Street Art: Kurt Wenner's Amazing Spiderman

Kurt Wenner Amazing Superman 3D street art

Errm, wow. This isn’t actually new, but it’s new to me. This amazing 3D optical illusion is by Kurt Wenner, an ex-NASA empoyee, who uses his considerable mathematical ability to create 3D illusions on pavements throughout the world. He’s been honing this skill for 30 years and bloomin’ hell, it’s fantastic! If only Carol Vorderman used her skills in the same way, we’d all be a lot happier…

Brilliantly, when viewed at the right angle, people standing on the drawings look like they’re floating in air…or walking on webs cast by Spiderman.

I’m truly gobsmacked by such talent. Here’s another of Kurt’s creations…showing the man at work. Incredible.

Ps. I don’t get it either. But I do think it’s wonderful. And that’s enough for me…
