Here, Olivia McLeod of Blackbird Art is recreating in chalk the painting “Jaroslava” by Alphonse Mucha.
This work won the “Best Reproduction of a Master’s Work” and “Peoples Choice” awards at the Denver Chalk Art Festival 2017. I used a little Lightroom trickery to correct the photo’s perspective.
Another great piece of work from the 2017 Denver Chalk Art Festival.
This one by Karl Horeis tied for third place.
Seen at Denver Chalk Art Festival 2017…
Seen at the 2015 Denver Chalk Art Festival, it’s another impressive piece of work by Dawn Wagner:
Another excellent piece of art from the 2013 Denver Chalk Art Festival:
It’s a chalk interpretation of “Steamnocchio” by Fabricio Moraes — his award-winning 3D CG steampunk adaptation of the Pinocchio story. Â Check out Fabricio’s other work, too — he does some great stuff!
The Denver Chalk Art Festival is always a colorful (if crowded) experience for photographers. Â This year, it happened to coincide with the Denver Comic Con — so it was fitting that the Rocky Mountain College of Art & DesignÂ (RMCAD) contributed this work based on cartoon / sci-fi characters:
One of the hallmarks of RMCAD art works is their use of reflectors to turn a curved artwork into something that is visually straight when seen from just the right angle. Â If you look carefully, you can see the bottom edge of their reflector in the top third of the above image.
In spite of fitful weather, we headed downtown yesterday for the 2012 Denver Chalk Art Festival. This was one of our favorites (reminds me of our kiddo’s response to a camera):
Normally the weather’s pretty cooperative by this time of year — it’s generally hot, but dry. This year, for some reason, we’ve had alternating hot & dry / cool & wet weather for the past few weeks. Saturday night, we got nailed by some fast-moving thunderstorms.
So most of the chalk artists lost Saturday’s work (in full or in part), and had to do major repairs on Sunday. Pretty impressive for a day’s work, I’d say…
