About the Art of 3D on the Streets
Street painting in its origin is a very old style of street art. Pigments, mostly applied with pastels or with a brush are the painting tool, with which the illusion is created. For this reason the results on the streets are not long-lasting and they usually get neutralized with the next rain.
Street painters has been around for a very long time. They can often be seen in the pedestrian streets of the cities or in public places which are based on a corresponding ground. For their art they demand a small donation from the people passing by. Over time a global street painting community developed that flew throughout the world going out from California. The members consider themselves as "service providers on behalf of Gaya" and made it their business to set coloured examples in downtown areas in order to reach the highest possible number of people. At festivals, the community unites and celebrates its art.
