Manfred Stader’s Cup of Coffee

For those of you who never heard of #Manfred Stader, he is one hell of a talented chalk artist. If I remember well, he even turned his talent into a full-time profession – travelling around the world, painting streets with unique chalk drawings that appear 3D if you look at them from certain perspective. Here’s a cup of coffee he did for Costa:

  1. I don’t think that is chalk. It doesn’t matter how good he is you would still be able to see the brick sidewalk under the drawing if it was chalk. Very talented indeed but not chalk.

  2. That’s chalk?!?!?! If so then it’s amazing, I assumed it was a large photo stretched, before being printed out so could be stuck on the floor to give that perspective trick.

  3. Mr. Stader’s COSTA coffee cup does not appear to be a chalk drawing. If it was, the texture in the street should show in the saucer and cup. Additionally, the cup is off center and the cup handle doesn’t look correct. Picture could use a more specific explanation.

  4. Nice but it would be cool if they could make it so it looks 3-D from all the way around that would be awesome!

  5. WOW! Chalk art with such delicate shadows, reflections and a hundred variations in whites—and somehow able to erase the uneven brick texture—WOW. I can believe Stader is that good. But my brain can’t, and it’s demanding photos from alternate angles. Really, it’s him, not me. Amazing.

  6. it’s not a chalk drawing, it’s a painting that’s been placed on the ground and probably painted into the cobblestones… the frog is laid on top of the painting with chaff. go to his website if you want more details on it.

    1. nice but can’t see the brick lines the cup and everything it looks so real.
