3D Cel­e­bra­tions

Southasia - - BRIEFINGS -

Kolkata wit­nessed a unique cel­e­bra­tion of Durga Puja this year as an in­ter­na­tional street painter, Tracy Lee Stum was in­vited to help the lo­cal peo­ple paint a 3D project in the city. The theme was ti­tled Tilottama which sig­ni­fies both God­dess Durga and Kolkata.

Dif­fer­ent forms of art were blended to de­pict the city and its tran­si­tion over the years. The 3D paint­ing is spread on a gi­ant ply­wood can­vas of 25 feet by 20 feet on the floor. Tracy worked for over 12 hours a day and fin­ished the paint­ing in five and a half days. She was as­sisted by four lo­cal artists. As against the nor­mal prac­tice of us­ing chalk pas­tels for street art, acrylic paint has been used in the 3D street paint­ings.
