Look Who’s Chalking: A bunch of Incredible Chalk Artists at Victoria’s Chalk Festival

Here at the Victoria International Chalk Art Festival, all around us, everywhere we look, there is more extraordinary, phenomenal chalk artwork, and friendly, passionate, and dedicated chalk artists getting down and dirty on Government Street (which is one of the main streets of downtown Victoria)!! Most of the artists have been working hard since the wee hours of this morning, but despite having sore hands and knees (at least for those of us who didn’t bring kneepads!) everyone seems quite chipper, cheerful and enthusiastic to be a part of this wonderful festival and share their art with the public.

Here are some photos of a few of our neighbouring artists, and the exceptional artwork they are chalking out all around us!
