Denny Dent's Work

Denny Dent developed his own, unique style of painting and prepared by using photographs for making a composite sketch first, included the music and choreography, and was ready to do his "Two-Fisted Art Attack" performance as he called it.

Besides painting with several brushes in both hands, he would also paint with his bare hands, created his subjects upside down and rotated his artwork 180 degrees after he was done, and presented a dynamic show of art, music and dance to his audience that left them in complete awe. He could even paint with his feet, but hardly ever did that in public.

Denny soon was hired to perform as an opening act for Steppenwolf and toured with the B-52s, visiting and performing many colleges during the 1980s. During the 90s, he worked at art festivals, but his major breakthrough came in 1994 when he showed his "passionate dance on canvas" to 300,000 people at the Woodstock '94 concert.

Within no time he painted at rock concerts, sporting, corporate, and other main events for which he received $25,000 per performance. His portraits included John Lennon, Jimi Hendrix, Tina Turner, General Colin Powell, Jack Niklaus, Martin Luther King Jr., Beethoven, John Elway, Tom Lehman, and Pope John Paul II, to name a few.

His way of painting was hard to describe, you had to see to it to believe and experience what was happening on stage. It was beyond any stretch of the imagination, but so dynamic, frenetic, fast, and furious, that it resulted in several herniated discs for Denny!
