Live Painting

Set the Scene
& Capture the Moment

Joseph Malfettone is an accomplished painter with over 13 years of training and a diverse interest and ability for multiple techniques. Having first learned Venetian Renaissance portraiture he went on to study painting codices from the High Renaissance while excelling in modern studios collegiately.

Each painting begins live, enthusing guests & subtly setting the tone for your event while giving the artist the chance to take in the scene himself. All works are then completed in-depth in a studio setting.
✢ Study photographs can be included.
