Every Sunday or Monday night two rogue college students sneak into a vacant classroom, at the Columbus College of Art and Design, and create a masterpiece using nothing but their talent and ordinary chalk. The anonymous duo, who go by the name Dangerdust, leave behind nothing but rearranged furniture, chalk dust and inspirational messages.
By all accounts they are both seniors in Advertising & Graphic Design, and working toward graduating and entering the real world, yet they remain committed to creating their weekly chalk art extravaganza.
They draw on inspirational quotes by the likes of:Banksy, Ellen Lupton, Claude Debussy, Nicole Jacek, Tavi Gevinson, J.M. Barrie, Stefan Sagmeister, Bill Cosby, Jessica Hirsche, and Nelson Mandela and many more and illustrate them in unique and beautiful ways.
The depth they create with only standard chalk is amazing.
Masquerading as Dangerdust these two talented individuals have Twitter, Instagram and Behance accounts. As yet they have not revealed their true identities. Perhaps they will start an anonymous branding agency or continue on as urban artists like Banksy. I do hope that they inspire other people to tap into their creative potential! Keep it up!
