it has the ability to move them and to bring up emotions in a very unique way. Although we often equate this type of art with a masterpiece, such as the Mona Lisa, it can also be seen in modern-day art that may take place right in your own area. The type of art that I’m speaking of is 3-D street art. This [More]
It doesn’t matter what type of event you are discussing, there is somebody that is going to do it bigger, better or faster. Many people strive to be the best at what they do but they may end up falling short of the mark. At some point or another, however, you will reach the top and then you may just be a world record holder. That is what happened with this impressive street art project. It took place back in November 2011 when London based street artists ‘3D Joe and Max’ teamed up with Reebok CrossFit. They started to put [More]
Street art can take on many different forms. In some cases, it can be quite small but the details make it look dramatic. In other cases, it may be larger and when that happens, there are often teams of artists that work together to get things done. When it comes to Tracy Lee Stum, however, she did something on her own that was not only monumental; it landed her a place in the Guinness Book of World Records. What Stum did was to create a professional 3D chalk art painting, but she did so on a very large scale. In [More]
When many of us think about art, the first thing we envision is a painting that hangs on a wall in a museum. Our thoughts may also go toward a sculpture, or perhaps even to a photograph but the fact of the matter is, there are numerous types of art and almost anything can be an art form, if it is done properly. One particular type of art that many people appreciate is 3-D street art, and these illusions are really a treat to the eyes. In this video, you get to see a wide variety of 3-D street art [More]
There is nothing quite like watching an artist at work. When somebody is truly gifted at their craft, it is not only the finished product that we appreciate; it is also the movement and the skill with which they create it. It doesn’t matter if you are talking about a sculpture carved out of rock or a painting that hangs on the wall, it is the journey of getting to the point where it is considered “a piece of art” that is truly amazing. This time lapse video shows a 3-D chalk art of Super Mario being created. It was [More]
Have you ever watched an artist work and it seems as if they can simply create something without any real effort on their part? It is true that they make it look effortless, and most of them are gifted in that area, but they will readily admit that anybody could do it if they only put their mind to it. That is also true of 3-D street art, and it might surprise you with exactly how possible it is for anyone to do. This video was created during the London Festival of Architecture in 2010. 3-D street artists, Philip Battle [More]
When you visit an art gallery, it can be quite an experience. As you move from one piece of art to another, it really fills you with appreciation, not only for the piece of art itself but also for the individual who was responsible for creating it. Although it certainly is possible to visit an art museum to see such a masterpiece, they are also seen in many other areas as well. I’m talking about 3-D street art, something that has been gaining in popularity in recent years; and for good reason. It is absolutely fantastic to see, and it [More]
People travel for long distances to see a well-known piece of art. There is something about it that fills us with wonder and really makes us appreciate the art and the person who is responsible for creating it. Although you certainly could go to a museum to see art, it is not always necessary to do so. At times, it may be as easy as stepping outside and looking down at the sidewalk. What I’m talking about is 3-D street art, and it is really a popular art form in many parts of the world. In fact, they hold a [More]
When you look at a wonderful piece of art, it may just make you think about how it was created and you might even begin to consider that it was impossible to do. Of course, we recognize that many people are skilled in the art form that they take part in, which is why they are able to do what seems to be impossible. We can get that feeling in any type of artwork, but it is especially felt when you look at a piece of 3-D street art. 3-D street art is drawn in such a way that it [More]
When it comes to art, we probably have our own, personal favorites. For some, it is a masterpiece, such as the Mona Lisa but for others, it may be ancient sculptures or perhaps even something more modern and contemporary. Although there are many different types of art to choose from, one that should certainly not be left out of the mix is 3-D street art. It is an art form that truly tantalizes the senses. Perhaps you have never had the opportunity to see 3-D street art in person, but you enjoy seeing pictures online. This video shows one of [More]
Perhaps you have had the experience of walking down the street when suddenly, you see a crowd gathered around somebody who is drawing on the sidewalk. That person is a chalk artist, and the three-dimensional images that they draw trick the eyes in rather interesting ways. You may not have even thought that this was an art form, but it is one that many people appreciate and they may even travel great distances to see these talented individuals work. This video shows some of the most fantastic sidewalk art that has ever been drawn. In particular, it is two of [More]
Many people appreciate art, because it makes them ponder over how a person could make something so beautiful. This is not something new, but artists have been doing this for thousands of years. There are newer forms of art, however, but that doesn’t make them any less amazing when they are done by somebody who is talented. Perhaps one of the more interesting of those art forms is 3-D street art, also known as sidewalk chalk art. Of course, people have been drawing on the sidewalk for many years with chalk, but you may never have seen anything quite like [More]
