Quebec native Pierre Paul Fortin wants to be named the fastest painter in the world a record currently held by Andre Roger who completed 60 paintings in 57 minutes in 1986.
Fortin who looks amazingly like Randy Quaid is taking his shot at the title this Monday (Oct. 3) at New Yorks American Airlines Theatre and will attempt to one-up Rogers record by belting out tunes in French, English, German, and he says, Italian, if I have time as he paints.
He thinks New Yorkers will particularly enjoy his Rat Pack renditions of Fly Me To The Moon and Welcome To My World, as he creates spontaneous masterpieces with lots of colors wearing a race car drivers suit.
The artist insists he can paint in all types of styles, but admits, At such a high speed, you cant always do complicated pictures.
