Stum holds the Guinness record for the world’s largest
chalk painting by an individual: a version of
Leonardo Da Vinci’s ‘Last Supper’
that was 35 feet long and 18 feet high.
This public art form can be traced back to 16th century Italy when traveling artists known as “Madonnari” chalked
Madonna and Child pictures on church and cathedral pavements for holy festivals.
She then continued her studies in naturalism at the
Florence Academy of Art in Italy.
A gregarious graffiti lover, Tracy began street painting
in 1998, and is considered by peers
as one of the finest street painters today.
Tracy has also had the privilege and honor to serve
as the US State Department's 2012 cultural ambassador.
In 2013 Tracy stepped into management as she
curated the first annual DO/AC 3D Chalk Festival in
Atlantic City, New Jersey, showcasing 14 renowned international 3D street art & chalk artists.
Ms. Stum has also toured Tajikistan and India creating
3D street paintings and teaching workshops
at distinguished universities and art colleges
to promote education, awareness,
and positive cross-cultural communication.
this is the foundation for her creation of her interactive
3D Museum... an experience like no other...
where people of all ages can step through the looking glass and revive their sense of wonder.
Tracy explaines: “Today, artists have a wide range of tools to achieve what’s called contemporary anamorphic art, a designed method or technology used to create the illusion of 3D on 2D surfaces. It’s a method of drawing founded on the geometry of perspective, often using photography or computer programs as tools to achieve the final chalk-and-paint illusion.”
With every stroke of brush or strike of chalk,
Tracy transforms the ordinary into the extraordinary.
Her journey from aspiring artist to award winning
master of her craft has culminated in the creation of an interactive 3D Museum that takes you into impossible and magical worlds that stretch the imagination.
