Why Chalk?Why choose Street Painting as a means to market your product or event?
Street Painting, Chalk Art, Asphalt Art are forms of performance art, called by many names, but always fascinating and fun for everyone!
This art form can be traced back as far as 16th century Italy where artists would travel the festival circuit with other performers looking to make a few dollars in tip money or possibly receive a commissioned job to paint. In the 1970's this artistic medium was revived at festivals to celebrate its history and has emerged into commercial art ranging from advertising products to reproducing or creating unique artistic pieces at events.
With Street Painting's current popularity on the Internet, Social Media, and Television Commercials, it is drawing lots of attention. Your image is brought to life right before the viewer's eyes. This creates so much excitement most people stop and take photos instantly advertising your product or event.
Presenting a Street Painting image in Third Dimension (3D), can allow the viewer to become part of the piece by standing in a marked location and positioning themselves to appear as part of the work when a photograph is taken.
"When selecting a subject, I try to think from the perspective of my audience. I like to choose something to lure them into my story."
