Pavement Artist Extraordinary
Here's an irony. In London yesterday, the day of the fire near the Royal Academy of Arts, England's most celebrated pavement artist, Julian Beever, was chalking his latest masterpiece: Batman and Robin rescuing him from a burning building! Julian has taken the art of perspective into a brilliant realm: anamorphism. Using only a flat pavement for his canvas, he chalks three-dimensional works that fool the eye when viewed from the correct angle. He enters some of his pictures - as here - to complete the illusion. Pity he can't paint such images on a roll-up rubber mat so they could be shown in art galleries round the world. His website is well worth visiting; click the title link. The Daily Mail has a larger version of the above picture.
