FROM ARTIST TO ENTERTAINER: THE BRAD BLAZE SUCCESS STORY
If you want an impressive and entertaining speaker or talent for your next event, you can do no better than Brad Blaze, often touted as the fastest portrait artist in the world. He regularly provides entertainment and keynote presentations at various corporate events all over the world, and can truly wow a crowd while getting them involved in his performance at the same time.
Brad began his career working for an international finance company, but he always loved to draw, and was uniquely capable of doing so quickly. He developed his speed-painting show in 2006 and has since worked with some of the top companies and individuals in the world.
His show centres on his ability to quickly paint large portraits of iconic individuals in a unique way - painting subjects upside down, transforming paintings from one subject to another and using fire, glitter and gold in his performances. He does such paintings of celebrities and CEOS, as well as products and logos, all in less than five minutes.
Some of his most famous work includes portraits of golfers Tiger Woods, Formula 1 driver Nico Rosberg and the late Richie Benaud. He has also painted four Prime Ministers, world leaders, Sultans and countless actors, including Eric Bana and Chris Hemsworth. As at 2016, he has raised over $2,000,000 with the sale of his artwork for charities.
One of the most original and entertaining public speakers and performers, Brad definitely knows how to not only put on a show - in entertainment shows he blends comedy and story telling into his performance, whilst as a speaker he inspires with topics on transformation and creativity.
Brad Blaze was recently named ‘Entertainer of the Year’ at the prestigious Australian Event Awards and spends the majority of his time now performing throughout Australia and Asia.
