The “Worlds First” that Shaun Hays, Chicago Chalk Champ, is confirmed to attempt at Art Prize Seven is going to be rediculous!
Shaun is known for diving headfirst into the fray with little more than an idea and executing near impossible feats of illusion using only chalk and whatever surface is available. (see “SUPERCHAMP” for some examples) *link missing, needs update*
This one will be yet another one we will be talking about for years to come: Shaun will be creating a masterpiece illusion created , of course, out of chalk. This time he will not be mearly drawing with chalk, but building the illusion with sticks of chalk that will act as individual pixels (like your television uses)! Yep! this is going to take alot of time and a huge amount of talent and patience. Shaun estimates four days of standing sticks of chalk together to create the pattern.
Everywhere I go, people are always asking: “where can I see some of your works or hear you speak? ”
Well, my art work is often temporary or performance based and often it is for private groups (not open for the public to attend). This makes it difficult or impossible for many to meet up with me on site. I am changing this somewhat in 2015-2016:
INTRODUCING: THE CHAMP LIVE EVENTS – OPEN TO THE PUBLIC
(I will do my best to update you here on this list)
2016 Schedule of Events:
Two festivals are currently in contract talks and I cannot wait to promote them!
