I love TED…..no really, I love what TED brings to the world through inspirational speakers, intelligent content and always amazing experiences. So when TEDxFoggyBottom director, Brian Doyle, invited me to participate in this years event with a 3D street painting &/or an Augmented Reality installation, I couldn’t pass up the opportunity.
I’d presented at TEDxSanDiego a few years back and was just blown away by my experience there. That event broadened my ever expanding view of the wonderful people around me, who are doing amazing things right here, right now, for the world at large. To be included in that family has just been an incredible honor for me, which also brings a big, ridiculous smile to my face.
On New Year’s Eve, Studio 21 gallery curator & friend Manas Acharya, invited me to present a short demo and lecture on my work and the 3d street painting art form. A perfect venue for a street art offering, Studio 21 not only showcases new artists but has championed the street art genre in Calcutta. There has been tremendous interest regarding street art genres in India in the last
One of the things I love most about my profession is the ability to give back and share by educating others about 3d street painting. My schedule is often very hectic yet when good opportunities come up to work with children, I usually find a way to

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.
