Brian – Silhouette Artist
Brian is a gifted artist can be hired to work as a silhouette artist. An old French art that has been resurrected in this country and is performed in exactly the same way as it was done in 18th century France and England. Using only a pair of scissors and paper, he swiftly cuts silhouette profiles of your guests. These are then quickly fixed into a smart wallet-sized card. A truly exquisite souvenir that will keep for many years.
Brian can also offer informative, and often light-hearted presentations in silhouette art. This involves a talk on the art, a few demonstrations, a question and answer sessions and an informal workshop for any budding artists who like to try new skills. This is a great choice for team-building get-togethers.

”Otis and I just wanted to say a big thank you to you for coming all the way to Jersey and and helping to make our wedding day so special, it was really appreciated that you came all this way at such short notice. Everybody commented to me afterwards what a good idea the silhouettes had been, and that they had never seen them done before, as I said before it was much appreciated.”

“The party went exceptionally well thank you. And Brian played a large part in the evening’s success. Our guests were spellbound by Brian’s dexterity with a humble pair of scissors and some black card! I’d like to thank Contraband and Brian for their help in making our party one to remember.”
