3D Painting Is a Whole Process That Your Audience Will Follow

Creating an amazing piece of 3D art can take a whole day or more. In general, it is painted directly on the pavement and thus visible to the public – whether participants of a particular event or passersby. This means that a lot of people will watch its evolution until the final result. By following the painting process on a day-to-day basis your audience will be curious about the final art work and therefore feel involved.

It’s Interactive: Let People Take Part!

As an advertiser, you definitely want your audience to recall what you’re promoting. The perfect way to reach this goal is to get people involved and give them the opportunity to interact with your brand or product.

A great thing with 3D art: the public can become a part of it! Anyone can stand in front or top of a piece of pavement or wall art. If you look from the right perspective, it looks like this person is actually standing on the edge of a huge cliff, above a mysterious cave or in the middle of an immense waterfall.

According to Adry del Rocio:“in a world where we have so much access to images and where we’ve lost our ability to be surprised, 3D is funny and gives an opportunity to be part of it, people enjoy interacting with it”.

Viral Effect : It Will Get Shared On The Internet

What happens when people see a stunning piece of 3D art: they love it and take pictures! Chances are huge that pictures (or videos) of your 3D painting ad end up on social media and advertising blogs Impressive visuals such as 3D art pieces are likely to get shared and become viral.

In 2011, Reebok collaborated with artist “3D Joe and Max”; their goal was to break the Guinness World Record for the largest 3D painting in order to promote its ‘Reebok CrossFit’ program. The outcome after ten days of work was a 1160m2 piece of 3D art painted in London with which people were invited to interact. The project received wide media coverage on social media as well as on various specialized blogs and websites.

3D painter Manfred Stader has collaborated with many brands such as Samsung, Fuji Xerox and Speedo, creating unique and interactive pavement art.

Italian artist Peeta has been painting for more than twenty years, focusing on lettering and typography. By stylizing individual letters and giving them special shapes and volumes he’s breaking them from their initial form and gives them a whole new meaning. According to him, “3D art fits with the audience’s everyday visual experience and so becomes immediately familiar by using a visual language which perfectly mingles with the surrounding world. Even when shapes are not realistic and interpretable they are still familiar objects, comprehensible through the volume they occupy in real world”.

Adry & Carlos and Vera Bugatti have also created unique and colorful pieces of wall and pavement art for brands like Adidas and Disney.

It’s Varied And Surprising

Playing with perspectives isn’t only for pavement art. Have you ever heard of anamorphic painting? Vera Bugatti has been using this technique for several years: she’s painting distorted images that the viewer can se precisely when it’s reflected on cylindrical mirrors.

Vera considers that 3D painting has “a stronger impact than non-3D art, and surely has a big power on delivering messages” to the audience.
