About Barrie James Art

Barrie James Art is a service based out of Gateshead, Tyne and Wear, in North East England, specialising in caricature drawings. Live caricatures are a fantastic way to entertain your guests at a wedding or party whether as an icebreaker during an afternoon drinks reception or as a hilarious addition to an evening event. Lead artist Barrie is one of the top caricaturists in the United Kingdom and the overall winner of the prestigious Caricon International Caricature Convention 2018.

Services Offered

Barrie James Art is dedicated to providing guests with an unforgettable experience. Barrie focuses strongly on the entertainment value by mingling and chatting with your guests while drawing them. He is able to produce one high-quality caricature every 3 minutes that many clients keep forever as a souvenir of their day. Unlike many other caricaturists who work from a fixed easel, this method prevents queues from forming and Barrie is able to entertain large groups in a short period of time. As a full-time professional caricaturist, he can be relied upon to provide an outstanding service.

    Amazing Artwork, Awesome Artist

    We had Barry entertain at our wedding and he did a brilliant job, he started drawing straight away and had everyone entertained with his portraits. We have a drawing of us and my daughter that he drew, up in the living room now and is great memory of our day.

    Honestly he was a brilliant extra for our wedding and I’d definitely recommend him to my friends

    Amazingly talented and entertaining

    Barrie was fantastic, really flexible with our wedding date changing. Everyone loved his caricatures! He was very professional and we’ve had so many guests telling how fantastic he was. He made every effort to get to everyone despite the size of the queue that had formed and he made an extra special effort for me and my wife. I can’t recommend Barrie enough!
