The sketches below are all drawn by the 21-year-old Nagai Hideyuki from Japan. Inspired by British 3D street artist Julian Beever, Hide uses the same projection technique called anamorphosis which allows to create 3D illusion when viewed from the correct angle.
At the age of 17, the artist wanted to become a cartoonist, but didn’t have the talent to draw comics. However, three years later, after seeing Julian Beever’s street art in the newspaper, Hide decided to create art in the streets of Japan. But he soon realized that it was against the law. This is how he ended up drawing on paper.
