Clifton “Clif” Gold is a chalk artist based in San Jose, California. He creates whimsical line-and-pattern illustrations at festivals and events across the country. Clif’s murals dazzle audiences using a unique process. Curvy lines and playful patterns come to life with glowing light and color throughout the event as if a polaroid was developing in front of the audience’s eyes.
Clif is a color-blind artist and makes his own “recycled” pastels into a color system for his art. His work has been featured in Italian Street Painting Marin’s Madonnari Collection. He has also won “Best in Chalk of Fame” at the Pasadena Chalk Festival and “Best Use of Color” at the Autism Hwy Chalk Festival.
