The Incredible World Of 3D Street Art
3D street art —
alternatively known as pavement, chalk or sidewalk art — is a form of
anamorphic art pioneered by American Kurt Wenner. Sprawling over sidewalks,
walls, and public spaces, 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.
The penchant for
putting chalk to sidewalk was practiced widely by Italian vagabond
artists. Known as the Madonnari because of their copious
reproductions of Madonna, the artists would travel between festivals,
creating religious works from brick, charcoal, colored stones and chalk.
Giving credence to the ‘starving artist’ stereotype, the Madonnari lived
solely off the coins passers-by tossed at them for their skill. This
practice continued for centuries until the hardships of WW2 significantly
reduced the numbers of the Madonnari. However, the art form was
revitalized thanks to the International Street Painting Festival in
Northern Italy, and the tradition has morphed and continued to date.
pioneer of 3D street art, Kurt Wenner saw the artistic possibilities of
combining the traditional street technique of the Madonnari, with his
classical training in architecture and perspective. Born in Michigan,
Wenner studied at the Art Centre College of Design and Rhode Island
School of Design, and had a short stint at NASA before leaving to study
art in Italy in 1982. He first introduced the concept of 3D pavement art
the Santa Barbara Museum of Art and founded the first street painting
festival, The Old Mission Festival, in the US in 1980.
always uses the language of classicism to tell a story. He developed 3D
specifically to highlight the relevance of classical art in understanding
modern art. All of the current 3D street artists can trace their roots
back to Wenner’s vision, though nowadays,
most use computer programs or simplified geometry to create the illusions
that Wenner was able to do free hand.
