Kurt Wenner, Pioneer in 3D Art

American artist Kurt Wenner is best known for the invention of interactive 3D pavement art illusions. His work also includes large-scale oil paintings, ceramic murals, sculptures, decorations, 3D installations, and architectural designs for public and private clients in more than 30 countries.

In 1982 Kurt Wenner combined traditional street painting techniques with his classical training and understanding of illusion to invent an art form all his own. This has come to be known as anamorphic, illusionistic, or 3D pavement art. In 1985, National Geographic documented Wenner’s unique and innovative works of art in their award- winning film Masterpieces in Chalk. Today all artists creating 3D pavement artworks can trace its origins back to Wenner’s invention.

Kurt Wenner will be at this year's Utah Arts Festival (June 24 - June 28) for lecture and daily demonstrations.
