LOS ANGELES Khalil Mack Youth Jersey , June 15 (Xinhua) -- To those over 600 artists, nothing is more exciting than painting on the cement ground of the whole street block with chalk: they are creating their art pieces under foot with imagination and creativity.

More than 600 chalk artists from all over the country came to Pasadena, a city in California where the famous annual New Year Rose Parade takes place, to spend the weekend creating artworks in every imaginable style in the tradition of the Italian "madonnari" street painters.

This year's highlights include "Animation Alley," featuring animators and graphic designers; the new "Chalk of Fame," showcasing chalk versions of famous movie posters at the ArcLight movie theater; and a mural of Pasadena's hometown baseball legend Jackie Robinson by Tom Matousek, a local artist.

Chalk paintings won't last, and after the two-day festival, they will disappear. But chalk artists do not care. Two days are enough to show their talent and imagination.

In 2010, the chalk painting event in Pasadena was listed in the Guinness Book of World Records as the world's largest public art event of its kind, and this year it is 10 percent larger, according to the event organizer.

Also, the appeal of watching the chalk art taking shape on concrete crosses all boundaries of age and levels of sophistication. Last year, about 100,000 visitors attended the two-day event, and this year, more visitors are expected.

William Zin, who graduated from the California State University, Long Beach with an art degree, was working hard on his chalk painting "Going to the West" Saturday morning.

Zin said this is his fifth year here, adding that as an immigrant from China, he wants to show Americans the rich Chinese culture with his chalk.

"Visitors would always come to me and ask me what the painting tells, and I would tell them the story I learned when I was a child," Zin said.

Zin said the first year he was here, he painted a tiger; the second year, he painted Guan Yu, a Chinese ancient general in the period of the Three Kingdoms; the third time, he painted figures of Terracotta from the Qin Dynasty; last year, he presented figures of Beijing Opera.

"They are all images from China, and I am glad those images and figures are welcomed here," Zin said.

Although Zin has a degree in art, he is now working in an import and export company because he has to make a living first. "But art is still my hobby," Zin said.

Charles Chavez is a professional artist specialized in customized murals drawing or painting. He was working on his "Tea Party" painting Saturday morning.

The idea of "Tea Party" comes from Disneyland, Chavez told Xinhua. He said he loves painting on the wall or on the street. He has painted murals for local schools and businesses for many years.

Chaves said he has been here for 10 years. "I know the chalk paintings won't last long, but I love to show visitors the process of creating an art piece on the street cement ground," Chavez said.

Peggy Jordon and her daughter Tiffany Jordon are both chalk-painting lovers. They have been going to the annual event for the eighth year. This year, they were creating an art piece of "Do You".

"'Do You' means 'be yourself', do not let others distract you," Peggy Jordon explained.

As the mother and daughter were painting on the ground, a photographer approached them with a photo he took last year, which shows them painting a dog on the ground.
