Chalk it up to art at a street painting festival

A colorful, interactive international street art festival marks the city’s 90th anniversary and kicks off an expected yearly tradition.

“The Festival of Street Painting is actually allowing the audience to see the artists in action,” says 3D sidewalk artist Anat Ronen in this video showing the creation of 3D chalk drawings commissioned in celebration of the 90th anniversary of Tel Aviv suburb Ramat Hasharon. “We see it in between art and performance art.”

Chalk artists, painters, environmental sculptors and musicians from Israel and Holland, Italy, the United States and Russia contributed their diverse talents to the inaugural festival, which took place in July.

Municipal spokesman Guy Kelner says he expects this to become an annual event.
