24 Street Artists gathered to do their thing in Cambridge, Ontario.
They came from around the globe. 12 Graffiti Artists.
11 chalk artists
…and 1 cellograph artist.
White canvases were provided, as the historic city of Cambridge didn’t want artists to paint on the old stone walls.
I get that. Yet, there was plenty of parget wall to paint on. Hopefully, that will happen next year.
I luv that the Artists works were along the river. You all know how much I love reflected Graf!
It rained most of the first day, & was raining when I took the above shot.
On day 1, the rain washed away all of the Chalk Artists’ efforts. On day 2 they worked very hard to make up time that was lost to nature.
In future posts I will highlight the artists, & if available provide links to their websites, Instagram or blogs. KUDOS to all you wonderful artists!

All of the art is amazing! I can’t believe what they did with chalk and then having to redo it…YIPES!! Hats off to them!
I know! I’m so grateful. I only hope I can contain the happening to 4 or 5 more posts. It was one fab fest!!! ❤
So very colourful and what a shame about the rain. Glad you didn’t fall in the river while stepping back to get “that shot” dear Resa. lol. Big hug. Ralph xoxox ❤ #<
Well, there was always a chance I’d end up in the river. ❤ xoxo #< 😀
I’m glad you didn’t dear friend 🙂 ❤ #< xoxox
I love the doggie. the cougar and the kissing angels. It’s also great to see the artisits!
I have more artist pics coming up!
These are amazing! Such talent!
Agree! Also, there is something noble about painting your art where the public can see, enjoy and beyond. Yet, it’s outdoors & ephemeral.
As I scrolled you answered questions I wanted to ask… Thank You..
Like: Is the first image on canvas, or does it only appear that way?
And: The chalk pieces will last only as long as it doesn’t rain….. Yep!
As you’ve said, Resa; maybe next year they may be given some permanence … Still, it’s a good start! 🙂
And it was so much fun! xoxoxo 😀
AMAZING!!!!! Wow…how fabulous was THAT? Thank you Resa, for letting me see that wonderful artwork.
There’s more to come. I really need more posts to feature the artists and their work. I am working on it a bit every day. I took 700 pics over 2 days.
Stunning ! You are lucky to see them in action.Frida and the dog are my favourites.
I love the dog!!! Wait til you see more of the finished art & the chalk artists & their work! The organizers have told me there is another Festival next year. 😀
What a fest! WOW!!!!! 🙂 xxxxxxxx
Yeah! And they are doing it again next year. 😀 xxxxxxxxx
I feel sorry for those who lost their work on day one, it’s a wonderfully eclectic mix of art and artists. There needs to more of these events happening around the world.
What a great idea to have these fests worldwide. There are several in Canada. The one in Montreal will be for an entire month next year.
A month, that is impressive, you’ll be in seventh heaven! I will get to Sunnyside soon by the way my friend. I want to get that feeling for the idea we were talking about o so long ago (or so it seems).

More festival to come to come! ❤ & they are doing it again next summer!
totally Kewl 🙂 resa …..
It was the best time. Q! xoxo
Beautiful. Why are they painted on the fabrics?
I like to see the styles contrasted like that. Sath’s style is more like traditional painting and some of the others were very stylized and graphic or comic-book like. I love them all — the colors were outstanding. I can’t believe they were put on canvases and not made more permanent. They are too easy to deface or destroy that way. They would have to be brought inside to be protected, I would think.
