Aussies Abroad – #BLVDQ8

Having returned recently from the USA a quick stop home and then this time we’re off to Kuwait to share our 3D street painting and chalk drawing skills! Nestled in the heart of Salmiya in the southeast of Kuwait City, with a rich demographic diversity, Boulevard is a contemporary and vibrant cultural precinct, a perfect place for us to showcase our street painting skills.

Zest’s Creative Producer Andi Mether worked with Boulevard’s marketing team to engage audiences with a fantastic display of 3D street painting.  The event was held 28th of November till 3rd of December and featured Zest Artists Jenny McCracken and Rudy Kistler.

The artists created three incredible 3D illusions, Jenny McCracken’s feature piece ‘1001 Nights’  and Rudy Kistler’s ‘Cracks in Kuwait’ and ‘Koala from Down Under’ had audiences lining up to pose for photos. University students also had the opportunity to learn new skills and gain invaluable experience while having fun with Jenny and Rudy.
