We’ve discovered International and talented portrait artist, Olga Pankova, who can be commissioned to beautifully capture a scene, painted live on your wedding day!
Live Event Artistry provides a unique and exclusive way to preserve your special day by capturing your celebration on canvas – during the time of the event as it unfolds.
Your memories and the events of the day can be frozen in time forever on canvas in acrylic paint and presented to you that day! Your guests will love to watch as the process and progress unfolds. Once the painting is completed, you will have a heirloom you can cherish forever. Live Event Artistry is the perfect gift for any celebration from weddings and anniversary parties to birthday celebrations and many more!
Olga makes a point to arrive an hour before the event to begin painting the background and to learn the important details of who is to be included in the live event painting ahead of time. As the guests arrive, they love seeing the transformation of watching themselves appear on canvas.
A Russian National, born in Tashkent, Uzbekistan, Olga developed and honed her melodious, eclectic style from studies in Art and Design and graduated from The Republican Art Collage “P.Benkova” as an Artist-Designer. Initially a ceramic and glass Designer-Artist, as well as an established cartoonist in Tashkent, she was touched by her experiences in life and wanted to capture them in a new medium. Now as a newly established Portrait Artist in the Greater Toronto area, Olga has a passion for Portrait Paintings and a strong desire to create beautiful art that reflects the love and emotion of life’s precious moments. Pankova has placed 1st in a number of art competitions. She is currently a member of the Portrait Society of Canada, the Portrait Society of America and is the recipient of a number of industry awards including Wedding Industry Experts 2014 Awards Winner for Most Popular Entertainment in Canada
Here is what Olexander Wlasenko, Curator for the Station Gallery in Whitby, Ontario had to say about Olga’s inspirational and original artwork…
“There’s nothing like experiencing art in person. Olga’s painting is no exception. Her rich textures and sumptuous colours are really activated by first-hand experience. Her powerful symbols will stay with you… her images resonate with you.”
Here at the Wedding Opera, we have to agree! Olga’s work is just breath taking with a whimsical sense of movement and colour. She perfectly captures the expression of love in the couples’ faces and the celebration of their new beginning! An original and one of kind Live Event Portrait is a wonderfully personal keepsake and reminder of the day you said, “I do” or any other special occasion.
