When a drawing is made from any one dimension and a picture is taken from the same dimension it gives effect of 3D image or 3 dimensional images. 3D art is created on horizontal surface either by painting, chalking or drawing. 3D is a vey old form of art as old as 15th century, painters of those time used to decorate the house of wealthy people with these 3D effects and designs.
So since then on, 3D art became widely popular not only for entertainment purpose bit also for branding and advertisement. With increase in demand of this popular art, a number of designers are trying to excel in this art and some of the designers have emerged with spectacular and eye catching designs which have compelled the visitors to check their galleries often.
