We just love how art can bring the most surreal situations to life. Whether it’s a park filled with larger-than-life animals or even graffiti that makes us think about nature, art has a wonderful way of shaking up our everyday lives. The chalk art done by David Zinn is no exception.

You might think that you had some skills when it came to making sidewalk chalk masterpieces, but we entreat you to take a look at some of Zinn’s creations.

Just check out this little piggy attempting to entice a fish.
