Xi Ding is an international award-winning caricature artist based in Vienna, Austria. He is specialised in live quick draw caricature.

His unique style of caricature has developed from over ten years of experience studying classical portraiture, traditional European caricature and American cartoon. In less than three minutes he has the ability to capture the prominent features and personality of his subject in a humorous and appealing way.

He uses both the traditional and the digital medium for his caricatures. He is one of the fastest quick draw caricature artists worldwide and can draw up to 120 guests in an evening event and 160 guests in a full day event.

His ability goes far beyond the stereotypical “big nose and crooked teeth” caricatures. He has the talent to spot and exaggerate the appealing features of his subject. The simplicity of his designs reflects his sophisticated technique of expression. His caricatures not only bring fun to an event but also the opportunity for guests to appreciate themselves in a new and positive way.

During a 10 year career as a professional live caricaturist, he has made a name for himself as an event entertainer, and his shows have become very popular at business events, trade shows, and wedding parties, etc. His caricature shows can be seen not only in Vienna, but also across the country of Austria, as well as in Germany, Switzerland, France, Italy, Hungary.
