Julian Beever creates 3D illusions on the High Streets of the world. Beever, the Pavement Picasso, uses pastels for pavement drawings that appear to be more dimensional than they really are. Beever distorts the drawings in a specific way by using a camera on a tripod, creating anamorphisms, to give the impression of three dimensions, but this can only be seen from one particular perspective. The pieces can be in production for up to 3 days, during which time not a drop of rain can fall.
