January saw Zest Artist Rudy Kistler head off to the home of ‘The Big Golden Guitar’ to celebrate Tamworth Country Music Festival 2015.Β He spent a week entertaining festival goers, producing four 3D street paintings.
Each day he would work in a different location around the festival, creating a chalky treasure hunt.Β On day four, Rudy worked on the barrel andΒ rounded out the week with the very family friendly bug scene.
Rudy’s stand out piece was a spectacular guitar,Β it took two days to complete and attracted media attention.
βI don’t think I’ve ever had so many people thank me for being at a festival before. Β Most people say “clever, “amazing”, “you’re very good”, but the people at Tamworth, mostly all locals, made a point to thank me.Β I think they were excited to see a different type of art.β
Rudyβs adventures are only just beginning. Heβll be travelling to Far North Queensland, Outback NSW and Shoalhaven creating more 3D street paintings and running youth workshops over the coming months.
βI really enjoy the youth workshops. Thereβs no pretensions with the kids, they are keen to see how 3D chalk art works and are eager to have a go.β
