You'll feel like you're right in the game with the '3D Super Mario Chalk Art.' These gamer-inspired pieces were created by Chris Carlson.

Each drawing is hyper-realistic -- they may be even clearer than the real game. The colors are totally vibrant, making every piece pop. You see plenty of the classic characters in these depictions, including Mario, Luigi, the piranha plant and even some goombas.

This isn't just another piece of Mario artwork; a ton of time went into the incredible detailing. In terms of getting each character exactly right, Carlson had to color each piece perfectly with shading, and making them come to life with a 3D effect. The pieces were done in a studio, but Carlson will hopefully take his art to the street for more to enjoy. Stats for Arcade-Inspired Graffiti (UPDATE) Trending: Older & Mild
