Do look down! Dramatic 3D image of Kate and Will's wedding sketched on a Sydney street


Best of British: British street artist Joe Hill has been allowed to work on a large area close to the city's Harbour including this stunning 3D image of the Royal Wedding in April on a Sydney pavement

The marriage of Kate Middleton and Prince William was the event that captivated the whole world.

And now this dazzling 3D image showing April's Royal Wedding has been plastered on a Sydney pavement to encourage more Australians to visit the UK.

British street artist Joe Hill has been allowed to work on a large area close to the city's Harbour Bridge dedicated to our most iconic items, events and places.

Game, set and match: Artist Joe Hill poses with one of his works featuring Centre Court at Wimbledon as part of the VisitBritain tourism campaign at Circular Quay in Australia

From our red post boxes to the Centre Court at Wimbledon the pair have used all their skills to make them come alive in the Australian sunshine at the famous Circular Quay.

These have been done as part of the VisitBritain tourism campaign.

For seven years Joe has travelled to huge cities like New York and Shanghai creating unique 3D street art as well as completing many projects in their home city of London.

Many of these were with partner Max Lowry, who died suddenly last year.

Their famous images fooled pedestrians into thinking there is a gaping hole in front of them and have also focussed on politics, once painting Gordon Brown and Alistair Darling falling down a black hole outside the Treasury building before one of their Budgets was announced.

The past-master of the 3D pavement genre is widely recognised as street artist Kurt Wenner.

The American's three-dimensional chalk pictures have included muses swimming in a pond by the side of a road in Lucernes, Switzerland, a Judgement Day scene in a medieval town square, and a virtual Renaissance city painted on the pavement in Bettona, Italy.

Finished: Joe signs off the work done
