If you have been following Anderson Cooper’s latest show, you will have seen he held a little Anderson Viewer’s Got Talent section. You may have come across the speed painting episode. In this episode, the speed painter was given a challenging assignment of completing a portrait within a matter of 90 seconds. As the time ticked on, the audience could never quite understand what the painter was up to. But when the 90 seconds got over, the painter turned the canvas upside down, and everyone was surprised to see a fantastic portrait of Anderson Cooper. The videos of this show went viral the very next day.
Even before this speed painter displayed his skills on the Anderson Cooper show, speed painting as a form of entertainment has been gaining ground over the years. The best entertainment agencies now offer well known speed painters and include their performances as part of their entertainment options, alongside other traditional events such as magic shows and circus tricks. Talents and Productions is one such artistic agency that make arrangements for speed painting shows.

Another group of speed painters have the talent to create graffiti of different type. This talented group from France can create any piece of work within a matter of three minutes, an innovative and fresh experience for the audience.
