Massive 3D Street Art

Massive 3D Street Art
Jeff Squires

Last year, during the Festival of World Culture in Ireland, German artist Edgar Mueller painted one his iconic optical illusions over a 250 square meter patch of asphalt.  Using acrylic wall paint to create the scene, it took the artist five days, working 12 hours a day to paint the massive crevasse; which, from the right perspective, looks remarkably realistic.

The below video is a great time lapse piece depicting the creation of the illusion as well as the curious interactions people have with it.
