Neal Portnoy Art Studio
About this pro
Neal's brand of entertainment blends artistic skill and a keen comedic wit to produce not just a caricature but also an experience that people remember. As Neal entertains his subject and chats up the crowd, an image appears on paper, one that captures the person's spirit while impishly adding a twist of humor to create a unique caricature. There are hundreds of caricature artists throughout the country, but none can give an audience the full package that Neal provides. Like an improvisational comedian, Neal absorbs what he sees and hears, interacts with the crowd, and focuses on the moment while creating true-to-life, instant caricatures, all while making people laugh. In addition to his entertainment talent, Neal is an accomplished nationally recognized illustrator. His unique artistic ability to capture likenesses from reference photography has been used by private, corporate, sports, academic and nonprofit/charity markets in numerous creative applications for the past 40 years. Commissioned assignments of Neal's artwork have been used for special events, commemorative milestone lithographs, recognition awards, sports premiums, and many NCAA institutions. Neal's original artwork has been reproduced, printed, and published on and for many of creative applications, including print media outlets, textiles industry usage, and numerous premium marketplaces.
