Pavement Chalk Artist: The Three-Dimensional Drawings of Julian Beever

Fascinating pavement chalk art by a master of the craft.

The pavement chalk artist is a master of art, perspective, creativity and performance. Julian Beever is one such extraordinary master.

More than just traditional flat drawings, the works Beever creates are uniquely three-dimensional anamorphic drawings. They are drawn in perspective and distorted so the subject can be viewed properly only from one particular viewpoint. For those who are standing in the right place, his chalk drawings invite them to step right into the scene or, in the case of the artist‘s well-known Swimming Pool in the High Street, dive right into the water.

Pavement Chalk Artist includes a fabulous selection of Beever’s most intriguing anamorphic drawings. Each one is accompanied by a description of the techniques he used and the challenges he overcame. These photographs record the development of his unusual skill and understanding of perspective. Readers can see how his art progresses and matures as he takes on commissioned works and a wealth of original, inventive subjects in locations worldwide.

The photographs tell the story, giving readers both an understanding of the principles of this 3-D art form and the pleasure of sharing the scenes that passersby once enjoyed before these unique works disappeared forever.

    Amazing book, amazing art! An amazing book about an amazing artist! You won’t believe your eyes! Julian Beever is a pavement chalk artist unlike any other. The drawings shown in this book appear so real, so lifelike, so dimensional, that you sometimes have to look extremely hard to find the sidewalk beneath. I’ve shown this book to young and old, and no one’s been able to stop themselves from gazing in wonder at every page. I’m mesmerized by the pictures and completely intrigued by his techniques and this unique art form. A book you’ll pick up again and again and again.

    Very Clever Photographs do not do justice to this mans work. I would dearly love to see the actual works of art. Brilliant. It’s a pity that some of the pictures are not shown from a different point of view to see what they actually look like.
