Dead Squirrel Girl video inspires artPosted: May 23, 2011 | |
Well, it’s chalk art, but still art nonetheless.
But not everyone drew flowers, butterflies and rainbows.
Artist Calvin Turnwall rendered a chalk drawing of a still photograph he captured online from a YouTube video of a little girl playing with a dead squirrel. Passers-by knew the one he was depicting. His prior works for the event included mummified cats, he said.
“I’m an artist; I like to shock people a little bit,” Turnwall said.
