A unique piece of mind-boggling illusionary art is taking shape outside Oldham Art Gallery this week.
Over three days the internationally acclaimed pavement artists Urban Canvas will create a one-off piece of 3D art as part of this year’s Festival Oldham activities. Using only pastels and poster paint the large-scale artwork will magically rise from the pavement, creating a giant gravity defying masterpiece when viewed from above.
On the final day the artists will invite you onto the art for a unique photo opportunity… but be careful where you walk, and don’t look down!
The finished artwork has also been designed to form a striking visual backdrop for the ‘Rooted’ event taking place at Gallery Oldham on Saturday 24th May from 12noon to 4pm. Skateboarding demonstrations and a special BMX dance show will be performed on the 3D artwork at the free event that also features live music, theatre and crafts.
