Cynthia Kostylo is a Chicago native who now resides in Lexington, Ky. She immerses herself into the art world as a muralist, digital illustrator and pastel artist. Cynthia has traveled extensively both in the US and internationally performing as a street painter. Rather than sticking with the “usual skin tones” Cynthia is known for using bold colors in her large portraits, celebrating human unity and diversity. Additionally, Cynthia has developed a unique form of street art called 360chalk. This layout gives the crowds optimum viewing, simultaneously, as they stroll around a 30’ diameter circle watching artists create their pieces. Cynthia and her team have performed 360chalk in Florida, Texas and California.
Cynthia's diverse talents have allowed her to create murals on city walls, performed chalk art for clients such as Harley Davidson and Sony Pictures, paint marker art for Western Union and now digital illustrations for 3 books including a science fiction graphic novel which is being made into a major motion picture and her own children's book!
