ChalkTwins
Devon & Lexi
Artist | Professional | Traditional Art
United States
The Chalk Twins are identical twins who both have a passion for art. They have been drawing since they could hold a crayon. In May 2011, they graduated from Furman University, both with BAs in Studio Art (Devon with concentrations in Painting and Drawing and Lexi in Painting and Graphic Design). Furman gave them a wonderful well rounded liberal arts education and in 2009 they had the opportunity to study with the University of Georgia in Cortona, Italy.

Devon and Lexi started entering chalk art competitions in 2005 and have competed in places throughout the Southeast. Of the fourteen events they have entered they have been awarded Best in Show, Best in Category, first and second place honors in thirteen. Their chalk art projects range anywhere from 4 sq ft to 120 sq ft. They use highly pigmented soft pastel chalk that is completely biodegradable. Most outdoor chalk art will last a few hours to a few months depending on the weather.

COMMISSION/EVENT INFO:
Pricing depends on the complexity and size of the piece. Please contact the Chalk Twins if you require a quote on any project or event!

Interests

How long have you been on DeviantArt?

3 years. We started this account shortly after deciding to start our own business and become professional artists. Though we both have old accounts (8 years old for Devon and 6 years for Lexi) and we had both been stalking the website for years before getting an account.


What does your username mean?

Pretty obvious. We are identical twins and we use chalk!


Describe yourself in three words.

Passionate, hardworking nerds


Are you left or right handed?

Both! Devon is right handed and Lexi is left handed. We are what scientists call Mirror Twins.


What was your first deviation?

The Tiger by ChalkTwins
We made this piece almost exactly 10 years ago! Our first ever chalk drawing done together. 


What is your favourite type of art to create?

Traditional fanart-we especially enjoy making pieces with a lot of detail that are subtly nerdy. 


If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?

Devon: I would love to be able to master pottery (I only took one semester of it in college but I loved working with my hands and being able to craft useful items) and I've always been so jealous of people who have really lose styles but still somehow manage to capture so much detail (usually found in watercolorists and oil painters).

Lexi: I would love to master watercolor. You can do so much with the medium...it can be lose, extremely detailed, layered, vibrant or muted colors, etc. 


What was your first favourite?
''Grey''  Sketch by GazeUponTheSun
Still love the interesting composition of this sketch


What type of art do you tend to favourite the most?

Traditional FanArt, cosplays, and pieces with really interesting compositions.

Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist?

That is so hard because there are so many nice and talented people here! If we had to choose one though, I think it would be :iconloish:. Her art is a big part of why we joined DA-her work is so colorful, whimsical, and fun. It was and still is a big inspiration to us.


If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be?

We have been lucky enough to know a lot of our friends IRL on here, but we have also become friends with a number of people through this site (many of them in different countries) and we would love to meet them in person one day. 

How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?

The reason we love this site is because it really, truly feels like a community of artists. It amazes and humbles us everyday to know that people choose to follow our art journey and give us encouragement along the way. We don't think we would be where we are without that constant support of fellow artists. 

What are your preferred tools to create art?

Soft pastels!!

What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?

Devon: I feel like my creativity ebbs and flows and traveling, exploring, and getting out of my comfort zone help get me also out of creative ruts. Sometimes that means exploring a national park, going to a museum, or just browsing DA. :D

Lexi: No specific place really. For me it's more of a state of mind that I have to find in order to be creative. 

What is your favourite DeviantArt memory?

It's cliche we know, but getting both our DDs are highlights for us. We remember just browsing DA when all of a sudden we started getting an influx of messages. We distinctly remember how surreal it felt and bouncing up and down together in excitement.
