About this guy is amazing

Previous Entry this guy is amazing Oct. 15th, 2007 @ 03:57 pm Next Entry
Since a couple of months I am looking at the works of the amazing artist Julian Beever. Not only does he make astonishing pavement drawings but also oil paintings and wall murals.

Look what he has done in Edinbourgh for Live8 (Make Poverty History).

You´re welcome. Every time I look at his drawings, there´s another tiny detail that I´ve missed before.

That is truly amazing. I have trouble doodling on paper I can't even imagine making something look 3D on concrete. I've seen street drawings before but not 3D. He really has a unique talent.

Aw, Thank you! You're the first person to tell me that today (besides the Hub). Not even my daughter, she'll remember tonight when it's cake time though!

The way he handles the perspective on things is mind boggling! I don't understand how he does it!

BTW, Happy Birthday! I am the *worst* at ever remembering anyone's birthday, so I'm glad I stumbled in here and found out. Enjoy your day!

Thanks Cats! It's okay, I go into the next room and forget what I'm in there for, and if I'm that bad now there's no hope for me in my later years!

He is brilliant, I have been following his work for ages since I saw one of his pieces on a pavement in a town near where I live :-)

Very nice. I know the work of M.C. Escher because my dentist has a litho of his work nailed to the ceiling. Everytime I lay down in the chair I have a look upon his work "Hol en Bol" and I always discover something else. LOL. It keeps me distracted from the pain of course.
