You`re a bigot and that makes you an idiot. You parade it around this site with great pride. So whatever you say is worthless.

For example, you`ve just pulled wikipedia out of your arse and you`re deluded enough to believe I`m doing it. I haven`t referenced wikipedia in anything, because it`s not a reliable source.

Art on a 2D surface that looks 3D from the right angle is the same thing as art on a 2D surface that looks 3D from the right angle, especially when they`re using the same technique to create the illusion of 3D. It`s not a major difference if the surface is horizontal or vertical. Contempory artists of this type don`t always use horizontal surfaces.

"Chalk painting? Wouldn`t that be chalk drawing?"

Naw, when chalk, or any other dry pigment (like pastels) is applied as areas of color, to basically cover the support - as opposed to applying it in lines, cross-hatching, etc, it is often called "painting" - at least in art instruction books.

In general, "drawings" are primarily about lines, and something primarily about areas of color are called paintings. So, there are ink drawings done with a pen, and ink paintings done with a brush. For example.

No, actually, not the same thing.

They need a trap door in places so when people "jump off" they really fall down and land on a big soft inflatable thing like stuntmen use, or into water. That would be funny, until someone had a heart attack and died.

Ancient Greek walls and canvases, but it`s the same thing.

It`s called trompe l`oeil nowadays. You can easily look it up. There are also extant original Roman trompe l`oeil paintings, unsurprisingly learnt from the Greeks.

They`re not as good as this sort of work, but they are the same sort of thing.

Then there are a whole slew of excellent trompe l`oeil paintings from the 15th century onwards in Europe, right on to modern times.

I particularly like "Escaping Criticism" by Caso:

>>The earliest known examples date back to ancient Greece

Really? Single-point perspective anamorphosis chalk drawings on ancient Greek sidewalks? You want to maybe provide a reference or link or something to back that up?

Chinese dude: This is our very original idea, and we are really proud of it.

The earliest known examples date back to ancient Greece, so you can`t really claim them as a USA thing.

Would have looked better if the colors weren`t so dull.
