Sidewalk Chalk

From the web: Culture & History

David Zinn joyfully creates temporary creations in the here now.

David is a self-taught artist with a degree in Creative Writing and English Language from the Residential College of the University of Michigan, USA. He has been creating original artwork in and around Ann Arbor since 1987, serving all manner of commercial clients from small shops to major municipalities while simultaneously sneaking “pointless” art into the world at large.

David’s temporary street art is composed entirely of chalk, charcoal and found objects, and is always improvised on location. Most of these joyful drawings have appeared on sidewalks in Ann Arbor and elsewhere in Michigan, but some have surfaced as far away as subway platforms in Manhattan and construction debris in the Sonoran Desert. His most frequent characters are Sluggo, a bright green monster with stalk eyes and irreverent habits, and Philomena, a phlegmatic flying pig. As of 2013, there have been a lot of mice as well.
