Street art and graffiti have come a long way from “Stan was here” and “For a good time, call Gwen.” Today’s artists are international men of mystery, owners of million-dollar LA homes, and, in the case of the five featured here, creators of imaginary worlds so realistic it takes a triple-take to grasp exactly what you’re looking at.
Edgar Mueller, Julian Beever, Kurt Wenner, Manfred Stader, and Leon Keer are three of the world’s foremost experts on 3D street art. Each is behind astounding works of chalk art that trick the eye, amaze the mind, and blur the lines between fiction and reality.
From most perspectives, these eye-popping illustrations look distorted and unrecognisable – but occupy the right vantage point and you’re transported to a wonderful, whimsical three-dimensional world. See some of our favourite examples of 3D street art from around the world in the gallery above.
