Art in Motion: Mike Debus

A lifelong resident of Kansas City, KS, Mike Debus has always had a passion for painting. After graduating from college with a Bachelor of Fine Arts, he spent a few years in Corporate America before pursuing his dream to become a full-time artist.

In 2008, Mike was asked to paint live on stage at a large youth conference. Initially, he hesitated but eventually accepted the challenge and found the experience exhilarating and inspiring! Since then, Mike has made performance painting his focus. His creative mission continues as he takes his talents around the country to entertain audiences of all sizes.

Mike combines music, paint, and movement to give audiences a truly one of a kind experience!

Along with creating extraordinary images in a matter of minutes, Mike adds value to communities. Typically, after a 60-minute performance, three painting are completed. One painting is presented to the organization as a gift, and two more are donated to the organization to raffle off. This gives attendees an opportunity to possess a keepsake from this experience, and the group raises funds!
