I find this pavement artwork awe inspiring. This is a brilliant example of art for a cause. I personally support such advocacy to promote safe food and environment. I find it realistic and beautiful. I believe that the Green Peace effort of Kurt in this 3D pavement artwork has made this painting more interesting.
About the Greenpeace – Million Signatures
This Greenpeace – Million Signatures pavement artwork is a campaign for GMO freeze. Kurt painted this pavement illusion in Brussels, Belgium. Everything looks 3 dimensional because Kurt used the art of anamorphic painting. He used his skills as a 3D pavement artist to give a total makeover to the ordinary pavement. He has exhibited his exceptional talent in creating a magnificent portal which can bring people to a new dimension.
