Sidewalk Art
  • Sidewalk Art dates back to the Renaissance
  • It was done to bring the great masterpieces to the common people
  • The Madonnari were the artists who created the works.
  • They often did works of the Madonna (Our Lady) or Virgin Mary
  • How did the Madonnari help people to see art?

The art is temporary

  • It wears away or is washed away by rain

They realize the work will go back to being a sidewalk

  • Many festivals take place over several days
  • Festivals today are held in many countries including ours

Works can take hours to create

  • There are many layers of chalk
  • The final layers are usually bright pastel which yields brilliant colors
the role of photography
The role of photography
  • Photographing the work preserves it long after the festival is over and the work has been walked on

How does photography help the process?

  • Why would gridding be a good way to work?
  • Photographing the work in process also provides a record of its creation
  • The artist usually has a reference which is gridded

  • Once gridded, they start with a drawing
  • Then they will fill in with cheaper pastels to fill in the “tooth” of the sidewalk.
  • Then they will layer on fine pastel colors
  • They blend with fingers, scrubbies or brushes

Rembrandt brand are the finest pastels.

  • Chalk artist Julian Beever creates a 3d drawing of a box of them

Anamorphic Drawings
  • Anamorphic Perspective was a technique first used by Renaissance artists to create the illusion of 3-d space on a flat ceiling.
  • The dome is painted, not real.

  • Artists like Kurt Wenner and Julian Beever create amazing Anamorphic Sidewalk Drawings

Why would these illusions contain someone falling in or climbing out?

  • What would be effective about such an image?
how do they work
How do they work?
  • An anamorphic drawing requires a working of knowledge of math
  • They must be viewed at the correct angle or they appear out of proportion

Beever sets up a camera that is at the right angle for the work to be viewed and checks it constantly as he works

Students spend an entire day creating artworks to a theme that they vote on.

The works last a few weeks.

We use hairspray between layers to seal them.
