Someone recently turned me onto an artist named Ben Glenn, aka the "chalk guy."
Ben is a master of perspective, able to create works on the streets in 2 dimension that are so good they fool the eyes into thinking they are 3D. He
uses chalk to do his works and, well, like the attached video is titled, "This will blow you away!" I can hardly believe what I am seeing is done on
a flat surface. These things look like you can go inside them. These are not photoshopped either.
Ben is also a professional speaker who discusses his experience with dyslexia and ADHD. He has motivated thousands of students, teachers, businessmen
and pro athletes. Ben is quite humorous and maintains a love of life attitude.
He is able to complete his works in a very short time, as if he just turns on and goes, without much contemplation.
I know this is not new, but I thought folks here would dig it and it would be nice to have his works in the archives here.
Thanks for the reply tw, and yes I agree, truly mind blowing perspective. I thought the pics were not real at first. At least there are pics of his
work so that they can continue to be enjoyed.
This guy is pretty cool too: www.belowtopsecret.com...
Being into art and one who loves to draw. I am IN AWE of this man! This is amazing. I have seen street artists in the French Quarter do things like
this, but not as well. I also thought it was fake at first! EXCELLENT! Thanx for sharing!
Hey alexs, he does make some earnings and puts most of it in his workshops, lecture and teaching kids with AHD and ADDS. He also has a friend
photographer that is keeping track of it all. You are right, these need to be preserved, even though being there would be better than a picture.
