Frequently Asked Questions:

What is Live Painting? What is the history behind it?

Live Painting is an improvisational performance in which a visual artist, usually accompanied by a DJ or live Music, over a short period of time, creates a painting in front of an audience. Unlike a traditional setting in which a painter works privately in an enclosed studio over an extended period of time and shares his or her  work in a gallery only after it is finished, in a Live Painting performance an artists lets the audience watch the painting process unfold from beginning to completion within a short period of time in a public setting.

One of the first well known recorded Live Painting events was done during the 1976 Summer Olympics by LeRoy Neiman. In 1990’s Live Painting began to evolve from the street and graffiti art scene. Today, Live Painting is a growing movement among visual artists around the world. With each artist bringing his own style each performance is unique, amusing and revolutionizing.
