3D Chalk God Blows Up in China (10 pieces)

Mr. Hou didn't expect to become an internet sensation after he uploaded some photos of his 3D chalk art pieces onto a Chinese forum a few weeks ago. After all, he's just an average Chinese citizen who enjoys drawing for his little boy. Now, people from all over the web are referring to him by a new nickname - "Chalk God." “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.”
