2017 Spring/Summer Street Painting Festival update

2017 street painting festival season always starts in warm and dry Lake Worth, Florida. My Cat Woman [ Eartha Kitt ] piece in black and white with accent colored eyes and background was a fun creation and a hit.  I continued with the campy super hero pin-up for a new festival in Burnaby BC, Canada with Wonder Woman [ Lynda Carter ].

Late spring kicked off with the ‘Summer of Love’ Exhibition opening at the De Young Museum with a portrait rendition of Grace Slick from Jefferson Airplane – A 1967 favorite! I was the featured artists showcased for the opening day event. Thank you to Italian Street Painting Marin!

In June, the ‘Summer of Love’ continued at my hometown festival with a celebrating the same theme. I created another black and white portrait – – this time of Jim Morrison ( The Doors )

This August, I will be heading to Italy to create a portrait of the Virgin Madonna at the oldest street painting festival in the world celebrating their 45th year in Montova, Grazie di Curtatone. The weekend after, I will be featured with other International Madonnari at a new festival in Kevalaer, a pilgrimage city in Germany. Check out my post on Facebook for the next chalk murals.

Come back and check out my Fall line-up soon!

 

 

 

2015 Street Painting Year End update

It has been a wonderful 2015 of chalk street painting. I traveled in the U.S. coast to coast from California to Florida, in between States and around the globe creating my favorite chalk murals. (Santa Barbara, CA; San Rafael, CA; San Francisco, CA; Daly City, CA; Lake Worth, Florida; Marietta, Georgia; Arhem, Holland; Victoria, Canada; Suzhou, China; Venice, Florida; Houston, Texas.  I am so happy to make these ephemeral art with my community of street painters — I’m very lucky indeed.

This summer, I made my first ‘wet media’ street painting in Arnhem, the Netherlands at the 2nd World Street Painting Festival. Thank you to the organizers for that opportunity. Just recently, I was one of the 3 artists to bring the art of street painting to the 1st China (Suzhou) Pastel Festival. I created a 3D design celebrating the Chinese calendar ‘Year of the Goat’.

The Fall season is here and the Sarasota/Venice CHALK Festival kicks off on Nov 9-14. 2D, 3D, vertical 4D and the world record for the largest street painting will be there. Houston’s VIA COLORI will be the following weekend Nov. 21-22 celebrating their 10th Year anniversary.

I’ve been invited back to the Lake Worth Street Painting Festival on February in Florida to start the winter chalking season. Stay tuned for more in 2016! Thank you for visiting.
