World Street Painting is a festival where art is made live in front of you on the street. It focuses on the making process and the 3D artwork. Since 2014 Foundation World Street Painting organizes an annual festival in Arnhem and other cities around the world. Street Painting is an effective way to communicate a theme or art in the city to a wide audience in an accessible way. In 3D Street Painting, audiences can take a seat and be part of the illusion. Photography of people in different poses in the artworks provide interaction with the art form.
