Artist Sarah Graham utilises art supplies to fool people into thinking that her paintings are three dimensional.
The artist stated on her official website that she has developed her own photorealist style that aims to create an image which is as life-like as possible and makes the viewer think that the painting is real.
Sarah Graham said: "I have been developing a method of painting specific to creating the illusion of three-dimensionality. I am so practised now in this particular method of painting it has become the most natural way for me to approach creating an image."
Ms Graham regularly creates paintings with art supplies that depict children's sweets like lollipops, pick 'n' mix confectionary, toys and popular vehicles such as Minis and VW camper vans.
Art website The Fine Art Blog has praised Sarah Graham's work for being so realistic that it became actually tempting.
The Blog said: "The end product of her work is very bright and colourful, and usually looks good enough to eat!!!"
Sarah Graham's career painting confectionary has its roots in her earlier job as an assistant on Woolworth's pick 'n' mix counter which she did before graduating from De Montfort University in Leicester with a BA in Fine Art in 2000.
Following graduation Sarah Graham became more established as an artist with exhibitions in New York, Melbourne and Sydney and she was eventually signed by fine art publisher Washington Green.
Marketing director Samantha Jackson told the Metro: "We expect Sarah's work to connect with a whole new generation of people looking for a highly original style of art to decorate their walls."
The Hitchin-born artist began to paint detailed portraits of university class mates from photographs after being inspired by German visual artist Gerhard Richter.
She said: "My hero and inspiration is the German painter Gerhard Richter, and he's still prolific at 76, it's hard to even comprehend managing that, but I intend to give it a try."
Sarah Graham picked Richter as one of her five favourite artists in an edition of Fine Art Collector alongside American printmaker Andy Warhol, friend Charlotte Hardy, Yorkshire painter David Hockney, and contemporary artist Mitch Griffiths.
The artist is an inspiration for anyone looking to develop a creative career after buying art materials and art supplies.
Helen Rochfort has previously teamed up with Sarah Graham to create a limited edition of handbags feature kitsch pictures.
What is 3d Street Art Painting and how can it be used for Advertising, PR and Brand promotion?
3d Street Art Painting is known by several different names; 3d Street Art Painting, 3d Pavement Art, 3d Chalk Art, 3d Sidewalk Art. They are all types of art created by pavement artist's in public spaces. When the artwork is viewed from a specific angle and distance through the lens of a camera the picture appears to become three dimensional. It's all created by tricking the eyes and mind with angles and distance, what seems close up is larger to see and the smaller an object is the further away it seems. So if you paint an object very long and narrow it creates the illusion of depth. When created by an experienced artist, the results are mind blowing! Holes and crevasses appear in the road and dragons and monsters can magically appear to hover above the ground. Almost anything can be created in a 3d Street Art picture and I am going to show you how it can be used with spectacular results in your advertising campaigns.

3D Street Art Painting has been around since the 16th century. Originally created by Italian Renaissance Madonarro's and Trompe l'eil painters from France, it has continued to be highly popular and it's magic has been captured by Wiley Admen in the twenty first century.
3D Street Art Painting creates a 3D effect from a 2D picture when viewed through the lens of a camera. It's an exceptionally difficult type of art and only perfected today by a handful of artists including Julian Beever, Edgar Muller and the team of artists at Street Advertising Services in the UK. It's created by painting an object close to the lens compact and squashed and and objects far away are painted in a stretched out way, the effect is a trick on the eye and a mind blowing illusion of 3D depth. Over the last few years Ad Agencies have turned to the 3D pavement artists to create highly effective advertising and PR campaigns.
So how does it work and why is it so effective?
3D Street Art Painting in Advertising works so brilliantly in two words: entertain and inform. Isn't that what the best adverts do? Entertain and inform and that's what 3D pavement art is so good at. When a consumer sees a piece of 3D street art painitng, they recognise the image and shape etc of the content but it's only when they are advised to look through the lens of their mobile phone camera that the magic happens. There is always an 'aha' moment that the picture jumps into 3d in their eyes, which is what makes it so entertaining. The next stage in the process is the consumer asking, 'how does it work and what's this for?'. That's the opportunity for brand ambassadors to explain the 3d process and inform them of the brand's message.
OK so 3D street art painting works great in an experiential campaign or live event, what are the other benefits?
Not only is the consumer entertained and informed by the artwork, the next step is to interact with the picture. Encouraged by the artist and brand ambassadors, they walk on to the picture and have their photo taken with it. The photo is taken on the consumer's mobile phone and the photo is then uploaded to Facebook, Twitter and Flickr to show their friends and family. The result? Start of a viral campaign.
Are there any other ways 3D Street Art painting works for a brand?
Probably the biggest benefit of using 3D in your advertising or PR campaign is free media coverage. Because the pictures work so well in photographs, press exposure is almost expected.
Street Advertising Services 3D street art campaigns have been featured in all the national newspapers in the UK as well as regionals and also TV exposure on programs such as BBC news, Sky News and Blue Peter! They have some excellent case studies on how 3d street art can be used effectively in your next campaign.
