The Art Corner!

(how artists create one day masterpieces)

Florence is art, art is everywhere...and of course you can see street artists everywhere in downtown. Very close to the Straw Market (also called the Wild Boar Market) where you can see street artists at work, Three spaces where every day you can see street atists reproducing famous paintings with chalk. Unfortunatly they only last one day because they are washed away every night to let space to other artists, other paintings, other stories...

When I pass near to this artist corner I always stop to see what these artists are drawing, theis chalks box, their colours. And no later than one month ago I found this girl reproducing Jan Vermeer's "The girl with a Pearl Earring". Living colours, a perfect reproduction...I wish I was an artist!
