About ZariArt

We specialize in creating on-the-spot, custom items for events and parties. *We do not use stencils*, so anything is possible! While we are an art company, our quick and fascinating work is highly entertaining and tends to attract large crowds. We will airbrush on practically any surface, and can do practically any design. Bodies, hats, bags, clothing, shoes, helmets, boards, automobiles, etc. You say it, we spray it.

I started customizing my bike and had a theme in mind. The theme is western. I made a kick butt seat out of a saddle and thought why not go further and make this my horse from hell.I came across Zariarts website and gave him a call. Ran a couple ideas for a paint job involving skeleton horses charging straight out of hell. He threw out some great ideas with me and he nailed it. He did the tank so good that we are now doing the whole damn thing. When we are done no doubt this bike will be a head turner. Thanks Zariart.

Great Realistic Tattoos

By Chad S. on July 24, 2012

I was traveling back home to visit family in Idaho and I wanted to get some fake tattoos to startle them so I tracked down Damien. After some emails and phone calls we kind of figured out what I was looking for and set up a time to get the work done. When I got there we got right down to buisness and between the two of us figured out what I wanted, I just about got 2 entire sleeves of tattoos. They looked fantastic, one of them looked a little too good and I am now thinking about getting a real version of it. Everybody that didn't know me thought they were real and it went over very well and had the desired effect on people. so if you are looking for somebody to do realistic temporary tattoos this is your guy. He was very pleasant, laid back, and help to make the entire process enjoyable.

I was lucky to find Zariart back in 2011 as I needed an airbrush artist with edge for events all around Oregon and Washington. Damian let me drag him all around and use and abuse him and his talents! He did as many as 350 freehanded airbrushed items for us a day, which I'm sure is not his regular desired quantity, but he did it with a smile and a great sense of humor and made every event attendee leave our area with a smile and a memory which is exactly what we asked for! I cannot give him a higher review or recommendation!

I hired ZariArt for a company picnic, and I was amazed at the work he did! All airbrushing is done by hand, where most other people are using stencils. This artist has a knack for knowing the best way to give the customers what they want. He's incredibly fast, and gets through the line with ease. He's also friendly and talkative with the customers, which they all enjoy. I would totally recommend him for any type of large party. He used plain white hats for my picnic, ( I supplied.) and I was absolutely pleased with his service. I will be hiring him again!

Got a few shirts from this guy when he worked at Saturday Market. Just recently got another one and he's just as good as ever! His art is just amazing. Love this guy.
