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 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 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
