Book Description

In cities throughout the world you will find pavements decorated with intriguing temporary artworks. This art form originated in Italy during the 16th century, where vagabond artists painted religious pictures directly on the paved public squares, using chalk and charcoal. Packed with vibrant examples from leading international street painters, Sidewalk Canvas includes magical 3D illusions, faithful renderings of, and amusing twists on the old masters, as well as original compositions - which are literally mind-blowing. It also includes insights into how street paintings are executed, where to find them, and practical, step-by-step advice on how to create them.

Includes work from leading practitioners in the art, creating a permanent gallery of great works for those who love street painting
Provides inspirational and practical advice for aspiring artists, art educators, event organisers, and fans of street painting
