World's largest and longest 3D street painting made its debut on Wednesday in Nanjing, capital of Jiangsu Province.

The 365-meter long street painting titled "Rhythms of Youth" was presented to the public for the first time on a lane on the campus of the Nanjing branch of the Communication University of China(CUCN) on Wednesday.

The gigantic 3D street painting, or anamorphic painting, covering an area of more than 2,600 square meters, has set two new Guinness World Records as the world's largest and longest street painting.

Its creators led by famous Chinese artist Yang Yongchun were awarded the certificate by the Guinness World Records, the global authority on record-breaking, on Tuesday at a ceremony held in the university.

"It took my team more than 20 days to finish the painting on the ground. Every day, we worked on it from daybreak when we could barely tell the colors apart until it turned too dark to see anything. We've devoted all of our time, energy and attention to this painting," said Yang Yongchun.

Yang said this creation was a gift to the upcoming 2nd Summer Youth Olympic Games which is scheduled for August 16-28, 2014, in the city of Nanjing.

The painting "Rhythms of Youth" features in the Youth Olympic Games and the Nanjing cityscape, including the painting of the games' mascot Lele, the bird view of major architectures in Nanjing and the Yangtze River that runs through the city.

The painting stretches out all the way down the lane connecting a major road in the end, and the artists managed to connect the students walking on the campus to the street art.

"We didn't expect there would be so many students walking around there. So we've figured out a way to incorporate the pedestrians into our creation. We extended the painting to the busy road over there, and combined the reality with the art in this way," said Xu Yanting, student of Yang Yongchun who participated in the creation of the Rhythms of Youth.

The giant street painting is schedule to stay open to the public for next two months on the campus.

The 3D painting, also known as anamorphic painting, is the artwork painted in a distorted way to make it look correct from a vantage point of view.
