Just coming off of the Academy Awards with 4 Oscars to it’s name, ‘Life of Pi’ proved to be a visual powerhouse and mesmerizing cinematic achievement for 20th Century Fox. To celebrate the DVD launch of this hit film I’ll be drawing up one of the iconic scenes from the picture at LA Live /…
Some people insist that size does matter! Well if that’s the case, street painters in south Florida should be pretty darn happy. Big asphalt, big crowds, big fun. That about sums up last weekends events in lovely Lake Worth, Florida, where I participated as a featured artist in the 19th edition of the Lake Worth Street Painting Festival.
It was hot, sunny and only rained briefly (sudden rain is typical in Florida this time of year) – perfect conditions for a chalk festival. I decided on a 3D image of Machu Picchu, which I had the good fortune of visiting in 2012. I had these terrific photos on my iPad that I had taken at the site so I used those on a free-hand design that seemed perfect for my piece of asphalt. Easy, no stress, pure flow – just the way I like it!
This festival combines art, food, music and entertainment for the entire Palm Beach county and southern Florida. Crowds upwards of 100,000 show up annually to check out the hundreds of
Many of you may know that I am a real advocate for eduction, especially when it comes to my art form – 3d street painting. I’ve created a free ‘How To’ video – for those interested in learning the basics of 3d work which can be easily accessed on the home page of my website – as well as an easy to use e-book on the topic. These are great tools for anyone hoping to get started in the world of 3d street painting.
But my real love lies in direct appearance workshops, where I can freely interact with
For all of my non-Canadian friends, here is a terrific new show that features fringe and unique art from all over North America – ‘That’s Art.’ I’m pleased to announce that my work and I have been featured in episode 10, which was broadcast in Canada this past fall. Things look good for future broadcasts…

Engaging on the third such tour in the last 4 years, I was graciously hosted by the US Department of State & the US Embassy / American Corner in Tajikistan
What a truly beautiful place to draw! This was my first trip to gorgeous Victoria, British Columbia and it certainly won’t be my last. I had been invited by festival organizer John Vickers to feature my chalk art at the 1st Annual Victoria International Chalk Art Society Festival, in downtown Victoria.
I arrived early in the week to begin my rather large painting, sized 20′ x 20′, which was being showcased indoors at The Bay Center. Since this was an indoor installation I used a stretched canvas to work on, which yielded a beautiful and rich drawing. My image’s design was based on Aboriginal
To make a splash in New York during Fashion Week takes some thought and creativity, so Chrysler decided that 3D street painting was the way to go when announcing the launch of their new John Varvatos designed edition of the 300C. John Varvatos is the king of rock fashion, with a signature store located on the site of the defunkt iconic New York underground music venue, CBGB & OMFUG. I had frequented CBGB back in my youth, so it was a bit ironic that I’d be drawing on that sidewalk in 2012. The cool part of the location was seeing the old club walls, preserved by Varvatos as homage to the venue, with some original murals still visible on the untouched walls.
Outside we were going to bring the pavement to life and create a little bit of magic by showcasing the Chrysler on a city ‘catwalk’ as a 3D street painting – with a nod to Varvatos’s love for

Is it real… or is it 3D Chalk Art?
That was the question in New York’s Meat Packing District on August 1 & 2 when my team, Sharyn Namnath, Rod Tryon and myself, created a dimensional roadway street painting in 3D for Nissan. The event announced the launch of Nissan’s 2013 Pathfinder, which is billed as an all city, all terrain vehicle. I was tasked with the fun job of making the car appear to drive down out of the Manhattan street into the wild blue yonder.
