The world, most recently via the internet, has marveled at these "3-D" street paintings. If you have been lucky enough to see one of these amazing artworks on the street (before it washed away) or if you have ever seen these on the internet (there have been enough passed around via email to crash any number of servers) - then you need to have this book in your home. It is the real story of the art of street painting as told by Kurt Wenner, the artist who brought his own illusionistic painting style to the art form to make it the sensation it is today. This book is really great, enjoyable easy read --- with AMAZING images of the art....
