Inspiring Bar Chalk Art From Around the World

At the bar, chalkboards provide the efficiency of being able to communicate the weekly specials on a quick and easy sign. The ease of wiping it off and the temporariness of the information makes it the perfect medium to share information at the watering hole. And then, there are some pieces of chalk art that are truly art, and their ephemeral quality makes them a tragedy to erase and a treasure to keep.

All around the world, from New York to Los Angeles, from the Netherlands to Russia, artists are picking up chalk and creating stunning imagery for bars. The colors, the font, the details are all so striking, coupled with the knowledge that – like a great cocktail or beer – the enjoyment of these visual achievements is only for the present. Here are some of our favorites.
