PopUp Painting’s colours!

We’ve all seen that Skittles advert right?… ‘Grab the rainbow, taste the rainbow.’ You won’t be tasting any rainbows of paint at PopUp Painting, not matter how scrumptious the paint looks on your palette (although it’s not toxic!). Grabbing the rainbow won’t happen either, sorry! Do you know how full your palette would be if we handed […]

PopUp Painting’s Paint!

You may have already guessed that a PopUp Painting event can’t run without paint. With two 45 minute parts to an event, the best paint we can use is Acrylic. Acrylic paint is a fast drying medium, perfect for layering, and for having a painting dry enough to take home at the end of the evening.  Although we do encourage […]

(Best to leave that discussion for another time). However, it got me wondering what is the super power and appeal for such […]

A Van Gogh Experience For You

The Art Institute of Chicago have created a 3D replica of Van Gogh’s famous Bedroom painting, while also making the room available for rent on Airbnb for only US$10 a night. (Great, […]

You can paint Street Art!

The infamous Banksy strikes again!... That's right, there is a new Banksy. It has been created on a derelict building opposite the French embassy. Quick go see it before it goes! Banksy, as we know him (or not), is a Bristol based stencil artist. His name, style and brand of urban-war, anti-establishment has earned him [...]
