Notes[edit | edit source]

  • An NPC's shop window can display a maximum of 39 items. During Christmas, the number of items the Painter can sell at once increases above 39, which can push some items off the bottom of the shop window, making them technically unobtainable during Christmas. Assuming the Painter is in a pre-Hardmode world and talked to in a Forest biome, the Sparkle Stone Wallpaper and Starlit Heaven Wallpaper will be affected by this. More wallpapers will become unavailable, going up the list, if the world is in Hardmode or the Painter is talked to in different biomes.
  • On the 3DS version 3DS version, the painting tools and paint he would normally sell are unavailable, due to the general unavailability of paint on this version.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • It is possible to use Teleporters or the King Statue to teleport him to different biomes in order to obtain all of his paintings. Alternatively, one can change the biome he is currently staying in.
  • Another method is to build a small House in each biome and wait until night. If an NPC is assigned to a House at night, and the player moves a screen away, they will suddenly pop into the House. After that simply backtrack to the House, buy the painting, and repeat in as many biomes as you would like.
    • The Crimson and Corruption make this difficult due to House location requirements. The easiest way is to build valid housing on corruptible blocks such as dirt, stone or sand, then using the Clentaminator with the required evil solution to spray the area around the house till the Painter begins selling the painting. Once bought, you can use Green Solution to purify the area again. This can also work with the Hallow if you don't wish to move the Painter from their house, and can be done in pre-Hardmode with the Evil Powders.

  • Trivia[edit | edit source]

    • It is apparent that most of his names are references to famous artists.
    • He is most likely of Italian origin, considering most of his names are typical Italian names.
    • Two of the names, Mario and Luigi, are the two main characters of the Super Mario Brothers video games.
    • The name Darren is a reference to a letter sent to Red by a person whose friend named Darren passed away. Red then put Darren in the pool of possible painter names.
    • The quote "I'm all out of titanium white, so don't even ask." is a direct reference to the American painter, art instructor, and television host Bob Ross.
    • His quote "No, no, no... There's TONS of different grays! Don't get me started..." may be a reference to the novel Fifty Shades of Grey.
    • The quote "When the thunder rolls, and the lightning strikes... it really brings out the colors on the furniture." may be a reference to the song The Thunder Rolls by Garth Brooks.
    • Like the Arms Dealer, Cyborg and Goblin Tinkerer, his quotes may reference him having a crush on a female NPC, in this case, the Dryad.
    • The Painter was sprited by former Terraria spriter Waffles.
    • The Painter is completely bald, as evidenced from the source files for NPCs without head wear.
    • If the Painter is talked to in a converted Snow biome or Desert biome, he will sell two biome-exclusive paintings at once. For example: If the Painter is talked to in a Hallowed Desert, he will sell the paintings "The Land of Deceiving Looks" and "Secrets of the Sands" at once.
    • Even with Blood and Gore turned off, his paintbrush and paint bucket will always drop when he dies, as if they were body parts.
    • The name Guido may be a reference to the italian painter Guido Reni[2].
    • The BestiaryBestiary entry for the Painter: "The Painter can talk about all the different shades of colors with which one can paint the walls. He'll sell but a handful of them!"
