Chalkmaster Dave

Something different as busking goes, this is the work of one of the featured performers of the event, Chalkmaster Dave, a street artist who specializes in rendering three dimensional work. He can be found on Facebook.


In this case, the dragon in the first shot takes a three dimensional look when one photographs it from a second angle.

  6. That's very nice work. It's a pity there's a shadow over your second photo.

  8. LOVE Chalk art. It is really trending now. Most health food stores have chalk artists, coffee shops, etc. Then other places, like university campuses, consider it vandalism!

  16. @Cloudia: thank you!

    @Orvokki: definitely.

    @Gunn: he did beautiful work with this.

    @Andy: he certainly does.

    @Revrunner: I was lucky to get the shots in. The last shot here was actually my last shot of the festival- my camera batteries were rebelling and demanding to be recharged.

    @Nancy: he has great skill at this.

    @Marianne: they certainly do look real.

    @Marleen: it's an entirely different kind of busker work, but really works well in a festival.

    @EG: he definitely is.

    @Parsnip: quite so!

    @Jan: I took the second shot at a different point in the weekend. I thought it worked only to serve to show the difference an angle in the shot can make. The third shot was late in the afternoon on Monday, so the sun was at a different place.

    @Birdman: no, they only lasted as long as the weekend; the chalk would have been washed away with the first rain.

  17. @Janis: we don't have a lot of it here- this is the only instance I can think of in terms of chalk art during a given year, but one will often see chalk on sidewalks in terms of children's games.

    @Blogoratti: thanks for stopping by!

    @VP: it certainly is.

    @Red: he really did well with his choices.

    @Sharon: indeed.

    @Norma: he is!

    @Whisk: quite so.

    @RedPat: indeed. I'm sure he'll turn up in your area.

    @Tomas: definitely.

    @Geoff: it's a good name to go by!

    @Tex: oh, yes.

    @Denise: yes he is.

    @Grace: it's rare here, but I've seen it in previous festivals- quite likely he's been up here regularly.

  18. Love. Wish I had something like this to photograph...

  19. Amazing stuff. I guess when you've got this much talent it isn't so painful to see your work washed away in the rain.

  20. I love it when the have the chalk art contest here during the Weed Show. Some are so talented.

  21. Creativity is such a wonderful thing!

  22. These chalk artists are truly phenomenal.
    I couldn't resist! I drove into town today from the cottage to use wifi to check email, FB, and my photo blog. Guess I cannot exist without technology; a bit disappointed in myself.

  23. I've always been fascinated by people who can do this. And it always brought to mind how easily the eye is fooled...which means, in most cases, that eye-witness testimony isn't worth a fart in a thunderstorm.

  24. This is really beautiful and impressive street art...sad that it will not last too long.

  25. He does good work. It does look three dimensional.
