Fast, vibrant and choreographed to music. That is the unique performance viewers will experience when they watch Gabino Martinez perform his highly entertaining live speed painting. This self taught artist brings an explosive experience to a live show with a performance consisting of painting on a spinning canvas to a variety music. In a matter of minutes a large blank canvas becomes a beautiful piece of art that derived from his imagination and from the energy of the music. “There’s no time to think” Gabino says. “You only have the length of a song or two to complete a painting, and I have to trust my instinct and energy to create something that relates to a specific subject matter”. He loves the type of pressure his performance puts on him and he enjoys sharing his imagination and talent with others as he performs.
