Eumundi 3D progress 30-01-10

Hi to all, and thanks for the interest shown at the Eumundi Market. Today I put in some more detail on the stall tent roofs and brightened up the footpath edges. Still more can be done to add to the realism, we will see what happens as time permits. Cheers, Brian.

Most recent painting

Just to move away from my street art for a moment, here is a picture of my latest painting titled "Jack". It is painted with Oils on Canvas and is 1200mm by1500mm in size. I enjoy surrealism and imaginary realism so will be painting more works in this style.

As you can see, the white pillars are now gone, only took 5 hours to paint out(they were over 12 meters long). Much simpler to see the 3D image now.
Time to start adding people and some more realistic colouring.
Another lady, gotta go, more later. Cheers, Brian.

A note from me, the artist: I have had a few comments about the four white columns. These were intended to be an "impossible illusion" such as drawn by an artist called Escher. (He was known for his drawings of impossible architecture, such as the steps that don't get anywhere). In my artwork,the pillars stand behind the bridge at the top, but in front of the bridge at the bottom; which is structurally impossible (but tricky?). However this is confusing to many people, so to simplify the 3D illusion, I have decided to remove the pillars. So in future pics the pillars will be gone..da-dah! Cheers, Brian.

Another few hours playing in the sun with paint and brush; the colours and details emerge.

Another day in the sun and the picture develops. Should have the main areas blocked out then I'll ready to put in some detail.

3D Continues at Eumundi 11/01/10

After a few days delay due to rain, the project continues.
A few areas blocked in and some more details added, and the picture begins to emerge.
So far so good, I will keep you this space.
Cheers, Brian


Hi to all those who saw and asked what I am doing on the roadway at Eumundi Markets. This is progress so far on a 3D artwork that will become clearer as the work progresses. See if you can work out what it might be. There is a LOT more to be done, and I will update this blog each time. Cheers, Brian


A bit of street art to liven up the pavement at Mooloolaba over the Xmas holidays. These illusions wre painted in Acrylic so they will last for a bit longer than Chalk. Both made to look like the pavers have broken and the viewer can look through to the view beyond. If someone stands on the surfboard in the wave picture, they look like they are riding the wave.


Good Ol' Nambour came alive on December the fifth to celebrate the new streetscapes. I went along and drew a Chalk 3D hole in the new work, complete with witches hat and frog in trouble. PS; luckily no-one fell in.


End of October last year, I competed in the Festival held in Church St Parramatta. Four days of fun on the pavement in the sun with thirty or more other artists painting with chalk on canvas. The theme was "Climate Change"; my caption was "Should we be worried, or just party on while the ice goes down the Gurgler?" And at the end I won the PEOPLE'S CHOICE award. Hope you like it too.


On an area of concrete pavement outside The Mad Fish restaurant in Caloundra,I created this 3D Chalk painting to compliment the name of the restaurant. It took two full days to complete, and a week for the skin to grow back on my fingertips!
