Zach is a chalk artist living in Atlanta, GA who was first introduced to chalking through his wife, Jessi Queen, at the 2011 SCAD Sidewalk Arts Festival. Zach co-founded the Georgia Chalk Artists Guild with Jessi Queen and Katie Bush in 2014. The organization has since grown to over 40 members and partners with festivals throughout Georgia to bring chalk art to various corners of the state. He’s passionate about engaging festival patrons and including them in the process; he created the Pop-Up chalk festival to help explore ways of bringing chalk to communities. In 2015, Zach and Jessi shared a chalk piece at the Gwinnett Arts Fest and won First Place and People’s Choice Award. Later that year Zach chalked solo for the first time at the Sarasota International Chalk Festival. In 2016, he participated in the Lake Worth Street Painting Festival and developed his own method for chalking Lichtenstein’s famous ben-day dots. He has traveled to festivals across the south east including GA, FL, KY, MN, TN, TX. In 2016, he and his wife Jessi participated in street art festivals in Italy and Germany.
