"Jeremy Sutton is a true fine-artist and also an incredible addition to the vibrancy of special events. We had him at our launch event last week and he was a hit! People flocked to him and were charmed by him, as well as amazed at his ability to digitally paint a portrait in a short time. The addition of the stylized background makes it a very valuable addition to our clients. They're already calling us to book him... the next BIG thing in event entertainment."
~ Natasha Miller, President, Entire Productions
"We want you to know how much we not only enjoyed our experience (being painted by you) at Cirque du Soleil in San Francisco, but what a pleasure it was to meet you and become acquainted with your work.You made the experience not only fun, but you put us at ease and we are very happy with our digital portrait. You are a true professional and we would highly recommend you."
~ Janet & John R., Aromas, CA
I create unique and engaging real-time live digital portraits (without use of photography or video capture) for corporate special events, trade shows, conferences, company get-a-ways, VIP entertainment, award ceremonies, inaugurals, celebrations, open houses and galas. My unique and fascinating form of interactive entertainment can be enjoyed by many people watching the process unfold on the large screen. I've performed live painting for clients including Apple, Google, Cirque du Soleil, IBM, Microsoft, CISCO, Wacom, Corel, Bill Graham Presents, Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco, Jack Morton Worldwide, TED Conferences, IDG, Tech Museum and Virgin Atlantic Airlines. I work across all media, from using ink, pastel, acrylic and oils, to using cutting-edge state-of-the-art digital paint. The unique way I can combine real-time live portraiture with the use of digital media offers an intriguing, exciting, entertaining and memorable experience. I can customize my paintings to suit each situation, incorporating into my paintings logos, motifs, themes, textures, photos and products.
The Happy Feet, Happy Paint video on PaintboxTV.com an example of a three minute live painting I created in Sweden using paint on hardboard. This will give you a sense of the dynamism, enthusiasm and energy I bring to my performances. When I work with digital paint media the painting can be projected as large and dramatically as you wish! I painted on a 50 foot high projection screen at the George Coates Theater in San Francisco. My set up can range from a 21 inch display for a "small footprint" option, up to a "high impact" 6' x 4' rear projection system that you see in action in the photograph above. The result in all cases is a unique live art performance that captivates, enthralls, inspires and entertains, all at the same time.
