Gamma Acosta - Street Artist. Longmont's own Gamma Acosta will be back again for the May Walk. The world has become his painting surface. He has a way with a spray can that took him beyond the hardened parameters of street writing.
Today, he's working all the time: creating murals inside and out for businesses across the Front Range and even showing off his talents at Art Basel Miami and other out-of-state venues.
Niki Blue - Also featuring full body painting demo by local artist Niki Blue. A Colorado artist, she uses the full body as her canvas.
Her richly detailed painting is amazing to watch as she transforms people's bodies into extraordinary and whimsical characters.
