Painting shows

EriK Black will create a unique live painting show for your event, creating a traditional painting in record time in front of your guests.

A tailor-made portrait in live painting

EriK BLACK performs in France and all over the world. Each show is unique, personalised and adapted to each venue.

A memorable event

Live painting is an animation that will leave a memorable impression on your audience. Watching a portrait or a new product take shape before your eyes thanks to Erik Black’s nimble brushstrokes is a magical sight indeed.

A personalised picture

For your painting show, you can choose the format of the canvas, the colours of the paint or add options to suit your event. By default, the artist works on a 150 x 170 cm canvas with white paint on a black frame for a speed painting performance.

Painting to suit your event

EriK Black creates portraits as well as many other works to suit all your evenings. Imagine, for example, your new product being unveiled in front of your associates in a breathtaking speed painting performance!
