I was super impressed with this wonderful 3D illusion work of Julian. I find it very ingenious and how I wish I can also have a picture of myself sitting next to the giant snail. This is one of the most spectacular illusion pieces that he had produced in his entire career as a visual artist. It looks very interactive and attention-grabbing.

About the Author
Julian Beever was born in Cheltenham, UK in 1959. Julian went to state schools and studied Art at Leeds Met. College from 1979-83. Julian started street artwork as an entertainer, attracting distinctive nations including the USA, Australia and Europe to sponsor his voyages. He started anamorphic street illusions during the 1990’s.
His earlier works were pictures of well-known individuals which worked best in getting quick responses from passers-by. He created his 3 dimensional or “anamorphic” street drawings because of his adoration of the medium. Some have named him “the Pavement Picasso”. Julian has generated incredible interest from the corporate business world and has worked in 28 nations.
Julian still catches time to do drawings for his own fulfillment. Each of his drawings must be seen from one perspective and if the viewer moves from it, the deception is lost and the drawing turns into a surreal distortion. It is the web that has made his works popular to the world.
