Dark Rhino (detail)
Dark Rhino | Ink Drawing embellished with Gold Leaf | image 76 x 56 cm | SOLD
The background colour of this drawing is Black 3.0 by Stuart Semple. Anish Kapoor bought the rights to “The Blackest of Black” paint invented by NASA and stated that no other artist could use it! So Stuart Semple invented “The Pinkest Pink” and said every artist can purchase it except Anish Kapoor! You even had to sign an agreement to that that you were not Anish Kapoor when purchasing this paint. He was so angry and felt that nobody should own a colour! Later Stuart Semple invented his own black titled “Black 3.0” which is what Astra has used for this art work. This paint is totally light absorbing. The gold on the art work is 23ct gold leaf.
