Meet the Artists

Chalk is where Art meets Sport! 

To be a world class pavement artist you have to have strength, skill, stamina.  It’s a test of endurance and the most physical fine art you’ll find on the planet.

Our team of artists are limbering up for Chalk Urban Art Festival.  You’ll be able to see them in action from 19 – 26 October at Customs House, Sydney. All artists are donating their time to this project.  Come and support them on site!

Meet our team of elite artists:

Our lead Artists are collaborating on the design.  Leon Keer and Jenny McCracken have travelled all over the world headlining festivals and producing artworks for major corporations.  The two have worked side by side in Holland and the USA, this is their first collaboration.
