The PopbangColour Shop is the place to buy prints by the contemporary British artist Ian Cook.Ian has become famous for his artwork which is created solely using the unique method of painting using radio-controlled cars, car tyres and toy car wheels.
With a first degree in Fine Art Painting from Winchester School of Art, Ian has a quirky edge and describes his work as a 'friendly explosion of colour' which captures attention through the unusual method of working and the premise of live performance art at automotive events.
Essentially – the idea for the process started for a number of reasons, Ian is an avid car enthusiast, a trained artist, and thirdly he was bought a radio controlled car for a Christmas present and was told "not to take it down your studio, and not to get paint on it"...(lightbulb moment) ... so like any bloke would - he listened to a bit of that conversation.
Many years later, having combined his passion of cars, toys and art, Ian has created complex and dynamic artworks including one the size of a three storey building, painted with real cars, featured on TV and travelled to different parts of the globe with a suitcase full of paint covered cars, PopbangColour is still going strong!
Currently all PopbangColour prints are produced on high quality Fine Art paper sized at 280mm x 227mm.
