“Your ability to get the audience involved, laughing, and in awe of what you do is an Entertainment agents dream.  It would actually be enough if all you did was just paint … but you are so much more and that’s what makes you awesome.  You are reliable, enthusiastic, honest, hardworking, cheerful, dedicated, professional, witty, dynamic and super-talented.  I love the black cotton britches you work in, and it’s always such a pleasure to put you in display.”

“Firstly, a massive ‘Thank You’ for an awesome performance on Saturday night. All people were saying was “WOW”. Our clients are always dubious at the best of times to try something unseen or untested, but you certainly changed this client’s mind with your performance at our event. Your professionalism, willingness to work within the vision of the event, and your enthusiasm during the night was nothing short of wonderful. You truly delivered on what you promised.”

Brad Blaze's Biography

Amazing, phenomenal, awesome – are just a few words that clients have used to describe the impact that Brad Blaze has at an event.  Speed painter, world renowned artist and entertainer, Brad Blaze’s energy is infectious.  His showmanship on stage leaves audiences highly motivated.

 

Brad Blaze is a world-renowned Corporate Entertainment and Special Event Entertainer . He has combined his talents to offer corporate entertainment. Prepare yourself for something entirely different as the world’s fastest painter enthrals your audience with art, comedy and fire!

 

Recently named “Entertainer of the Year” at the prestigious Australian Event Awards, the highest accolade in entertainment in the corporate and special events industry, he has entertained around the world (Australia, Asia, USA, Middle East) with his one-of-a-kind shows. Corporate Event Magazine “Spice” have called him “The hottest entertainer for events!”

 

He has painted in under four minutes iconic people from his repertoire including Einstein to Elvis, Prime Ministers and CEO’s ‘live’ at events from around the world and even sporting celebrities ‘live’ at events (including Tiger Woods, Shane Warne, Nico Rosberg, Sir Ian Botham).  Last year his paintings raised over $500,000 for charity.

 

Who would have thought…. Brad spent the beginnings of his career working his ‘way up the corporate ladder’ of an international finance company.  On his way to and from work on the train he honed his skills quickly sketching other passengers without them knowing and over nine years reading every single ‘how to’ art based book ever published.

 

Although he has had a love for drawing since he was a child, it wasn’t until the year 2000, when he became a caricature artist working at events and having artwork published in magazines and newspapers that he found his calling.

 

He became highly skilled in caricature art, winning awards and being hired to travel throughout China for companies and Australia for special events.  What set him apart from other artists was his talent in drawing and capturing the likeness of a subject extremely fast.

 

In 2005 he developed his very own unique show and launched it on the very first episode of Australia’s Got Talent.   “It was never JUST about the speed painting.  I developed the show around ENTERTAINMENT, having fun with the audience and providing a unique experience”. It certainly shows for this down-to-earth performer who with his paint splattered clothing, may have his audience up dancing or singing whilst he paints.

Why Brad? 

 

• Totally unique - his shows really are one of a kind. Audiences want something entirely different, it's not only entertainment but a talking point long after. eg. Brad has performed shows on the same night as some of the best singers in Australia. What is amazing is that audiences watch every brushstroke for 30 minutes, whilst singers often only 'hold' the attention of the audience for one song. 

 

• Customising shows on an international scale – From painting logos to CEO’s, Brad has rave reviews from corporate audiences internationally. He can customize his show to the audience type (and non English speaking audiences). 

 

• Super high impact, yet travels alone. It is simple - Brad is a solo act which means less expenses for acts which require multiple airfares, accommodation etc. He has a turnkey show ideal for events. 

 

• A Lasting Memory! Paintings that you can keep or auction for charity. No other entertainment type offers a ‘product’ at the end of the performance. These paintings are hanging in offices around the world and have also raised over a million dollars for charities. 

 

• Master of Ceremonies (MC) - Brad has MC'd a number of gala dinners and awards nights for up to 300 people, he can MC your event together with his show. 

 

• Roving caricatures - Brad commenced his career as a caricature artist and has a team of artists around Australia. He can arrange one to produce large portraits and caricatures in charcoal of guests during the event.
