For the Malta Street Art Festival, Dutch artist Leon Keer (previously) painted a stretch of sidewalk with an illusion straight out of a fairy tale: giant gummy bears converging together.
From up close, the 3D painting seems skewed and random, forcing curious passers-by to take a closer look. But when seen from above 10-metres, the illusion suddenly comes to life, showing a group of gummy bears gathering around their fallen friend, green gummy bear. It’s a delightful sight until you see the grim story behind it.
And the cause of death? Unknown, but most likely it had too much sugar. Get it? Get it? Head on over here to see more of Keer’s works.
