3D Sidewalk Murals Invite Pedestrians to Interact with the Illusive Art

Artist Nikolaj Arndt continues to dazzle pedestrians with his remarkable sidewalk chalk abilities. Since 2009, the designer has created 3D works of sidewalk art that transform flat, grey pavement into a dynamically colorful canvas. “I use chalk and pigment. The pigment is the same as chalk, only in powder,” he told PxlEyes. “I use water with lots of sugar to dilute the pigment. The sticky base protects the work from the wind. To draw a picture I need an average of two days.” Even in just a matter of days, Arndt is capable of illustrating pieces that viewers can easily interact with.

“Those who want to try their hand at street art, I would say: Do not be afraid to experiment,” the artist advises. “Try something new, it is always interesting. For me the main thing in art is to give positive emotions to the audience. When people are smiling, looking at my pictures, I'm happy.”
