Chris's first street chalk experience was Valencia, CA's Bella Via in 2003. He has since earned recognition throughout the United States chalk scene, both as a Featured Artist and winner of multiple festival awards. His favorite forms of art include illusionism and surreal paintings, but his portfolio also includes 3D images, portraits, landscapes, photorealism, and colorful cartoons.
Public interaction is Chris’
favorite aspect of street chalk art.It
allows him to share his passion, while also meeting the many wonderful people
that come out and support the arts.Chris finds the temporary nature of chalk art appealing; like a snapshot
in time.Something special created for
those people in attendance.While most
art is viewed in its final form, street art provides the opportunity for the
audience to see art as a work in progress.
It shouldn’t be hard to notice him, as there’s
usually more chalk on Chris than the street.
Chris' twelve year old daughter Kimberly is also quickly mastering the street
chalk art as well. You can see some of her work on Kimberly's page.
