Art for the masses

I came across this trompe d'oeil artist by chance and thought you might enjoy his work. It's all done in chalk on pavement and is transient.

I invite everyone to share his or her favorite art pieces

On request, I fixed it, although I kinda liked it as it was since, not being an "arty" type, I thought I was missing something subliminal

Sorry, it appears that I have forgotten how to spell this morning. The mods have already offered to fix it.
Now back to our regularly scheduled programming.......

Nope, nothing subliminal. DW has been called me a nass for the past 43 years...

I've seen those 3D chalk on pavement works a few times, they're astonishing, even more so in person. I just can't get my (engineer) head around how they acheive such a sense of depth, it's beyond me. Thanks for sharing!
