Liza Fishbone and Chelsea Ritter-Soronen – Austin, Texas

Liza Fishbone and Chelsea Ritter-Soronen join forces as CHALK R!OT, a globe-trotting artist team on a mission to spread color worldwide. Liza, based in Austin, TX, creates fantastical universes based on the fusion of places she's traveled, backpack-intimate, and her interactions on the road. Chelsea, based in Napa, CA, is inspired by big blank spaces and the potential that they hold to become a canvas for significant art pieces, and wanders the world searching for them. Her chalk art is influenced by traditional renaissance chalk art and modern anamorphic work. They both are passionate about creating interactive public art that uplifts and inspires passers-by.
