Amazing 3D Street Art

I love to see the different imaginitive ways that artists make bring their illustrations to life and so far this one takes the biscuit. A selection of different street artists have moved on from the stereotypical Mary Poppins chimney sweep style to a new and exciting talent, creating 3D illusions and bringing life to their once lifeless designs.

After browsing the internet I've decided to showcase some of my favourites:

To summarise, I love these pieces of street art. The last two interestingly advertise two brands the middle one is for Compare The Market and the bottom one is for an insurance company named HDI. It's true that these street art pieces are captivating to passers-by but what about the incorporation of this style into magazines and flyers? These inspirational artists leave me wondering whether or not the same effect can be created through traditional print media.
