Creativity Makes the World More Beautiful!

By
Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Realty

As professionals in real estate we often look at property through different eyes than the general public.  Training and experience gives us a unique perspective that can allow us to see beauty in the most mundane and decrepit areas or properties.  A client recently sent me pictures from a unique artist.  This artist uses his creativity to transform a simple sidewalk into a visual masterpiece with just his artistic ability and some chalk.

His name is Julian Beever and he is famous for his art on the pavement of England, France, Germany, America, Australia and Belgium.  The images almost look real, though at times you can see squares of pavement if you look closely.  Scroll down to see his unique talent, and remember that we all, regardless of what we do for a living, can help make the world a little more beautiful around us each day.

I have seen this art before-(via an email swap)  and it is incredibly mindboggling to have depth like it does!

First time seeing the pics but they are wonderful.  When I use to go to NYU the floor in the library use to play with your depth perception as well but not like these.

Quite an artist this guy! Now I have to find somehting which could be used in real estate in some similar way! I have seen some nifty painting on some agent's cars. In real estate some go to tacky to tasteful but both seem to get the point accross.Great pics!
