A Modern Madonnara
Street Painting originated in the Renaissance, when artists would paint images of the Madonna outside of cathedrals. The term given to these artists- "madonnari"-is still used today by Street Artists. Modern madonnara Erika Lalita Thurkins is a Pittsburgh-area professional portraitist and national award-winning chalk artist who creates dynamic street art for regional and national festivals, businesses, and events.
