4D Street Painting debuting at Bienal del Sur en Panama

 

 

 

 

 

I’m very excited and pleased to announce that I will be showcasing the very best in 4d street painting at the inaugural Bienal del Sur en Panama, which opens April 15 in beautiful Panama City. This international exhibition, host to over 200 artists from around the globe, is shaping up to be a major player on the contemporary art circuit.

Organized by Roxana Mendez de Obarrio, Mayor of Panama City, in partnership with Luz Botero, Advisor for the Promotion of Arts and Culture, this event is entitled ‘Summoning Worlds’ and focuses on “exploring ways to transform the city and its surroundings in a certain manner, actually involving the spectators in a constant dialogue and interaction with these structural practices. Such interventions shall be oriented towards logical and participatory processes, to work projects involving the public, towards proposals of access to technology and to present forms of communication in a temporary habitat of artistic experiences.”

The opening of the show will be April 15 and will extend through May, 2013. Luminaries such as Zaha Hadid & ROA will be participating, with artists representing the best in architecture,

3D Chalk Art at Lake Worth Street Painting Festival – Year 19!

3d street painting machu-picchuSome 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

3D Gator Strikes at Student Street Painting Workshop

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

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. 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
