Street painter (and Blog Now on streetpainting.tv's co-founder) Anthony Cappetto created this cool 3D street painting called 'Waterfall' at Artisphere International Arts Festival in South Carolina last weekend.
Anthony started his 3D piece by drawing his designed sketch on the pavement with white chalk ... drawing the detailed sketch took most of the first day.
Anthony then spent the next two days filling in color as the crowds watched the grey concrete give way to a bright and refreshing waterfall.
Since it was a very hot weekend, and the Reedy river with its own waterfalls was nearby, Anthony thought this design would go over well with the crowd... Which it did!
Anthony said "People really enjoyed seeing the 3D street painting, especially when looking through the camera at the proper view point where the 3D really popped out. I received so many positive comments from adults and children alike about the street painting. I really enjoyed working on this piece - and was glad that the weekend was rain-free too!" Anthony posing with his finished 3D street painting 'Waterfall' measuring 10' x 14', which took three days to complete. As a note, the branch in the foreground is a nod to accomplished 3D street painter Rod Tryon, who is internationally known for his realistic, nature themed street paintings.

Street painter Michael Macaulay has been busy and here is another quick street painting he did a few days ago. Check out the piece he created in just over 60 minutes!
Michael tells us: “The ‘Snake Chasing His Tail’ street painting was completed within a 4' x 4' space and took a little over an hour to complete. The Main Street Stroll is an event that takes place on the first Thursday of each month between May and September. Between and , over 50 artists set up shop and display everything from paintings to hand-made jewelry. Live music can be heard up and down Main Street in East Greenwich as hundreds of people stroll through town looking for treasures and trying food and treats from some of the local restaurants. It is a great event for people to get out on a Thursday evening a walk around the quaint, New England Town of East Greenwich.
During the event, some artists paint or draw as people pass by. This year I decided to do that as well. Only I did not paint on canvas or draw on paper. I performed my art on the sidewalk for all to enjoy. I did my first Main Street Stroll street painting and it was very rewarding. People loved to see something different from the ordinary. Kids absolutely loved it! Some little ones even wanted to get down the ground and chalk it up as well. The event was a success and I will be street painting at future Strolls as well.”
MM: "The "Chalk on the Walk" street painting competition was just a part of all the happenings at the 27th Annual May Fair in Harvard Square. Harvard Square was bustling with a diverse crowd of a couple hundred thousand people as they had the opportunity to experience great live music, a variety of food, balloon rides, art, jewelry, and everything else that was on display. Church Street in Cambridge, MA, came alive with vibrant colors as about 100 artists created a variety of different street paintings on the pavement. The street paintings were a tremendous hit with the passersby."
"I chose to do an 8'x10' street painting that would be popular and fun for both old and young while using the anamorphic style. It took me about five hours to complete the piece. Children as young as 3 years old knew exactly who the four penguins were, their names (Kowalski, Skipper, Private, Rico) and what movie they were from (Madagascar). In the movie, the penguins attempt to break out of the zoo by digging themselves a tunnel. They tunnel up to the surface to tell the other animals that they are going to Antarctica. It is a hilarious scene in the movie that I wished to capture right there on Church Street in Cambridge. The scene lent itself to the anamorphic 3D style perfectly. People loved it! It was a real rewarding day. I even came away with a prize from the competition!"

Street painter Shawn McCann recently completed a street painting for 'Art in Bloom' at the Minneapolis Institute of Art or MIA. He created a 'Koi Pond' for their Preview Party fundraiser. Shawn had just 8 hours to work on his 10' by 13' street painting and passerbys checked out the progress as the dull grey concrete changed into a bright and refreshing Koi Pond. It was definitely a lot to get done in such a short time frame, but Shawn pulled it off and did a great job. And the fundraiser guests had a great time scouting for the koi!
