Rock Chalk Ball Featured Artist: Tina Blanck
Tina Blanck is a Kansas City artist who specializes in a unique painting technique she calls “mosaic painting.”
Her large paintings have the look and feel of mosaic but are created entirely with paint. After preparing the boar with a layer of drywall mud for texture, Tina sketches the design and then fills in the painting with geometric shapes of stamped paint, adding depth and movement with patterns in the background.
Tina created this 4 foot square Jayhawk painting to commemorate KU’s sesquicentennial celebration.
Visit Tina’s website at www.tinablanck.com to learn more about her work.
In keeping with the Alumni Association’s mission to strengthen KU, proceeds from the 2014 Rock Chalk Ball will be used to enhance and expand outstanding alumni programs that unite Jayhawks, provide networking opportunities, and engage alumni in student recruitment and other advocacy on behalf of KU.
