3D Chalk Art Drives Nissan

3D Chalk Art 2013 Nissan Pathfinder - Tracy Lee Stum

 

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

3D Street Painting by World-Class Chalk Artists in Chile

Hola amigos! Magical, inspiring and ingenious – that how I’d describe my latest 3d chalk art adventure in beautiful Chile. My dear pal, Sharyn Namnath and I jetted down to lovely coastal Antofagasta, Chile to participate in the highly anticipated ‘Dia del Ingenio’ – 3d Street Painting extravaganza, sponsored by 3M. Slated for May 3, 3M decided to bring 3 of the world’s best street painters down to Chile, to simultaneously create 3 large scale 3d images, signature pieces created by each artist to promote ingenuity in the arts. You can see 3 is definitely the lucky number here!

Of course I was honored to be one of the three, and was excited to be drawing with world phenom Julian Beever, topping the bill in Santiago, and street painting icon, Kurt Wenner, making magic in Concepcion. The whacky thing about this was that we did not know about the other artists until we arrived, so it was a surprise for us for sure. Talk about turning the pressure on! So we put our best foot forward and hoped that our painting would please the people of Antofagasta.

Incredible 3D Street Art India

3D Street Art Makes a Heartfelt Mark on India

3D street art in Kolkata, India with Tracy Lee Stum

Incredible! Truly the perfect adjective that springs to mind when summing up the latest art adventure I’ve recently had the good fortune to experience. From across oceans, deserts and mountains, and into the kaleidoscopic sanctum of my mind / heart – India and its people do not disappoint.

Invited back by the US Consulate of India to appear on a second edition of my 2009 3D Street Painting Tour, I was honored to conduct workshops and create exhibition pieces at amazing venues around the country: the renowned Jaipur Literary Festival (where I missed Oprah by days!); the renowned Kolkata Book Fair & Nandan Arts Center, Kolkata; Vellore Institute of Technology’s Riviera

3D Street Painting on the Russian Riviera

Sochi Park 3D Street Painting by Tracy Lee Stum

As part of the 2011 International Investment Forum, I was invited to the beautiful coastal city of Sochi, Russia, on the Black Sea, to create one of my 3D street painting images. Sochi is a lot like Santa Barbara or the Amalfi Coast in Italy – a gorgeous location with lots to do in the sun and sea. If you’re looking for a great vacation get away, this is it. The Sochi Park organization, who is currently constructing a new amusement park which will be opening in conjunction with the 2014 Olympic Games to be held in Sochi, asked for an image that showcased their new rides, the scenery of this lovely city and some of the folk tale characters that are near and dear to the Russian populations’ hearts.  The 3D chalk art image proved to be very popular with the public and local Russian TV had a field day with it. My clients were thrilled with the result, which was the best compliment for me. I suspect we’ll be seeing more 3D street art appearing
