Julian Beever

Julian Beever
Julian Beever is probably the best known practitioner of “Pavement Art”, highly rendered drawings on city sidewalks. Some of them are portraits or reproductions of old masters, but the most interesting are anamorphic distortions that, when viewed from a certain angle, give a striking illusion of 3 dimensionality. The technique is reminiscent of the old master trick of creating apparently distorted paintings that only assume proper appearance when viewed in the curved surface of a reflective vase or bowl.

    Hello!

    I work in Sweden with events, and I would so much like to work with Julian. I have tried all the links above to reach him, but the page is not working and so I need his e-mail adress. Please dear Sir, is it possible to e-mail me instead. I have really tried everywere to get his contacts on the Internet.

    Best Regards from lovely Sweden

    Karin,

    Unfortunately, I have not kept Julian’s email address on record. The best I can say is that his site has gone offline before, only to reappear later. My suggestion is to bookmark it and check it over the next several days (or more) to see if it comes back.

    I am trying to contact Julian Beever for over a year now, but I haven’t been successfull yet! His e-mail doesn’t work, so I like to call him. Does anyone has a telephone number for me? That would be great! Thanks!

    I too have been trying to contact Julien. Does anyone have a contact number, or could they at least tell me if he does ‘corporate event’ work, so I know whether to keep trying or to give up? Thank you.
