From March 9-12, internationally recognized 3D chalk/street artist Tracy Lee Stum recreated one of the most breathtaking scenes from Ang Lee’s Oscar-winning film, “Life of Pi.” According to a March 13 report from Cinema Blend, Stum has been creating temporary street art for many years, but, for this piece, she was “commissioned” by the “Life of Pi” crew to raise awareness of the film’s Blu-ray release on March 12.
The drawing is on display at L.A. Live in downtown Los Angeles until Saturday, March 16. For those who don’t live in the area, check out the video on the left side of this column – showing Stum creating the painting in time lapse, with the final shot being the completed work.
“Just like the film, my 3D chalk art helps you feel like you’re part of the scene – makes you feel like you’re really there,” Stum says in the video.
“Life of Pi” won four Academy Awards at this year’s ceremony, including Best Director (Ang Lee) and Best Visual Effects. It is now available to rent or own on Blu-ray and DVD.
