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

The Colors of Willemstad is a relatively new event, celebrating it’s 2nd anniversary in 2011. I was invited to attend and create a signature 3D Street Painting to wow the folks of Curacao. My team and I arrived on a Monday and began work on Wednesday. We enjoyed a great day at the beach on Tuesday, soaking up some of the wonderful Caribbean sun and enjoying the warm tropical waters. A great way to get into street painting mode!
3d chalk art melts before your eyes! Freshly back from lovely south Florida where I just participated in the 17th Annual Lake Worth Street Painting Festival. I’ve been supporting this event for years in response to former festival director Maryanne Webber’s gracious support of my work. With the primary objective of raising funding for scholastic grants to support local aspiring young artists, this non-profit event attracts upwards of 100,000 visitors each year and they certainly know how to put on a quality show!

Ole! Just arrived home from beautiful Pamplona, Spain where I was commissioned to create a holiday marketing 3d street painting for a national bank, specifically their bank card services. Our site was situated adjacent to the famous Plaza de Torros, where the Running of the Bulls takes place annually. Pamplona is a beautiful city that sits atop a hill over looking the valleys below. Charming cafes, churches, shops and bar/restaurants keep the city pulsing with life and activity.
Another off the wall, well, on the floor, project of a different kind: make a 3D street painting permanent on a well trafficked section of pavement used by skateboarders.
It was going to be Halloween weekend. Add a street painting festival to the equation and what do you get? Spirited artists, incredible street paintings and a whole lot of fun!
