John Bukaty is an American pioneer of the live painting movement. He began his career twenty years ago on canvas capturing weekly band performances at a Kansas City brewpub, but has since traveled to India, Ireland, Mexico, and beyond creating and sharing his work through mediums ranging from painting and sculpture to poetry and apparel.

One of Bukaty’s most unique gifts is his ability to capture the essence of live action on canvas. He has been selected to commemorate such events as the NFL Super Bowl, the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival, and the American Century celebrity golf championship. As a result, he has created a vast national network of fans and collaborators. He works often with Grammy Award-winning musician, Anders Osborne, on the Send Me A Friend project, which helps support newly-sober musicians on the road.

Leveraging his work and artistic influence, Bukaty has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for organizations such as the YMCA, the American Cancer Society, the Community Service League, the SPCA, and the Halo Foundation. He is an annual feature in Paul Rudd’s charity event, The Big Slick, to help raise money for Children’s Mercy Hospital of Kansas City. He also devotes a great deal of time to teaching art to students of all ages. These charitable pursuits have not only shaped his work over time, but have cemented his belief in the powerfully important impact art can have on our communities.
