VietNamNet Bridge - Internationally recognized American street painter, Tracy Lee Stum, has completed a 3D painting called Snow Lotus, which is open to public on June 16-17 at Youth Cultural House, 4 Pham Ngoc Thach, District 1, Ho Chi Minh City.
Arrived in Vietnam on June 13, Tracy immediately spent four days working on the painting, whose canvas is the ground of the Youth Cultural House.
“3D paintings require the artist to be meticulous, taking care of small details and calculating precisely, to bring the best effects to viewers,” she said.
Tracy said there is always a best position to stand and take pictures of a 3D painting. However, sometimes it is the visitors who discover new angels to take photos which show best the 3D effects.
“I love street painting as it is only kept for a short time. This may sound awkward as artists love to keep their works for a long time. But to me, I appreciate the process more than result,” she said.
Born in Chambersburg, Pennsylvania, Tracy privately as a child and completed a 4 year Bachelor’s degree program at Tyler School of Art in Philadelphia. She continued her studies in naturalism at the Florence Academy of Art in Italy.
Tracy has participated as an invited featured artist in many festivals and events in the US, Canada, Japan, Korea, China where her paintings have won numerous awards accolades.
Currently, she holds a Guinness World Record set in 2006for the largest street painting by an individual. 3D paintings by Tracy:
