For those of you who’re in Singapore, you might have noticed that a tent has been set up for an artist to sketch on the pavement tiles the past few days. While you may not know the name of this artist, it’s quite likely that you’ve seen some of his works whether in forwarded emails or links to the website, where he draws anamorphic illusions on pavements using chalk. When seen from a particular perspective, the drawing looks like 3D in perspective. Here’s a link to the archive of his works.
Above is the drawing – more commercialized and straightforward than some of his other decidedly more tantalizing works. It’s a pity, but I guess someone has to foot the bill after all.
