Victoria International Chalk Art Society Festival 2012

Vcitoria Chalk Art Festival - Tracy Lee StumVictoria International Chalk Art Society Festival 2012What 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

3D Street Painting for Chrysler rocks as Chalk Art

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.

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.

3D Chalk Art Debuts at Colors of St. Petersburg, Russia

I had the wonderful pleasure to participate as an invited artist at the 1st Annual ‘Colors of St. Petersburg’ Street Painting Festival this summer. I had traveled to St. Petersburg in 2010 and was excited about returning to draw with the national artists. I used this opportunity to present my work via a 3D street painting master class for participants, and a hands on workshop painting with a crew of local artists who proved to be not only talented, but great fun to
