The Awesome 3D Beach Art

Jamie Harkins is an artist and musician currently working out of his studio in Mount Maunganui, New Zealand. While the NZ native is best known for his paintings of surrealist landscapes, it’s his 3D beach art that has been garnering him recent attention, both locally and online.
Harkins uses the beach as his temporary canvas, collaborating with other artists such as Lucia Lupf, David Rendu and Constanza Nightingale; to create 3D landscapes by employing a similar visual technique that sidewalk chalk artists use.
The technique is known as anamorphosis. The image itself is distorted, but when viewed from a specific vantage point, a 3D effect on a 2D surface is achieved.
