Julian Beever


I spend a lot of time looking at other artists work online and people often email me things they find interesting. The video above shows chalk artist Julian Beever at work. He creates these amazing optical illusions with chalk. After snoring through 12 plus credits of art history when I was in school (not that that's not important too) I'm always happy to find art that's engaging and interactive and unique. Here is a link to some more of his work.  I think it would be great for local artists to take one sunny day this summer and create their own chalk masterpieces (perhaps not optical illusions) all over St. Albans downtown. Anyone interested should contact me.

My timing in posting it was funny because he was featured in a story on CBS Sunday Morning this past weekend!
