Creating Your Live Art Interactive Installations

Our team at The Magic Brush is focused on creating unforgettable event experiences, in line with your brands values and aesthetics. We can either work together with your events team or work independently to create unique experiences. We will make sure you have creative control and input throughout the process to ensure a stunning piece of artwork.

We can discuss entertainment options to suit your requirements and budget. We can come up with the concept based on your theme or event. We oversee design, build and completion. If we can’t complete it in-house, we collaborate with a range of business with whom we have established relationships to ensure we deliver the highest quality who might specialize in a specific area.

We can also supply talented models, actors and dancers to showcase your interactive artwork too! Our team will customise our service to suit whatever theme or creative ideas you have in mind.

Custom Costume Specific

A design does speed up the making process and ensures you are getting exactly what you imagined.

    We contracted the services of The Magic Brush for our client organising the Good Food Awards 2016 at the Auckland Museum. This was celebrating NZ’s best dining and hosted a very high caliber of guest, also inclusive of extensive media coverage. With the inspiring creativity and professional quality of their existing portfolio, I had no hesitation in their fit for this high tier project.

    The entertainment for this event was requested very last minute so I was extremely impressed and comforted at the dedication and time The Magic Brush were able to allocate to make sure this was a complete success. They designed a range of stunning concepts in a matter of days and had the two final pieces created within the week! As a live art installation, the final construction had to be done at the Museum on the day of the event. This pressure was elegantly brushed aside by Sam and her colleague Sani; it was a performance in itself watching them dress the empty outfit frames with fresh leaves and foliage to create the stunning designs you can see in the featured gallery.

    Our clients were over the moon, the guests were amazed and thrilled at the interactivity of the roaming canapé server and the featured podium model hosting the macaroons was photographed to no end. The whole concept for this pre-dinner entertainment was pulled off an absolute treat!

    I would absolutely recommend The Magic Brush team for any project or event, large or small. They were a joy to work with, fantastic communicators, extremely hardworking and ridiculously creative.
