Brian Olsen - "MLK "- Art in Action - Something New!

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 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.

Brian began his performance art career in 1998 as the assistant to renowned artist Denny Dent. He studied under Denny as his Tour/Studio Manager and Art Representative for over six years. During this period, Brian learned/practiced the painting techniques and performance style that Denny thrilled audiences with worldwide. Brian Olsen is the only student Denny mentored and coached.

I have always been passionate about art and the energy it can release. My passion for painting, especially the challenge of portraits, grew from varied roots: photography in Hawaii to landscape design in college (of all things). But it was Denny Dent who put it all together for me. He showed me how he used the SHOW part of the performance to drive home the real message of personal creativity, and how to let the music and audience drive the process to the dramatic conclusion. With Denny's encouragement and guidance, Brian Olsen launched his own performance career. Brian's Art in Action is modeled after Denny's, but the repertoire is more diverse. Brian's recent work of Sheryl Crow, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Kid Rock, and Jimmy Buffet had audiences blown away.

There is a simple message in Brian's show: Be yourself, be creative, and take chances. You never know what you might discover. But, whatever it is, do it with all your heart.
