3D street art — alternatively known as pavement, chalk or sidewalk art — is a form of anamorphic art that sprawls over sidewalks, walls, and public spaces. In this form, artists use chalk or pastels to render pictures that use mathematical continuation of perspective to give the illusion of three-dimensionality. Though the medium is widely regarded as a modern art, street art traces its origins back to the Renaissance.

Julian Beever is an English artist who has been creating 3D street art since the mid 1990s. He first designs his work on paper, then places a camera on the pavement to observe the image from the lens, and distorts the angles to aid in creating perspective. Beever’s artworks are very interactive and are on display in Australia, England, Europe and America.
