#HipNJWeddings: Live Event Painting, A Wedding Must-Have

For live event painter, Anthony Galati, event painting is more than just a hobby. Our very own Lisa Marie Latino sat down with Anthony as he shared with #HipNJ why live painting at a wedding is a must!

Anthony says the uniqueness of event painting is what draws in his customers. It’s something different that you don’t see everyday. Anthony will paint the scene in the room and the people as the event is occurring. These paintings can also pose as a family heirloom for the bride and groom to cherish forever!

The cool thing about these paintings is the faces are completely recognizable! Anthony tells Lisa that these live events are some of the hardest things to paint.

Anthony has a long history of art but event painting is something he has started in the past year and a half. He made art his full time career 5 years ago and has 20 years of oil painting experience! Anthony gets his inspiration from combining the constantly changing outdoor landscapes with everyday still painting.

With #HipNJ’s plentiful wedding venues, these beautiful and elaborate settings are great for event painting! For more information on Anthony and his work check out his website at www.EventPaintingsByAnthony.com.
