Keeping To An Art Theme,

some 2D into 3D street art,

 these from Russian-born artist Nikolaj Arndt,

who now uses a blend of pigments, water and sugar to keep his drawings from blowing away in the wind as he works,

after spending one summer attending sidewalk art festivals in his new home of Germany purely as a spectator, Arndt returned to try his hand at the craft, blowing passersby away with each 3D illusion, in an interview with pxleyes, the artist explains that some works might only last a couple days before they’re scrubbed away, while authorities in other cities actually attempt to preserve the sidewalk drawings as long as possible using varnish, what a shame to scrub them away, but I guess the authorities know best, for a look at more of his work have a look here.
