A Colorado artist has created a unique niche with explosive performance art. Brian Olsen calls it "Art in Action."

Olsen combines motion with music. He can turn a large blank canvas in to a work of art in less than five minutes. In the process, he pulls the audience into his creativity.

"So that they can experience what they would normally just see on a gallery wall, that creative process I go through," Olsen said.

Olsen began his professional career more than a dozen years ago. He believes his art can inspire people to let go, take chances and be creative.

"It's a moment in time; creative, expressive, that's what I'm trying to show my audience, that it's not what you do, it's the way that you do it that makes you an artist," Olsen said. "So take this experience, the energy and apply it to your own life and be an artist."
