Live Elvis Presley Painting to Rock ’n’ Roll Music

Speed Painting Elvis Presley to Jailhouse Rock at the Feria de San Telmo Buenos Aires, Argentina
Sundays in San Telmo are for repeating the same ritual over and over again. It's Feria de San Telmo - a colorful bazaar with a lot of crafts and entertaining artists like the guy in the picture. He used a black man-sized sheet as a canvas to paint on it wildly with his fingers while a ghetto blaster was screaming Jailhouse Rock. Gradually, he turned his blank canvas into something that I could recognize as the portrait of the King of Rock 'n' Roll.

They make it look so easy. Wish I had that talent.

I'm sure this gentleman has a lot of talent...I couldn't do what he's doing...

...and your eye is better than mine, too...Elvis? Alvin? Georgi Bush? ;-)

Fun to see an artist at work with his paint on his canvas!

People can stop looking for the King in the US - he's in Argentina! :)

Can he do Jorge Luis Borges?

Sounds like a great spectacle. Does it have to be Elvis every Sunday?

He was painting with his FINGERS? I wish I could watch that in person. It sounds amazing!
