Over at least the last one hundred years
there have been many kinds of mediums who have produced
paintings and drawings supposedly inspired by spirit contact.
Judge for yourself.

Rita Berkowitz Psychic Artist
Painting medium Florencio Anton from Brazil says he became
aware of spirit people at the age of eight and began developing
his mediumship at the age of 11, producing spirit voices
and automatic writing and first. Then dead artists began
working through him and he has been giving public demonstrations
for the past 20 years during which time he has produced
over 5,000 paintings by over 100 artists. Each is said to
be unique: he has never produced the same image more than
once. The paintings are sold to support a charitable orphanage.
Watch this video of Florencio at work in 2007.
A teacher, lecturer and Brazilian physical medium, Jose
Medrado, was a medium from childhood. He only started painting
mediumistically at the age of 27, when the spirit Renoir
came up to him and proposed to jointly undertake a work
which would "change paint into bread" in order
to raise funds for the orphanage supported by his Spiritist
Center, which was going through financial problems at that
time. His psychic powers have been
tested by researchers in laboratories in Europe, where he
gave lectures in many countries.
GASPERETTO - BRAZILIAN MEDIUM
Stanislav Grof's (pictured) book "When
the Impossible Happens"
there's a chapter about Luiz Antonio Gasparetto, a psychologist
from Brazil who is able to go into trance and paint in the
style of a wide range of dead famous painters (Monet, Picasso,
Rembrandt, da Vinci, Modigliani, Manet, van Gogh, Gauguin,
etc). He doesn't just paint exact replicas of existing paintings
but "new motifs rendered in easily recognizable styles
of individual artists".
Dr Grof describes how they actually turned all the lights
off except for one little red light over the paper (red
so that he couldn't distinguish color)...he would at times
paint with two hands two different paintings at the same
time and even did one upside down under the table with his
right foot. Loyd Auerbach who was present at one of the
demonstrations writes: "The climax of the demonstration
was when he did four paintings at once: one with each hand,
one with each bare foot (these being done under the table
at which he was seated), while his eyes were closed and
he carried on a conversation. Each of the four paintings,
by the way, was supposedly by a different one of the spirit
artists (and they were, in fact, in four distinct styles
that an art expert there related to the named artists)."
