The finished 3-D sidewalk mural in Pontiac May 14, 2012

Posted by Ron Warnick in Art, Events, Museums.

During the Illinois Route 66 Red Carpet Corridor Festival in Pontiac, airbrush artist Tang Dongbai spent the weekend painting a three-dimensional sidewalk mural downtown.

Here’s the finished product:

He finished the mural last Monday, but the artwork was barricaded for two more days until the paint cured.

I believe one of the fish in the painting is Bruce, the great white shark seen the Pixar film “Finding Nemo.”

The mural is just outside the International Walldog Mural & Sign Art Museum. The 3-D effect occurs when looking south toward the Pontiac Oakland Automobile Museum and Resource Center. And Pontiac boasts plenty of standard wall murals as well.
