6072544130 c033c8c210 b 585x391 The Fourth Annual Sarasota Chalk FestivalI remember as a kid I used to draw stuff on the sidewalks with chalk, eventually I grew out of it. However thanks to festivals such as Sarasota Chalk Festival, pavement art only gets better and better. It was more evident than ever on 4th annual Sarasota Chalk Festival which saw over 200,000 visitors. Artists from all over the world transformed Burns Square in downtown Sarasota into an outdoor museum gallery using chalk as their medium and the pavement as their canvas. One of the most popular works this year was the Terracotta Army inspired piece, created by artists Leon Keer, Ruben Poncia, Remko van Schaik and Peter Westerink. In reality, I am simply speechless looking at all this pavement art, the 3d effect is stunning. Check out Leon Keer’s Flickr page for more pictures…
