A brief history of Street painting traces back to the 16th century Italy where artists would use their chalk to transform pavement into a makeshift canvas. Street painting has since evolved from subject matter of Madonnas, to portraiture, pop art, 3D masterpieces, to everyday items. Street paintings festivals take place all over the world still today and continue to grow in popularity more each year.
