I find this 3D painting exquisite. I can see that this has been skillfully constructed and it looks amazingly realistic. I admire Manfred’s meticulous eye for detail because this 3D painting is definitely deceiving. I like the idea to include real elements like rocks in order to enhance its illusory effects. The natural background has really enriched this 3D painting. I just love the concept.
About the Dvor Kralove Waterfall
I have learned that this kind of 3d Street Art is a 2D painting on the street that provides the spectator with a 3D optical illusion from a certain perspective. The waterfall was painted with acrylics on asphalt in the zoo of Dvor Kralove and it measures about 25 x 6 meters. The illusion is not actually pure painting – some real items (such as rocks) were included. Manfred also chose a natural setting with real trees, grasses and sky to make the entire picture appear believable.
About the Artist
Manfred Stader is recognized as a Master of 3d-Street Painting. Manfred started street painting and creating pavement art during his art studies at the famous Städel Artschool in Frankfurt. In 1985, he became one of the few street painter gurus. He was awarded the title Master Madonnaro by the largest international street painting competition in Grazie di Curtatone in Italy.
The 3-dimensional impression in his street paintings are made possible with the help of his knowledge in anamorphosis. He is able to create more optical height and width. His 3D street paintings are all especially admired during festivals and promotional events. Manfred combines folk art with the modern perception of illusion using pastel chalk. His interactive street art made him a popular street painter. His fans can pose in logical connection with the pavement art for either filming or photography purposes.
