Artist Indulges In a Bit Of Tit For Tat


"Vantablack" absorbs 99.96 per cent of light, which makes it the darkest pigment known to man and artists dreamed of using it in their works. When NanoSystems announced that Indian artist Anish Kapoor had been granted exclusive rights to use the world’s darkest black artists were furious. Over ten years British artist Stuart Semple has developed the world's pinkest pink and you can now buy 50 grams of it for $4.95 - unless your name is Anish Kapoor. Semple has attached this disclaimer to the product:
*Note: By adding this product to your cart you confirm that you are not Anish Kapoor, you are in no way affiliated to Anish Kapoor, you are not purchasing this item on behalf of Anish Kapoor or an associate of Anish Kapoor. To the best of your knowledge, information and belief this paint will not make it's way into that hands of Anish Kapoor.
