This Artist Turns Spilled Paint Into Gorgeous Avalanches of Color
Continue reading


Thomas Blanchard doesn't paint like normal artists do. Instead of painstakingly applying colors to a canvas with a brush, he dumps gallons of brightly colored paints into a giant tank filled with oils and other liquids, producing psychedelic waterfalls of color that could never hang in an art gallery.

Instead, his colorful experiments are documented on video, through a series of short films that now include Myst , which adds generic shapes and letters into the mix, creating obstacles for the avalanches of paint to cascade around and over. They're wonderful to watch, but I can't help but wonder who has to clean up the resulting messes?
