Chor Boogie

After my small section of Chalk Artist ToMo, I wanted to briefly look at the work of Chor Boogie. A San Francisco based graffiti artist. You can check out his website at . While he’s not a chalk artist, I meet Chor Boogie at the Sarasota Chalk Festival in 2011,see Chor was participating in the going vertical section as a graffiti artist. His energy and enthusiasm was amazing. He work a number of large works though-out the festival and would work all day and night. The standard of graffiti at the festival was incredible and Chor certainly help maintain this standard. I have some photos of his work here, from the festival. To see more check out his website, you wont be disappointed.

I haven’t done in Chalk work a recently, as I have been too busy working on publishing work. I thought it might be interesting to suggest some other chalk artists for you to look at. I thought I would start with an amazing artist who I meet in Florida last year.

It’s Tomoteru Saito, or ToMo. His websaite is and he can be found on facebook at .

I’ve taken the following information about ToMo from his website.

Born in Osaka, Japan.
Mostly working on the streets in Europe.

Formerly, Tomo worked as an architect in Tokyo.
Tomo has been awarded top prizes at the International Street Painting Festival in Grazie di Curtatone, Italy, including 1st place among Maestri Madonnari (master street painters) in 2000 and 2001.
Tomo participates in street painting festivals throughout Europe, the U.S., Mexico, Hong Kong and Japan.

I have also included some images of ToMos work from the 2011 Sarasota Chalk Festival in Florida.

I thought I would start with Tomo as he is simply amazing. Not only does he create masterpieces in chalk he can also speech 3 languages (that I know of). His work is stunning, you can see from the images that are attached that he has a great command of light and colour in his work.

I just hope that if you like ToMos work you will go and look at his website. If you are lucky enough to see ToMo drawing on the street, you stop and watch him work.
