window ledge

hole in the pavement



three dimensions

vulnerable to the weather

final goal

receive permissions





oil paintings: landscapes and still life


  1. Reading. Read the text and complete  it with the given parts of the sentences.

Don’t forget that first you look through the text and then read the parts of the sentences to complete with. Remember that one sentence is extra.




I was walking along a quiet city  street (1)_________________________: three young women were standing on a narrow window ledge: on top of a building which was on fire. Below Batman and Robin were climbing up a rope (2) ________________________stood and stared. What was really strange was that everything seemed to be happening in a large hole in pavement in front of me. I couldn’t believe my eyes. It took me a few seconds to realise it wasn’t real;  it was a work of art.

The man responsible for it was Julian Beever, (3) ______________________ , who has been drawing his colourful masterpieces in cities around the world since the 1990s. Julian uses a method called “anamorphsis” to create his wonderful drawings in three dimensions. It’s a question of perspective: from one side the 3D illusion is perfect, but (4) _____________________ .

Julian draws in chalk, so his work is vulnerable to the weather: if it rains, the drawings disappear. It’s hard work and (5) ___________________, so Julian always checks the weather forecast very carefully. His final goal is to take a photograph of his creation before it gets washed away. However, sometimes Julian has to wash off his own unfinished drawings because he hasn’t received permission to use the public pavement as his canvas.

The process of making the drawings is really worth seeing, so Julian often has an audience. In some ways he’s a street performer, and the spectators enjoy the show as much as the end result.

He does 2D drawings, too: portraits of famous people like Princess Diana or Bill Clinton, copies of old masters, and self-portraits. And also wall murals, collages and oil paitings (both landscapes and still lifes).

Julian’s work shows that (6) _____________________to be an artist, and that you don’t need a frame for every painting. He firmly believes that art shouldn’t be locked away in galleries, libraries and glossy art books. “My art is for anybody, (7) ________________________ . It’s art for the people”.

 Teacher: Ok, Tracy, tell us about your group’s project.

Tracy: We wanted to find out what teenagers do in their free time, so we went into the playground and asked you the question: “What’s your favourite kind of entertainment?” What you didn’t know is that we were recording your replies… Daren…

Daren: Drawing and painting. In fact, the only thing I like at school is art. I draw in pencil or charcoal, and, I paint, usually watercolours. I love landscapes most. I’d like to be an artist. I go to a lot of galleries and exhibitions. I like photography, too. I take a lot of photographs. Especially portraits of my girlfriend.

Tracy: Jessica….

Jessica: I love music, not just rap, all sorts, reggae, rock, punk, heavy, even some classical stuff. One time I went to an opera, it was amazing. I’m in a rap group. I compose the songs and I sing, but I don’t play any instruments. We’ve recorded a demo CD and we’re playing a concert on Saturday. Why don’t you come along?

Tracy: Tanya…

Tanya: I watch telly. A lot. We’ve got cable TV so there’re hundreds of channels. And we got a large screen plasma TV for Christmas. Action film look incredible on it. I like soaps, reality shows and game shows, but I really prefer sit-coms and drama series, especially Desperate Housewives. My brother only likes cartoons so we’re always fighting for the remote control.

Tracy: Scott…

Scott: Reading. My house is full of books. My dad loves bestsellers, especially detective stories, and my mum reads historical novels. I love fantasy, horror and science fiction, but I read anything: fact or fiction, poetry, newspapers, magazines, even school books! I’d like to be a writer. I’ve written some short stories and a screenplay for a film.

Tracy: Fiona…

Fiona: My boyfriend’s studying to be an actor, so we go to see a lot of films and plays. I’m too shy to get up on a stage or to act in front of a camera, but it would be great to work in the theatre or in the cinema. I could be a make-up artist or work on the special effects or maybe even be a director. I’ll probably end up selling tickets in the box-office though.
