Art and Beauty Tuesday--Rod Tryon
This 3-D sidewalk art is Koi Pond with Snake by Rod Tryon done for the International Art Festival in South Carolina. It took about 25 hours to complete and was 10' by 14'.
Rod is a street painting artist represented by Art for After Hours.
I think these street "paintings" are a breakthrough in art on the scale of the ancient Greeks first discovering how to use perspective. Unlike those upright works, these are on the ground, using such realism as to fool the eye and make you think you will fall into the koi pond or be bitten by the snake.
