BOOKING A SILHOUETTE ARTIST
Originally popular in Europe in 1700s and 1800s, silhouette art – until recent years – has been something of a lost art and there are now only a few artists in the world today offering this service. A rare form of entertainment, having a silhouette artist at your event will add a unique and special touch to proceedings.
An exciting alternative to a caricaturist, silhouette artists will amaze and confound your guests with their incredible skill, adeptly cutting highly accurate likenesses in just a few minutes. Observing the traditional techniques used in the 18th century, our silhouette cutters create their portraits with black card, which is then mounted onto a white background for maximum effect, producing a wonderful keepsake for your guests.
Many of our silhouette artists can offer customised cards for silhouettes to be placed in and can even create pre-cut silhouettes of key people at your event. Having had the pleasure of cutting portraits of VIPs like Princess Anne, Shirley Bassey, Dawn French and various international Ambassadors, our silhouette artists really are the best of the best.
Perfect for weddings, trade shows, brand reveals, gala dinners, product launches and private parties, hand cut silhouettes give guests a unique and personal way to remember your event.
