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!).

Last weekend I went along to the London Super Comic Con event, where thousands gather to meet and greet their favourite comic artist, buy loads of memorabilia and ponder why cosplaying has become so popular? (Best to leave that discussion for another time). However, it got me wondering what is the super power and appeal for such […]

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, […]
