Amazing 3D Swimming Pools

Swimming Pools in 3D – I’ve got these pictures from an anonymous person who emailed me, using the Send us Tips form, but he or she sent me only the pictures, no details about the artist or the company that made these amazing 3D swimming pools, but who knows maybe someone who’s reading this blog might know something and post comment. Now coming back to these swimming pools pictures we can see that the artist has just painted the side walls and the floor in such a manner that creates an interesting illusion, , when filled with water. Enjoy the Swimming Pools!

Later edit – We found that Robert Vogland is the designer behind this project and his work can be seen at www.vogland.com, www.vogland.net.

    Looks very neat! I was imagining paints on the side that look like.. mini tunnels or something?

    These are chalk drawings, and the artist is named Julian Beever. He has worked in the U.K., Belgium, France, The Netherlands, Germany, the USA and Australia for over ten years. Google his name, he has done some work that I find much more amazing.

  9. September 3, 2007

    This is awesome!

    who did this?

    I wonder whether these are by the same guy that does those amazing 3D sidewalk drawngs.

  18. Matthew said:
    September 3, 2007

    these are actually pre-made tiles that can be placed into your pool spa or fountain when they do the final surface finish. My family just got the pool redone and we placed a few fish and a turtle in ours, sans shadows. these ones however look like they’ve been done in mosaic tile, which would mean an actual artisan is involved(think: more $).

    That’s amazing, I’ve seen the other types, like in the middle of the street, but I’ve never seen pool chalk art. Fantastic…

  27. September 4, 2007

    Absolutely brilliant collection. I love the first pic

    I have a big green turtle in my pool too! Made it myself. It’s a mosaic. It’s not exactly 3-D but it has some highlights and shadows. We sometimes stand on it and “ride”.

    September 4, 2007

    Looks pretty awesome. Is there a large market for this type of thing? It look a bit elitist but if you can afford it what the heck…go for it. I probably would. Now how about that godzilla scene where he rises out of the ocen to eat japan, you know…that country that bombed us with mitsubishi zeros that are now expenxive imports that americans drive. Well, young americans…ww2 era folks don’t tend to buy those crazy jap traps.

  37. Mylo said:
    September 4, 2007

    Why wouldn’t you just get a regular pool? Still, it looks amazing.

  38. eric said:
    September 4, 2007

    those walls aren’t painted, they are made with 1″x1″ glass tiles, designed for high-end bathrooms and pools.

    there is a guy in Tucson, AZ that does it, and I know there are a few others in America and a bunch in Europe. the “true” artists use imported venetian tile. if the plaster in a pool runs $2k, glass tile like that might run $20k if imported from mexico, or $40k if imported from italy.

    it is an amazing effect when the pool is full of water.

  39. Andy said:
    September 4, 2007

    Yeah, totally sweet! I wish we could find out who’s responsible for these works of art.

    Beautiful is the word which comes first to my mind… well!! this seems quiet high-ticket… but certainly better then those silly 2D effects…

  51. Derrick said:

  60. Lucretia said:
    September 5, 2007

    These are not chalk drawings, if you notice, there is water in the pool in some of the photographs. And the shark clearly looks like mosaic tile. And they’re laying the tiles in one of the photos. Hahah. But, this would probably cost you 1000$ a mosaic based on what my grandfather’s terrazzo and tile company charges and depending on how big they are and how long it takes. But yeah, they’re very nice mosaics. Makes me think of a roman bath house.

    It’s really amazing to see other artwork like this. They obviously put their time and feeling into it.

  62. Joshua said:
    September 5, 2007

    and they actually look decent when viewing them at different angles, which is just shocking.

    Only 2D with shadows.

    One of those pools belongs to a coworker of mine! The pool was done by Robert Vogland. You can see his work on his website: http://www.vogland.com

    I saw this as street art (chalk) before but this is the first time I see them in a swimming pool, it’s quite cool actually.

  73. November 15, 2007

    That shark is classic. I wonder how it looks from other angles. Cool stuff!

  74. splash said:
    February 10, 2008

    Why not just fill it with water??? like a real pool?

  75. Tigerlover said:
    March 25, 2008

    this is realy cool. But why would you pay for a 3d pool that you can’t swim in? It realy makes no sence. But it would be a bit cool to have one anyway I guess.

    March 29, 2008

    i have to agree with tigerlover why would you want a fake pool. why not go for the real thing. not taking anything away from the art witch is excellent by the way just seems like a strange idea to me

  77. May 7, 2008

    Really nice… My kids would especially love the Nemo one. Maybe we’ll do that to our pool when the current plaster goes kaput!

  78. May 18, 2008
