BHUBANESWAR: The road in front of the Bakul Children’s Library here will get a three-dimensional life. The road will get a makeover with bright colours in chalk when American artist Tracy Lee Stum will create street art during her visit to the Library on Monday.
Tracy, who holds a Guinness World Record for the largest chalk painting, will use chalk pastels and tempera paints to create an illusory two-dimensional image that will appear to be three-dimensional when viewed from a specific point.
“The street visual art will be created outside the Library on the theme of environment. Visitors can catch a glimpse of Tracy in action,” said Sujit Mohapatra, founder-secretary of the Bakul Foundation. She will also hold a day-long workshop for children and interact with them about street painting and other forms of art.
3D PAINTING CHARMS PURI: Meanwhile, Puri witnessed a colourful ‘jugalbandi’ on Sunday as Tracy created a 3D masterpiece near the beach. Tracy worked from Saturday morning to gift the people a wonderful 3D painting that the city had rarely witnessed.
Hundreds of people gathered at the beach near the Mayfair Hotel to witness the ‘jugalbandi’ of sand art by Sudarsan Pattnaik and chalk art by Tracy. Both the artists created dolphins and Olive Ridleys on an area of 3,000 sq ft.
The event was organised by the US Consulate General, Hyderabad, and the Tourism Department.
