[FONT=&quot]Julian Beever is an English artist who is famous for his anamorphic art on the pavements of England, France, Germany, USA, Australia and Belgium[/FONT][FONT=&quot].[/FONT]


[FONT=&quot]Hard to believe that the little boy is standing flat on the pavement!
[/FONT]
[FONT=&quot] [/FONT][FONT=&quot]Julian admits that some people see his work as graffiti,and don't feel it has a place on public streets. Happily, he says, he mostly receives a positive reaction and people like and enjoy his art.
