The art of street painting began in 16th Century Italy. This tradition returned in the 1970’s and was later introduced to Santa Barbara, California by 3D anamorphic artist, Kurt Wenner. Street Art, including murals and pavement art, has become popular across the United States with Street Painting Festivals as far north as Victoria, Canada and to the east at the International Street Painting Festival in Sarasota, Florida.
In July and August, watch award winning street painters Maribeth McFaul, Cyndi Kostylo, Ly Mai, Lori Antoinette, Lysa Ashley and Willie Zin in the process of creating amazing works of art on the pavement at Art-A-Fair! Featured artist Cecelia Linayao will be creating a fabulous 3D mural inside the Art-A-Fair grounds for all to enjoy. Discover all the excitement at Art-A-Fair.
