The author of these great drawing is a super creative person also known as Pavement Picasso whose name is Julian Beever.
Not to reinvent the wheel I will cite Wikipedia: “Julian Beever is an English chalk artist who has been creating trompe-l’œil chalk drawings on pavement surfaces since the mid-1990s. His works are created using a projection called anamorphosis, and create the illusion of three dimensions when viewed from the correct angle.
Beever works as a freelance performance artist and creates murals for companies.” Keep in mind that every sidewalk drawing is entirely flat!
Phew, that was an easy introduction! Enjoy the pictures, my friends.
The Artist Faces HimselfHow did he know how he looks from the side? I bet he asked someone to take his picture in that position. And one little interesting detail - the beer on the left is real, not on the right.

Dies Irae (Day of Wrath)The day of wrath has begun with this hole on the pavement.
Batman & Robin to the RescueIt is still hard to believe that it is entirely flat surface.
Water RaftingThe illusion is quite strong here, of course they are just sitting in one place and look quite stupid for the people passing by.
AntsAt first, it is hard to understand what the drawing is all about. But I can cite the author from his website: “Ants : a colony of leaf-cutter ants builds a bridge in Buenos Aires.” Would you have guessed it?
Arctic street conditionsAfter a hard work a seal came out of the pavement and rewarded Julian Beever with a soft drink.
