What clients love most about Quincy Sutton’s artwork is that it’s totally unique. Nobody draws portraits and caricatures quite like he does, and he has amazing ability to adapt his style to suit the wishes of his clients. As a result, Quincy is a Los Angeles artist who is in high demand.
Originally from Ohio, Quincy trained as a caricature artist, honing his skills and his illustration style while also learning the ropes in graphic design, fashion and art direction. Painting at live events, he attracts huge crowds with people lining up for over an hour to receive their own personalised piece of Pop Art. While waiting, they’re mesmerised by his skills.
Inspired by the music of Thelonious Monk and mid-century architecture, and fueled by sushi and Italian sandwiches, Quincy studied at the Columbus College of Art and Design.
Quincy has travelled the world looking for the perfect materials to work with, and uses paint markers, acrylics and ink on archival papers. Drawing live, he keeps it fun by bringing a touch of showmanship to the event through his attire while capturing each sitter’s likeness in less than 10 minutes.
Quincy’s illustration style is bold and minimal, using strong, graphical shapes to create a simple and striking portrait. Working live, his style is expressive and fun – painterly with a personal touch.
