Chalk Day at Five Dock – Day 3

May 30, 2015

I arrived at the Five Dock lane-way with great enthusiasm, laid down my chalking gear and began adding to the previous days work, only bits were worn from the very busy foot traffic. I was greeted by many return visitors who have watched my progress over the last days, again they were enamored with the art as it transformed the dull pavement into my daily diary of chalk. I knew the time was limited so I concentrated on improving the form and the design I had begun with.

I was engaged in numerous conversations with many that passed by, asking about today’s event, all while enjoying the band and singer “Lolo” that Canada Bay Council also hired for the days event. Angela Pasqua also had an art installation near the Post Office where the band played, while across the road were the council members busily engaging the public about the beautification exhibit for Five Dock. I would say a very exciting day for the residence of Five Dock, with a free sausage sizzle and coffee for all.

Such a great vibe from all the residence, I felt I was welcomed with great enthusiasm, I definitely would be happy to come any time to create any artworks at five Dock in the future. Many more wonderful stories about these last few days than I could ever hope to fit in this blog, Regards Arto.

Rhodes Chalk Art Day 2

February 10, 2013

I was very keen to start my other design for the Sunday session, I was ready for the boiling tar and the beating sun. I finally defeated the elements by the afternoon and had plenty of people, children, bike-riders, passers-bys and residence enjoying the chalk art, I would say a great day for all, even the Deputy Mayor Cr Pauline Tyrrell came and had a visit.  A big thank you to Stephanie for organizing the whole event, also a thank you for all the new fans that followed my progress in the last two days.

Here are a few shots of the new snake, this guy had teeth…Regards Arto
