cubist portraits

I try to make my cubist portriats more flattering and representative of the person than the cubist portraits below painted by the famous cubist, Picasso.

Send me a photo of your face.

It's best if I have a front and a side view of your face but not necessary.

You have two options.


This is a 9"W x 12"H watercolor on acid fee poster paper. They are ready to be framed. In person they take from 10 to 15 min. Working from a photo allows me to spend more time on them. You can have the original art scanned and printed on canvas, framed or stretched in various sizes. I recommend calling Gerri at Put It On Canvas because she gives my clients get a 10% discount.

To get started, EMAIL your photos to me.


Order an acrylic painting on canvas. Paintings can take up to two weeks to complete. To get started, EMAIL your photos to me.


Add a unique, entertaining and fun time to your next party or event. Not your ordinary quick street portrait, this is a cubist portrait or "Picasso Style Portrait". In just fifteen minuets, a full color cubist style portrait can be drawn for your guest. Up to four guests an hour will leave your party with a frame ready treasure they can keep for a lifetime. They are not realistic portraits; they are fun and colorful. However, they still seem to capture the person’s personality with just a few representational items. It may be the hair or the clothes or eyes that nails it.

Your guest will fight to be next in line so I found it is best to provide numbers and have a timer. They are drawn on high quality, acid free, smooth poster paper. I use watercolor markers that have a special brush tip so they dry fast. I roll them up with a rubber band so they travel home safely. This allows me to quickly create the portrait for your guest.

So, if you want something unique for your event, please EMAIL me.

Learn more about cubism from wikipedia...

Cubism was a 20th century avant-garde art movement, pioneered by Pablo Picasso and Georges Braque, that revolutionized European painting and sculpture, and inspired related movements in music and literature. The first branch of cubism, known as "Analytic Cubism", was both radical and influential as a short but highly significant art movement between 1907 and 1911 in France. In its second phase, Synthetic Cubism, (using synthetic materials in the art) the movement spread and remained vital until around 1919, when the Surrealist movement gained popularity.
