The Painters: Hero is an innovative live art show that incorporates live painting, mime, dance, and comedy into one action-packed and fun-filled performance. This progressive art performance has been performed worldwide and featured on television shows across Asia. Four talented artists are the stars of the show, displaying an astonishing amount of skill as they create immaculate pieces of art in a matter of just minutes. Famous historical figures, musicians, and comic book heroes come to life right before your eyes. If you’re lucky, you might even get the chance to go on stage yourself! 


Show Highlights

A wide variety of unique mediums and techniques are used in this performance. There is ‘Canvas Carving’, where figures are carved with light on on a black canvas, and ‘Action Painting’, where the artists dance, jump, shake, and spray on their canvas, making a masterpiece in record time.

The performance’s grand finale is the ‘Battle Drawing’ segment. The artists draw the three main characters of the classic Chinese novel, ‘Romance of the Three Kingdoms’, doing battle, as 3D video projection mapping and majestic music is interwoven for an epic, climactic conclusion.
