I was recently in Venice, Florida, for the Chalk Festival. I had the honor to help some days the crew that created the largest anamorphic 3D street pavement piece, brooking the Guinness World Record!
The original design was by Kurt Wenner, the innovator of anamorphic pavement art, who designed a 42′ x 450′ pavement painting, an 18,900 square foot illusion featuring the extinct Megalodon Shark to honor Venice as the Shark Tooth Capital of the World.
The crew was held by Julie Kirk. Great artist took part in the project. Over the eleven days the artists increased the painting by 3,847.60 feet, changed the shark’s tail and added fossils to the design. It was fantastic. It took 45 Artists 12 days to paint it. It’s 22,747.6 square feet!
The Guinness Book 3D installation took place at the Venice Municipal Airport Festival Grounds.
