We are all well aware of what graffiti art is since we have been seeing it for a while now on our street walls and in the movies where they show the street walls with tons of graffiti. What most of you were perhaps not aware of was the new boom in street painting where not the walls but the actual streets are painted with either chalk or paint in a manner. The pictures painted give a 3D impression and combine Renaissance art with the usual art seen on the streets and walls via graffiti. What this means is, and people who have seen it with their own will second it, that graffiti has now been given a whole new look and while it was a form of art before as well, now it has become a proper skill. It is not possible for everyone to achieve the level of expertise of 3D street graffiti that has been achieved by the artists that will be mentioning in this article. Given below are the top ten 3D graffiti artists.
10. Kurt Wenner
There is a popular form of art known as Renaissance classicism and Kurt Wenner is perhaps the only artist with a graffiti skill so strong that he converted the complex art form in 3D graffiti. The intent of his street art is to be able to present Renaissance art in a way that it appeals to the newer generation as well as gets to be compatible with the new age of art. Kurt has been appreciated for his art work in various documentaries and television features. Kurt, who worked as a NASA illustrator initially, has also mastered the technique of painting his pictures in a manner that they don’t seem distorted to the viewer no matter what angle they are viewed at.
9. Edgar Muller and Manfred Stader
The next painters that we are going to mention for the excellence in 3D street painting are from a German origin. They are known for creating normal streets painting but in a way that they have a touch of the Renaissance era about them. They are expert anamorphic street artists albeit with a background in realism which proves to be their edge while street painting. The couple is known to have taught street painting in the universities and have won many competitions for their amazing talent which can be seen in the images attached.
8. Julian Beever
We next have a street artists known as The Pavement Picasso. This nickname attributed to the painter Julian Beever speaks more than words ever will regarding his amazing talent in street paint or should we call it street chalking. He one whole day to create amazing anamorphic pictures on the pavements but with chalk which means that they wash away the moment rain falls and this can only be recalled through memory. He is an English artist and we respect him for having the courage to see his art being washed away. It’s like painting something on the shore, something that remains only till the waves don’t hit. He has been painting and chalking the streets since the 1990s and many a times his drawings have gone viral over the internet.
7. Tracy Lee Stum
We next have a female street artists who holds the Guinness World Record for the biggest street painting by an individual. Tracy Lee Stum completed the painting in 2006 and apart from that, she has attended various events and festivals all over the world stunning people through her amazing skill. She does not stick to one form theme and if you take a look at her various works, you shall see that the paintings range from bizarre to mundane, from exoticism to biblical.
6. Eduardo Relero
The next street painter that we have on our list of the top ten 3D graffiti artists is Eduardo Relero, a painter who bases all of his work on a background story. One glance at his art and you shall have the feeling that it tells a tale. Sadly for an international audience, the painter only works in Spain.
5. Rod Tyron
Rod Tyron is the next anamorphic artist that we have on our list. He has been working on his amazing chalk drawings since the year 1996. The artist himself has claimed that he is especially interested in drawings where the onlooker would feel as if the image is coming right at it, just like the experience of a 3D movie in a cinema. Another avenue of his drawings is holes, holes that appear as if they would swallow you right up! He states that watching the viewers’ reaction to his paintings brings endless joy for him.
4. Greg Brown
We next come to Greg Brown, an artist whose work may not be in the reach of all and sundry, but one thing can be said with conviction, each and every piece of work that he creates for his valuable clients stand out like no other piece of art. This means that he gives his hundred percent to each of his clients, never copying, never remaking and never repeating. The images that he creates seem to jump out at the person looking at them and that is the epitome of his skill. Furthermore, his work is not limited to one theme only.
3. Eric Gohe
Eric Gohe is known all over the US for turning simple, blank and blunt walls into masterpieces of art. Dare we call them The Sistine walls (referring to The Sistine Chapel)? Before he started is artful painting on the walls, Eric was a graphic designer as is the case with so many other street artists. He focuses all of his work on a patriotic all American theme. His work is not just limited to the US but includes several other parts of the world as well for example Kuala Lumpur.
We next come to another artist who belongs to Germany. He holds the Guinness world record for the most graffiti spray images ever made. He started displaying his expertise in this particular skill in the year 1989.
1. Alexandre Farto aka VHILS
This last artist that we are going to mention needs no introduction. He is from Moscow and when it comes to appreciation for his work, words just fall short. An image is attached for your kind perusal.
