Art in Action is an explosion: a colorful display of paint, energy, music and passion with a purpose!
Using fingertips, palms, elbows and up to three brushes in each hand, Brian Olsen paints portraits of famous people including musicians, sports figures, and top corporate heads on a four and a half by six foot canvas in just a matter of minutes. His creations are choreographed to music that is powerful and stimulates the senses. Brian's Art in Action is described as "an emotional experience" taking his audience through an amazing journey of excitement, suspense, cheer, and surprise. His ability to captivate his audience and share the experience of color, music, and action is a way to bring people into the world of art and creativity. It is a new art form that brings people together to share the explosion of art and stir up the personal creativity we all have within.
