Julian Beever And His Amazing Three Dimensional Pavement Art!

Julian Beever is a world famous English artist known for his anamorphic street paintings. Anamorphic is a big word that simply means the artworks are painted in a distorted fashion, stretched out on the ground, but when viewed from a specific place the art becomes stunningly realistic and three dimensional. Julian has painted on pavement in England, France, USA, Belgium, Germany, and Australia. You'll enjoy this portfolio of his work.

A very three dimensional look to the word 'world', keep in mind that this is a flat, two dimensional painting. Julian has placed himself to appear to be supporting the 'W' and the young lady is simply on the ground quite a distance away. Weird!

Photobucket
This painting of a giant frog seems to hover over the child. Almost worrisome.

Julian is in progress on another pavemant painting in this photograph.

Here is the completed artwork with a young boy standing on the piece. At first glance it sure seems the boy is on top of a concrete pedestal admiring the work. The pedestal is part of the art.

Photobucket
Fantasy huge butterfly about to alight on a lucky young man's hand. Occasionally a person says his work is grafitti but almost overwhelmingly Julian says the response is positive.

Poor Julian atop a beer bottle begging the girl for a sip. He actually is quite a ways down the block kneeling at the top of the flat painting. We're guessing by the girl and the subject matter that this painting was done in Germany for Oktoberfest but we are not sure.

Looks like the man at the top right corner of the painted hole in the ground is just missing a tumble into the construction site. It was a worksite exactly like this that inspired Julian to begin painting anamorphic street art. He saw tiles in a street removed and began attempting to duplicate the effect of depth.

Photobucket
Wow! Everything is fake. The drain, the water in the street, the hose and hose reel, even the water coming out of the hose and splashing on the street below.

Photobucket
Sure they are smiling now but wait until they see the crocodile! Oh, all painted, sorry.

Photobucket
This jazz band is literally busting out of the pavement of New Orleans, Louisiana.

Photobucket
Looks like a seal has popped up from a watery hole in the street and is wreaking havoc on Julian's art supplies! Julian creates these works with chalk, not paint. Rain is a constant fear as the works can take up to three days to complete but he says he usually gets the work done without incident.

Photobucket
Work has come to a stop on this busy street as the crew has busted the pavement and revealed a mosaic buried in the Roman ruins.

Photobucket
Julian is posing in front of a whimsical artwork that shows Felix the Cat dressed as a dragon. It happened to be the Chinese Year of the Dog, and Chinese New Year, so I guess Felix was out to get the last laugh for the year.

Photobucket
Politicians being sucked into a pit. Hell perhaps? This is surely a popular work, wouldn't you believe?

Photobucket
A creepy work called 'Baby Food' has a giant lobster threatening to eat a child if you so dared to pose them in the bowl.

Photobucket
Here the anamorphic technique becomes much more clear as you can see how distorted the image of the lobster is when viewed from the incorrect spot. Look at the previous image agaiin and see the amazing transformation.

Photobucket
Another great shot of a distended painting, obviously Earth, but not making any sense at all.

Photobucket
When viewed from the correct angle, especially with Julian adding a little perspective by standing at the North Pole, the artwork becomes amazing.

Photobucket
A dungeon right in the middle of a city street!
Julian says of his work "My art is for anybody, it's for people who wouldn't go into an art gallery. It's art for the people. Art shouldn't be locked away in galleries and libraries and books. Art should be for everybody and not just art buffs, historians and so-called experts."

Photobucket
Snata Claus looks surprised when Julina discovers his secret workshop just beneath the streets. He will be even more shocked if the artist drops the child!

Photobucket
This huge flying insect has just fallen vicitm to the bug spray that Julian has shot him with. One of his creepier and icky kind of works.

Photobucket
A very cool self-portrait that comes alive when Julian joins the image and appears to be looking into a mirror, or drawing himself, or both. If this were 'The Twilight Zone' soon Julian would find parts of his 'real' body becoming erased, vanishing.

Books As Art. Not Writing As Art. Books As Art!

Robot Nine loves books.
Reading them, collecting them, the weight of the book in your hands, the smell of the pages.
As the world moves along we perhaps will become an anachronism.
Books may one day cease to exist as we know them.
It is sad for us but things like the cool Kindle from Amazon exist and will only get better. Ah well, some artists we have found are using books to create very interesting pieces that we thought we would share with you, since Robot Nine loves art as much as we love books.




Just pages curled into a stiffened shape. Sometimes the same thing I did accidently by leaving books outside as a child become art in the hands of a creative artist.

Watch A Chicken Develop Inside The Egg!

An incredible series of photographs show the entire process of an egg developing froma yolk to a chick. Watch the process as veins develop, a vessal system forms and a tiny ill-formed appearing hint of tissue takes shape. In the final stages a small, wet, goggle eyed chicken is visible, ready to hatch into the world.

After escaping the egg the baby chick is totally cute!
Robot Nine ran across these images with no ther information so there is no information as to how they were taken. Seems to be in a biology lab with the embryo and fetus immeresed in a nutrient solution. Amazing.

I'm not sure of the exact translation of the name of this game, 'TORA 3', but I am thinking it might be something along the lines of GRABaBOOB!
