At its best, street art and graffiti stops you in your tracks. In fact, the results are often jaw-dropping. And while virtual and augmented reality is all the rage, certain artists have been creating 3D street art for quite some time.

When we think of 3D art, the most common form that springs to mind is the incredible chalk art which uses mathematical perspective and artistic skill to brighten sidewalks. Rightly so, the results merit the immense praise lavished on artists like Leon Keer or Nikolaj Arndt.

However, 3D street art takes many forms. Whether through the classical trompe l'oeil murals of Patrick Commecy or the anamorphic art of Odeith and Alexis Facca, each has a way of playing with optical illusions. And if you are looking to throw on an old-fashioned pair of 3D glasses? Artist Alice Pasquini has you covered. Her Underlayers project sucks you into her artwork through 3D photographic techniques.

Let's take a look at the incredible variety of 3D graffiti that takes advantage of optical illusions to bring you into an artistic fantasy land.

3D street art comes in all shapes and sizes, from anamorphic illusions to trompe l'oeil murals.
