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 enthralls 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.
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.– BSG on behalf of Leighton Holdings

I’d like to thank you for your performance at the Bridgestone conference … not only was it fantastic you were so good to deal with – I can’t speak highly enough of you.– Ci Create
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.”– Gurus Entertainment
