Yet another awesome artist hailing from China. Mr. Hou, otherwise known as the “Chalk God,” claims he’s just an average Chinese citizen who liked to draw for his son. When he uploaded photos of some of his street art at a Chinese forum, his popularity soared.

“I think these 3D artworks actually aren’t that rare/surprising, but the idea is very key, and only with the idea can you move people,“ says Mr. Hou. "For example, I once went to a tourist sight/attraction, and there was a sculpture at this intersection. Below the sculpture, on all four sides, were a bunch of advertisements for counterfeit official documents. I felt this was so representative of China today, so I started drawing, never expecting to become so popular.”
