What is a ”live wedding painter and artist” you ask? It’s an artist who is trained to capture moments and events while painting them on canvas using oil paint in real-time. This is such an exciting time to get married with this trend finally catching on in Toronto!
This wedding trend has been in Europe for some time now and is becoming a tradition around the world for those getting married in this day and age. It’s about time, as I have been waiting for the wedding painter-artist trend to finally make its mark.
Brides-to-be are going back to old traditions, keepsakes and momentums. Did you know there are many trained artists all over the world, who specialize in painting live events? It is becoming a staple and is highly sought out from brides and individuals celebrating events they want to capture.
Your guests will love this artistic element added to your wedding day and will be excited to see if they are in the painting! Within hours, you will be able to see the results, making your special day even more memorable.

How the process works to obtain a live wedding painting from Olga.
Olga arrives an hour before the start of the event and she begins to sketch and paint the background. She will identify the important details of who to include in the live painting ahead of time. As the guests arrive, they love seeing the transformation of watching themselves appear on canvas.
As a Toronto portrait artist, Olga is available for creating beautiful portraits in oil, acrylic and watercolors.
