Chalk Artist at Arts al Fresco

Tuesday, August 5, 2014

World-renowned chalk artist Gabrielle Abbott will be working her magic in Shoreline on Thursday, August 7th. In conjunction with Piano Time and Arts al Fresco, Abbott will be chalk painting a large 3-dimensional music-themed piece along the Interurban Trail in Shoreline’s Town Center area. She’ll be there working all day, finishing up during the Arts al Fresco event from 6:00-8:00pm. 

Gabrielle Abbott is a “La Madonnara,” an internationally exhibited muralist, street painter and fine artist. Since 2009, she has participated in many of the largest chalk art festivals and competitions around the world from Florence, to The Hague to Seattle.

Born in Seattle in 1986, Abbott moved to Italy at the age of 20 to study painting at The Florence Academy of Fine Art. Shortly after, she joined the Florentine Madonnaro Guild, (a professional affiliation of street painters) and within a few years she was traveling throughout Europe and America creating street paintings, murals and commissioned canvases.

In 2014, Gabrielle completed a Masters in Fine Arts from University of the Arts, London and in addition to being a madonnara, creates fine art such as films, artist books, installations, drawings and paintings.
