Cleveland, OH - Krazy Paint, the Charity Panel Jam, will invade the Summit Racing I-X Center Piston Powered Auto-Rama in Cleveland, Ohio, March 14-16, 2014! Krazy Paint brings together pinstripers and other artists to paint items that go up for sale and auction. Then, 100 percent of that money goes to a kid’s charity. They do this to honor a longtime pinstriper’s tradition of helping kids. The crowds that generate around the Krazy Paint booth can attest to the popularity of the artists and their work.
Krazy Paint artists donate their time, talent and materials to help raise money for kids. Coming from places like Ohio, Pennsylvania, New York, Michigan, Indiana and even Canada, they spend their own money to be a part of it. Painters will typically enter the event with art ready to sell and create even more items over the weekend. In return, Krazy Paint does everything it can to send painters home happy when it’s over. Krazy (Goodie) Bags are presented to the painters and are filled with donated items such as gift cards, products, hats and T shirts. Pinstriping and sign painting suppliers such as 1 Shot Paint and Mack Brush donate the products used as well as prizes for the painters.
And Krazy Paint is more than just raising money. It’s a place for artists to get together and socialize while trading both new and old ideas for painting, pinstriping, cartooning, signs and other types of painting. Artists have fun with features like the Tag Team Panel Jam where six artists paint on six identical panels, then rotate them so every artist ‘Tags’ every panel. At Krazy Paint, they do this to music, both recorded and live. It’s one of many features unique to Krazy Paint. This year, two new Krazy Paint features, never before seen at any Charity Panel Jam, will be introduced at the event. Krazy Paint officials are only saying that two painters will head home very happy and well rewarded for their contributions.
Krazy Paint is also the new place in the Midwest to buy high end, Kustom Kulture Art. Kulture Art is hand painted designs, cartoons and signs on everything from framed panels, toilet seats, mailboxes to musical instruments, car parts and clothing. Folks all over the world are avidly collecting Kulture Art and with over 50 artists contributing to Krazy Paint, the variety is exceeded only by the quantity. Artists use painting techniques involving Hot Rod icons such as Kandy Kolors, Gold Leaf and Metalflake paint to create these works of art.
