Black Tie International - Event Talent
Gregory Adamson



Artist Gregory Adamson brings “oohs” and “aahs” to many a room.

Why not YOURS?


Performance Artist, Gregory Adamson, Facing the Music


“I love entertaining. I love painting in front of people.”

– Gregory Adamson


Gregory also believes in creating art not for just art's sake, but rather, for the sake of doing good for philanthropic endeavors.

Why not for YOURS?

Adamson is a renowned Southern California artist who has gained domestic and international acclaim for his mesmerizing, fast-paced performance art, in which he paints to music with bare hands or brushes, creating huge masterpieces in just minutes, with a live auction following the performance that sends off his painting to the highest bidder. His subject matter includes historical leaders, sports legends, music icons and other celebrities of pop culture.


Types of Events--and The Result

He is involved with charity benefits of all ranges/levels, as well as festivals, corporate events, political events, and trade shows.  To date, Greg has raised 100s of 1000s of dollars for charities.  He generally raises in the $3000-10,000 range with his paintings, but recently his painting sold 2x for $100,000 each – thus benefiting the charity that night even further! it’s the experience of Adamson’s performance that entices those bidding to own a beautifully-crafted piece of art they’ve witnessed being created, in a unique fashion.



"My husband and I attended a fundraiser for the Cabrillo Marine Aquarium…our first time to this positive and beautiful event. …We enjoyed the silent auction and our lovely dinner, soon followed by the live auction which started with a performance--a real highlight of the evening. Greg Adamson started, and at first I wasn’t sure what I was watching as he painted in an intense manner to the music.  Then I realized it was upside down, and he was painting John Lennon. [“Love” was our wedding song.] I looked at my husband and said, ‘I am going to get that painting.’ It was amazing!…

We absolutely love it.”  - Marla K., Playa Vista





Greg’s History & Clientele

A former banker, Adamson has painted from coast to coast and abroad, performing at concerts with major recording artists, and at regional and national political events. He has entertained for members of Congress and other national leaders, for Olympics officials, business groups, major charity fundraisers and festivals. He has clients across the spectrum of the music industry, and he has created multiple portraits for the Grammy Foundation’s MusiCares events—of Carole King, Neil Diamond, Paul McCartney, Bruce Springsteen, Barbra Streisand, and Neil Young.


His commissioned works are owned or exhibited by celebrities, elected officials, major corporations, public institutions, professional firms, and in the Congressional Offices in Washington, D.C. His work has also been exhibited in New York, Canada, United Kingdom, China and Japan.


Final Word

As prices for his art have increased substantially based on his growing demand by collectors and organizations, he is able to benefit the charities even further. Adamson says, “I’ve always served on non-profit boards, have done volunteer service with a lot of charities, and it occurred to me I can use my art as part of my mission and help organizations raise money or just be of service to them through my art. It’s the thing I can do best for them.”
