Amazing 3D Street Paintings Of Kurt Wenner

Category: , , , , By Fun Fever
Kurt Wenner was born in Ann Arbor in Michigan. He attended both Rhode Island School of Design and Art Center College of Design. He was employed by NASA as an advanced scientific space illustrator, creating conceptual paintings of future space projects and extra-terrestrial landscapes according to the latest scientific information provided by the Voyager spacecraft. He is an artist best known for his street painting and chalk muralsprojection called anamorphosis. These 3D chalk drawings on pavement have been featured in many newspapers and on several television shows. In anamorphic art, paintings are meant to “deceive the eye”. A painting may look ordinary from one angle, but view it with a curved lens and it becomes 3-dimensional.

It may interest you to know that Kurt is the artist who first developed the technique of illusionistic street painting in the early 1980s in Europe. His early work and development of this street painting technique was documented by National Geographic in a documentary film “Masterpieces in Chalk.” He has taught a few artists and has had many others try to imitate the technique, which he considers a compliment.
