Art for the people
I was walking along a quiet city street when suddenly I saw the most amazing thing: three young women were standing on a narrow window ledge on the top of the building which was on fire. Below them Batman and Robin were climbing up a rope to save them as a crowd of people stood and stared. What was really strange was that everything seemed to be happening in a large hole in the pavement in front of me. I couldn’t believe my eyes. It took me a few seconds to realise it wasn’t real; it was a work of art.
The man responsible for it was Julian Beever, a British artist known as ‘pavement Picasso’, who has been drawing his colourful masterpieces in cities around the world since the 1990s. Julian uses a method called ‘anamorphosis’ to create his wonderful drawings in three dimensions. It’s a question of perspective: from one side the 3D illusion is perfect, but from the other side the drawing makes no sense.
Julian draws in chalk, so his work is vulnerable to the weather: if it rains, the drawings disappear. It’s hard work and it can take up to three days to complete a drawing, so Julian always checks the weather forecast very carefully. His final goal is to take a take a photograph of his creation before it gets washed away. However, sometimes Julian has to wash off his own unfinished drawings because he hasn’t received permission to use the public pavement as his canvas.
The process of making the drawings is really worth seeing, so Julian often has an audience. In some ways he’s a street performer, and the spectators enjoy the show as much as the end result.
He does 20 drawings, too: portraits of famous people like Princess Diana or Bill Clinton, copies of old masters, and self-portraits. And also wall murals, collages and oil paintings.
Julian’s work shoes that you don’t need to work in a studio to be an artist, so that you don’t need a frame for every painting. He firmly believes that art shouldn’t be locked away in galleries, libraries and glassy art books. “My art is for anybody, it’s for people who wouldn’t go into an art gallery. It’s art for the people.”

Краткое описание документа:
Предлагаю вариант контрольной работы (теста) по третьему модулю в 9-м классе УМК Spotlight. Всего их два. Такие же тесты делаю на все модули в 8, 9, 10 классах. Контрольные работы по первому модулю в 8 классе уже были опубликованы ранее. Материал для теста взят из разных источников, в том числе, и свои собственные наработки. Материал для тестов для аудирования и чтения для 9-го класса часто беру из учебных пособий, которые также использую для подготовки к ГИА -- в частности, мне нравится Exam activator издательства Longman. Также брала задания из Grammar book любимого мною учебника Enterprise.
