Master Street Painter at work
While I was at the National Museum of Singapore, I had the privilege to see Kurt Wenner, a Master Street Painter, at work.
In conjunction with the National Museum's Opening Festival, Kurt Wenner has been invited "to create an original anamorphic drawing, live, at the National Museum."
It was an interesting experience to see an artist at work. Having taken art lessons in the past myself, I must say that Kurt Wenner has very good technique. I love the way he handled the pastels so proficiently. It reminded me to consider taking some time to return to sketching. I haven't been sketching for quite a long time, but I must say that sketching is very therapeutic.
Kurt Wenner has a website: http://www.kurtwenner.com/
While seeing him in action, I secretly wish that one day I can become wealthy enough to commission him to do some artworks for me.
Meantime, he will be at the National Museum of Singapore till 19 Dec 2006, so do check out. Details can be found here.
