• The history of street art on the pavement from the middle ages to the present day
Modern artists creative feeling surge energy master surface and any application method. Even chalk drawings on the pavement, which in our childhood was a privilege only children younger today become a real art direction. Oddly enough, but the roots of this tradition goes back centuries, and similar professional figures can be seen even on the streets of the medieval streets.
This game appeared in the XVI century in Italy. During the holidays, artists created on the streets of drawings on religious themes, mainly painting Madonna with a little Jesus in her arms. Therefore, these "paintings" were called madonnari. It also refers to the artists themselves, who were often itinerant craftsmen. It is believed that such an unusual hobby came up raspischiki who were brought to the big cities for the decoration of large cathedrals. After many years of construction was completed, the whole Artel artists often remained without a job and earned money at fairs and festivals, drawing directly on the cobbles all the same faces of the saints. Painted not so, as it is now. Given the characteristics of the old bridge, the image is created using sawdust, sand and multi-colored flower petals.
This tradition, by the way, remained in Italy is almost in its original form. In May and June across the country festivals paintings of flower petals. The figures are for a few days and then it goes straight for the procession. From modern street-art, so popular around the world, these images are not only technology, but also the lack of 3D-effect. That's what drew them in the old days.
Contemporary artists to create the effect of volume in full use the perspective distortion method - anamorphism. Therefore, their figures look so magically from a single point, and when viewed from the wrong side turned into a strange elongated image.
To create each of this figure requires serious preparation. First, the artist creates a drawing sketch, and to calculate it requires sizable mathematical ability, you ought to consider, from a point of drawing will look perfect and make a calculation taking into account the growth of the average person.
Then the sketch is transferred to the work surface first in a loop, and only then drawing is painted.
Despite the fact that the equipment and methods of 3D graphics today is used about the same, creativity of artists bears the stamp of individuality, otherwise it would not be art. Many famous artists have received today world famous for such "children's" artistry.

The townspeople loved Slaggo so that they consider it a local landmark. In stores you can buy T-shirts and caps with his picture.

Today creativity of street artists develops within the city of festivals and a simple hobby. Many advertisers are already thinking about what this type of iskusstva- a great way to attract attention, because such creations are always very popular with the audience and actually cause an increased interest. So, perhaps, we soon expect a new round of promotions.
And in Canada, the principles of street art, for example, put on road safety service. At one of the schools on the roadway was painted the girl as if to run out for the ball on the road.
