Street Artist in Action
This is the kind of street art I thought only Bert from Mary Poppins does. But during a trip to Toronto I discovered that there are still a few dedicated artists who choose chalk and side walk to create their masterpieces. As much as I enjoyed watching the artist work, I enjoyed watching the reactions of other people even more. Businessmen in suits paused their cell phone conversations to take a look. Kids pulled their parents across the street to see. It seemed that no matter what type of rush they were in, everyone wanted a minute to the watch the transformation of a regular old piece of pavement into a work of art.
Amazing…it saddens me that one rain takes it all away.
I agree – it’s incredible to think how much work he puts into each drawing even knowing how temporary each one is.
The joy truly is in the creating, I guess.
