POTD: Tracy Lee Stum – Madonnari


A madonnari, or street artist, is someone who makes pictures of the Madonna from Christian art. These images were the original style of drawing for street painters, thus the title. An artist can be referred to as a madonnaro or madonnara.

This style of painting is what makes Tracy Lee Stum’s peers, and pedestrians passing by, consider her one of the most talented painters today.

She creates modern-day masterpieces using different coloured chalk on sidewalks in an very realising 3-dimensional way.

She currently holds a Guinness World Record for the largest street painting by an individual, which was set in 2006 for the DVD release of ‘The Da Vinci Code’.

Below is a small sample of her work – visit her website for more info and photos.
