Born in Ann Arbor, Michigan, Kurt Wenner boasts to be the inventor of 3D pastel drawings. At the age of sixteen, he created his first commissioned mural and by seventeen, he was able to earn his living as a graphic artist. Kurt attended both Art Center College of Design and Rhode Island School of Design. According to his official website, 3D Sidewalk Artists, 3D Pavement Artists, and 3D Chalk artists can all trace the roots of their work back to Rome’s street art in 1982, where and when Kurt transformed the complex geometry of Classical Italian Architecture into a new form of Popular Art. They can be traced back to Kurt Wenner pastel drawings if they have a 3D illusion, despite that they are called Sidewalk Paintings, Street Paintings, Chalk Paintings, or pavement art.
