The Art Of Three-Dimensional Painting 

3D street art is a type of street art that uses optical illusions to create a vision of a third dimension. Using various materials such as chalk, paint, and spray paint, 3D street art is often used to create public art installations, murals, and graffiti.

One of the most famous examples of 3D street art is the anamorphic sidewalk art created by painting a mural on the ground or a wall that can only be seen clearly from a specific angle. This type of 3D street art often uses optical illusions to create depth and movement.

The Incredible Tracy Lee Stum

One of the pioneers of 3D street art is Tract Lee Stum, who now has a presence in Puerto Vallarta at the TiLT Museum. 

Tracy Lee Stum is an American street artist known for her large-scale, 3D street art and chalk drawings. Tracy Lee Stum was born in the United States and began her street art career in the late 1990s. By 2006, she began creating large-scale, 3D street art installations and held the Guinness World Record for the Largest Chalk Painting by an individual after drawing a 10-meter by 5-meter recreation of Leonardo Da Vinci’s The Last Supper.

The TiLT Museum

For visitors and residents alike, the TiLT Museum is a must-see of Puerto Vallarta things to do. Located on Calle Pino Suárez, int 3, just off Basilio Badillo, Zona Romantico, the TiLT Museum allows visitors a unique opportunity to interact with the artworks, take photos and share them with friends and family. 

Having attended the Madonnari Festival in 2022, the TiLT Museum hopes to be present again this year when the celebration of street art returns to Puerto Vallarta. The tradition of street painting began in 16th century Italy with artists recreating illustrations of the Madonna onto the pavement. They became known as I Madonnari.
