Vor ein paar Monaten hatte sich Künstler Anish Kapoor die exklusiven Nutzungsrechte an Vanta Black gesichert, dem schwärzesten Schwarz aller Zeiten. Jetzt hat ihm der Macher des pinkestem Pink die Nutzung seiner ultrafluoreszierenden Farbe untersagt. Auf der Seite seines Webshops steht jetzt:

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.

Das Superpink gibt's auf Stuart Temples Website für 4 Pfund („It goes bonkers under a black light“).

pink2Semple developed the color (among others) over the last decade working with paint manufacturers from across the globe, looking to create the most vibrant colors for his work. The more a paint reflects light the more fluorescent it becomes, and Semple's PINK is very reflective, meaning it gives off a very powerful fluorescence. "The pink already chucks out bucket loads of light but then we made it water soluble so it can be used as a paint and that took it up a notch." explains the artist. "Basically, now it pretty much glows. Whilst Anish's absorbs nearly all light, mine reflects it, kind of the antithesis of what his is doing."

So what does Anish Kapoor think of all this? Has Semple told him? Will there be some kind of paint-off between the two colors? "One of my friends is good friends with a friend of Anish's and apparently he's desperate to get his hands on some PINK, " notes Semple. "But I'm not budging till he shares the black. He started it!"
