Julian Beever is an English chalk artist who has been creating chalk drawings on pavement surfaces since the mid-1990s. His works are created using a projection called anamorphosis, which is a distorted projection or perspective requiring the viewer to use special devices or occupy a specific vantage point to reconstitute the image. Basically, his images create the illusion of three dimensions when viewed from the correct angle.

Besides this pavement art, Beever also paints murals with acrylic paints and replicas of the works of masters and oil paintings, and creates collages. He works as a freelance performance artist and creates murals for companies. He has worked in the UK, Belgium, France, The Netherlands, Germany, Austria, Denmark, Spain, the U.S., Australia, Brazil and Argentina.

Let’s Be Friends

This drawing was done in Tokyo for the TV show ‘Unbelievable’ and was a plea to Japan to appreciate the beauty of living whales.

Taking the Plunge

Julian loves to interact with his work. In this photo, he puts on a swimming suit and gets ready to take a dive into his work.

That hemmed in feeling…

This depiction is of Julian trying to help some people out of a dungeon or some kind of pit trap. He does a great job of pulling in the audience around his work also.
