World’s Largest and Longest Anamorphic Painting in Nanjing

In celebration of the upcoming 2014 Youth Olympic Games taking place in Nanjing in eastern China, Chinese artist Yang Yong-chun created the world’s largest and longest anamorphic – or 3D – painting. The 1,228-foot-long painting, entitled “The Rhythm of Youth,” portrays scenery including China’s Yangtze River, snowy mountains, flowerbeds, Nanjing’s architecture and the Youth Olympics’ mascot. The painting took six months to plan and, over the course of 20 days, 22 artists worked together with binoculars and walkie-talkies (since the painting area was so vast) to execute the immense artwork. The result is a record-breaking painting that is beautiful and impressive. To see more photos, go to: http://travel.cnn.com/worlds-biggest-3d-painting-exhibition-051926
