    Hello! My husband and I will be in Vegas next week for our 1st wedding anniversary. The 1st anniversary is the "paper anniversay" and I think it would be cool to bring one of our wedding pictures and ask the spray paint artist that works in front of Harrah's to paint a copy of it. Does anyone know if he's still there and what hours? Has anyone ever asked for a custom painting? Any and all information is appreciated!!

    Even if he's not there, I think it won't be difficult to find one. No idea if they do custom work, but most likely they would, but it will cost you (of course)

    Great idea for an anniversary gift, though

    I didn't see any anywhere on the strip earlier this month but I guess it depends on the time/day. There are always 1-2 (at least) downtown.

    There is a guy who has his own booth out on the sidewalk by PH.
    Walk south of PH and right around the bend outside Walgreens and in front of the pizza place is the guy.

    I don't believe they do custom work at all. They seem to have about 7 or 8 different pieces that they duplicate over and over.....think they are trained somewhere on these and don't really have tremendous artistic skills. Even if you look at different spray paint artists, they all seem to be doing the same prints.

    I agree, while these guys are really good at what they do they pretty much only paint Vegas buildings and skies/moon/stars. I bet a wedding photo would just look awful.

    Thanks for the info. We got back on Sunday morning and I'm sad to say that I couldn't find anyone on the strip or DT. However, I did find that one of them has a website and takes custom orders....unfortunately he isn't answering my emails. The particular picture I wanted is a sillhouette of us in front of the Bellagio fountains lit up at night. It's very similar to the Bellagio picture I've seen them do before....just with the shape of us from the shoudlers up. Oh well - maybe next year! :)
