While the Henry Lawson Festival is well known for its colourful parade and celebration of Henry Lawson and poetry in general, it is also the perfect time to take in some of the finest examples of art and photography from around the Weddin Shire and surrounding regions. This year Grenfell is lucky enough to play host to 3D artist Anton Pulvirenti, and locals and visitors alike will be able to view stunning examples of his work across the June long weekend.
Anton has been invited to showcase his talent of creating 3D chalk street art illusions and he will keep this years theme, 'Ode to Winter', in mind and incorporate this throughout his work. A Sydney-sider, Anton has many years of experience within creative arts and he has an impressive range of skills including drawing, painting, murals, live art, cartoons and 3D illusions. Anton said that he began his creative path in life at a young age and has kept evolving over the years. His work has taken him to countries like Italy, South Korea and the US where he has taught, taken part in workshops and represented Australia in prestigious art festivals.
His 3D illusions are stunningly spectacular, with their life-like elements and mind blowing designs. During his time in Grenfell, Anton will produce 3D chalk art works and provide visitors the opportunity to take photos of his work. He will also be conducting workshops exploring the ways he comes up with his designs and providing guests insights into each piece he creates.
