Just coming off of the Academy Awards with 4 Oscars to it’s name, ‘Life of Pi’ proved to be a visual powerhouse and mesmerizing cinematic achievement for 20th Century Fox. To celebrate the DVD launch of this hit film I’ll be drawing up one of the iconic scenes from the picture at LA Live / Staples Center complex in Los Angeles, March 10 – 12 as 3d street art.
If you’re in the LA area, come by to check out the 3d street painting emerge out of the center plaza!

What 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 (more…)
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 (more…)
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. (more…)
Drawing on streets worldwide, I’ve had the fantastic experience to recently showcase 3d street painting in amazing Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon), Vietnam. Commissioned by Unilever to support a new product launch in Vietnam, my good pal Sharon and I jetted to this exotic locale to meet some really amazing people and share 3d creations with the local youth.

Dia del Ingenio in Chile
Check out this amazingly cool video of my 3D street painting completed in Antofagasta, Chile by director Tito Varas. From start to finish, this project was great fun. Enjoy!
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. (more…)
3D Street Painting as Interactive Marketing in the UK
Check out my latest: Just created - a 3D street painting for LYNX ‘Attraction Chaos’ in the UK. Aiming to ‘unleash the chaos’, this chalk art showed up on the streets of Birmingham. Locals at Victoria Square are having a blast interacting with the chaotic image and getting their pics clicked!
Check out this quick stop motion of the process:
‘Attraction frenzy has started to seep into the UK consciousness as rumours surrounding a new Lynx fragrance have been spreading like wildfire. Speculation has (more…)
Invited to create a showstopper 3d street painting at the Macon, Georgia ‘Cherry Blossom Festival‘, sponsored by GatewayMacon, I called up my good pal Shayrn Namnath to join in the fun and off to the glorious South we went.
Check out the amazing time lapse that was created on the making of this image!
3D Street Art Makes a Heartfelt Mark on India
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 (more…)
