Painting the Team

NYSketches painted an event mural for the team for the Pepsi/Lipton Partnership at their holiday party at Gold Bar NYC earlier this year.  I painted about 70 faces, set in their tea plantation in Africa.  Here is the final painting, which will hang in the company’s meeting room.

…and here are some photos along the way:

Passover Seder Event Mural

I worked on an event mural at a Passover Seder along with NYSketches artist, Elizabeth Hutchinson.  The client provided us with photos of 10 of their guests, and photos of past seders at their house so that I could get an idea of the event decor.  I painted the background and 10 faces before the party.  At the dinner party, Elizabeth painted the additional 15 faces, and guest really enjoyed seeing themselves on canvas!  After the party I completed the painting with final touches.  Here it is:

Event Mural at BizBash Event Style Expo

This week, NYSketches had a booth at the BizBash Event Style Show.  We showcased our services, and created an Event Mural, of notable New Yorkers.  Event attendees could have their portraits quickly painted next to their favorite celebrity.  One guest, who is known for her packaging  business, asked to be painted next to Martha Stewart.  See her with her beautifully wrapped package below.  Other celebrity New Yorkers painted in the mural:  Robert DeNiro, Martin Scorcese, Woody Allen, Spike Lee, Michael Strahan, Derek Jeter, David Letterman, Howard Stern, Sarah Jessica Parker, Tina Fey, Jay Z, Rudy Guiliani, and Michael Bloomberg.

Event Mural at Holiday Party

In August, we did an event mural for SLGreen Realty Corp. at their holiday-in-summer party.  The party was held at the Aspen Restaurant in NYC.  The mural was 6 x 4 ft, and I painted much of the mural before hand from photos of the guests at the event.  I incorporated the theme of the event into the mural in which all the guests were skiing down a mountain in Aspen.  Here are some photos of the mural in progress:
