Artsy Fartsy

I have some lovely friends who are artists, so this weekend we checked out their chalk drawings at Via Arte. Via Arte is an Italian street "painting" festival and this was it's 10th anniversary here in Bako. Basically artists come down and they have all these squares taped off, one for each artist to draw on. It's in a parking lot so they are down on their hands and knees drawing with chalk for 2-3 days. Both original and non-original drawings, teens to adults, and professional to non-professional artists.

Pretty intense right? I think so. Here are some pictures from our little excursion. My friend's had a 6'x12' (I think) square - yikers!

When we got there it was basically done.

Peace out.

My friend's bf working on their piece.

Rows of the big drawings.

I thought this castle was pretty spiffy, ignore the odd angle. Reminded me of Care Bears!
