Artist of the Week: Paul Cézanne

Popup Painting's 'artist of the Week' is Paul Cezanne. Paul Cezanne was a French artist and Post-Impressionist painter. Cézanne used repetitive, exploratory brushstrokes and planes of colour to create his paintings. The artist regarded color, line, and "form" as one and the same thing, or inseparable aspects for describing how the human eye actually experiences nature. Unsatisfied with [...]

We believe that with a little guidance and the right materials, everybody is capable of unleashing their creativity and creating something they can be proud of. And even if a [...]


Phyllissa and her team were brilliant. They come in and set up in record time, have a great range of themes to choose from. I've enjoyed the Van Gogh and Banksy events and loved every minute. It's so much fun to compare your art work with your group of friends. They ran a hen do for me and it was brilliant. It's a laid back, informal environment and you get to learn some handy painting tips! I'll definitely be going again. Thanks guys!

It was really good fun, and I’d definitely go again.  Both the Rugby Boy and I commented on how relaxed we were for a Friday night – it was really easy to relax and chill, and to be honest by the end we weren’t too fussed by the end results, it was just a great night!... A really fun, relaxing, different evening at the end of a busy week. Definitely a date night to remember!

Thank you to everyone at PopUp Painting for organising a painting session for my hen party. The team went out of their way in securing a new venue close to our other activities (which was perfect - very central and with lots of light), organising drinks, and making a special themed playlist. There were a range of artistic talents amongst us, but everyone got stuck in with clear step-by-step instructions from the artist. We all loved it!

Pop Up Painting was the perfect team building activity. Drinks, music and food both aided and distracted the 'artists' from the masterpieces they were creating. Phyllissa and team were very helpful and great fun. A thoroughly enjoyable evening was had by all and we're already discussing our next painting event! Have already recommended to anyone and everyone.
