Every time around this year there is always talk about the latest and greatest technology or development that will captivate the public - or not.
Whether the talk comes from virtual spaces like Second Life, other competing sims, or 3D anything (video, graphics, TVs) there are ups and downs, but ultimately the best results will come together one hopes. At left is my avatar in SL, Chalkfan Streeter viewing some of our previously drawn street paintings by Art for After Hours while viewing this blog (left) and the blog 'Blog Now on streetpainting.tv' through my other company, Innovative Street Painting Group.
In our case, we are not only proponents of street painting art, a traditional art form with a history going back to the Renaissance era, but creators and supporters of the 3D street (chalk) art that you may have seen at an event, tradeshow, exhibition, or festival somewhere in the world. We are also strong proponents of respecting the tradition of street painting while looking to incorporate new tools and ways of looking at the future. Art always evolves, ideas to reach the public through the message of art and the times that surround it evolve too.
3D Street painting (chalk) art is an art form created with your hands, designed in your mind, and executed with experience that comes from understanding the art desired and the mechanics of how to take a 2D creation and transform it to be believable as a three dimensional image to your viewers.
Here we have two 3D street painting artists Shawn McCann (left) and Michael Macaulay (right) working on a recent 3D street painting completed last October. The team work that we had allowed us to create a Halloween themed street painting using traditional methods with the said mechanics to create a new illusion using traditional methods.
As much fun as we had creating this work, now is the time to raise the bar. We are looking for those creatives who see the same excitement in applying the latest and sharpest methods for using new technology in traditional 3D street painting to reach audiences and markets worldwide. We are working with those who can help us blend new technology into our 2011 works for our clientele and are always open to new partnerships set on bringing the biggest, most sophisticated, and conceptual blended 3D street painting (chalk) art to the most viewers, physically, virtually, online.
