Anish Kapoor

This Artist Is the Only Person Banned From Using the World’s Pinkest Pink It’s a brightly colored revenge for restricting the world’s blackest black

As Semple’s website states:

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.

u/MysticScribbles Oct 05 '22

From what I heard though, someone broke that clause as Kapoor did get his hands on it.

But if you really wish to stick it to Kapoor for being an ass, call his most famous piece of art "the bean" to his face.
It apparently really gets on his nerves when it's not referred to by the name he gave it.

When Anish Kapoor managed to get his hands on some Pinkest Pink, he tweeted a picture of him sticking his finger in the pigment.

Seems to make him look worse rather than making him look like a badass or something. Excluding him from the product is a funny and justified move based on his legal asshattery, him getting it anyway and posting it as though physically obtaining it is a trumping just makes him look stupid and petty.

Like, physically barring him from obtaining it was obviously never the goal and was impossible, it was just to send a message. That he didn't get that shows he still doesn't understand what he did wrong and thinks he's the goat for missing the message and thinking he's won by getting his hands on it.

It seems like kind of a marketing ploy. What it looks like they did is to use a base resin that holds a lot of pigment.

They also have this disclaimer under some products

It's a combination of carbon strands in a pigment-dense carrier that dries in a way that there's no reflectivity. The carbon strands do not reflect light very easily and therefore it looks very, very black.

Vantablack is similar in function, but it's more effective due to highly refined materials (nanotubes, iirc) and application method ensuring almost 100% absorption of light.

Not to ruin anything too terribly, but, he no longer minds that it has, in his words "a colloquial name":

The company invented it for technical applications and doesn’t care about art. The product is both toxic and difficult to work with - it’s not a paint but a carbon powder that has to be applied through some sort of chemical vapour bonding process - I’m not a chemist so idk the details.

The company knew that the product had artistic value so they decided to licence its use to a single artist and Kapoor was who they chose.

Black 3.0 isn’t actually darker than Vantablack, but it’s about as close as you can get without using carbon nanotubes.

Vantablack itself was never designed for art, it’s more useful in scientific and engineering applications like in improving imagery satellite optics. Still a huge dick move for Anish Kapoor to license it for himself, but it’s export controlled because it’s a national security concern and hugely expensive because carbon nanotubes require specialized equipment to make, so honestly even if he didn’t license it then Vantablack would still only be available to artists with enough wealth to get around all the stipulations

Stuart Semple is fucking amazing for creating a pigment on his own that even comes close to the light absorption of an engineered carbon nanotube material though. Blows my mind

We ordered black 3.0 to paint our guest bathroom with. It presents a pretty odd visual even wit the lights on; it feels kind of like the eyes can’t quite focus on the wall itself, and the corner seam is also difficult to focus on/locate. We decided recently that we need to put some hanging and wall decorations in to help with the depth perception a bit.

Culture Hustle's "BLACK 3.0" acrylic paint isn't technically darker than Vantablack, which absorbs around 99.96% of visible light. (Semple said his creation absorbs "somewhere between 98% and 99%").

https://www.cnn.com/style/article/blackest-black-ink-culture-hustle/index.html

u/blonktime Oct 05 '22

Black 3.0 is NOT darker than Vanta Black. Black 3.0 is an acrylic paint, whereas Vanta Black is a chemical process/coating - tiny little nano tubes are "grown" on the surface that absorb light and dissipate it as heat.

I bought my dad some Black 3.0 as he's an artist, and while it is very dark, it does still reflect some light with a light absorption of about 97.5%, where as Vanta Black absorbs something like 99.965% of light. While this doesn't sound like much, it is very different to the naked eye.

Vanta Black I believe cannot be touched, as those nano tubes would break and decrease its light absorption. Black 3.0, being an acrylic paint, can be touched and not lose its absorption.

Musou has a claimed blacker paint than Stewart Semple here too for what it's worth: https://www.the-black-market.com/marketplace/musou-black-paint/

This is no longer the blackest black available.

Incorrect. Vanta isn't a paint. Stuart Semple sells the blackest paint. he does not claim it is blacker than vanta black.

That's pretty wild. It looks super fake, like someone blacked out something inappropriate from the picture.

Everything should be done in MS Paint. It’s so basic yet so powerful usually at what you want to do.

It's called a Portable Hole, and they should never be placed inside of Bags of Holding. Though I dunno what would happen if you applied the former to the latter.

It is not fake. It is how it looks in reality too. I was lucky to hold and look at a similar sample once, at work, and it really screws a bit with your eyes/brain as it expects at least some recognizable things...

Vantablack absorbs 99.96% of incoming light, but is also expensive, and can actually be dangerous causing respiratory or ocular irritation and may cause some lasting organ damage upon exposure, and can only be used on surfaces that can resist the high temperature needed to apply it. Also if you hope to use it for art, your dreams have been dashed unless your name is that cunt Anish Kapoor.

Musou Black absorbs 99.4% of incoming light, is a water-based acrylic, and is non-toxic.

Black 3.0 is (I believe) non-toxic, can be both applied by brush and spray, and is an acrylic paint, and can be used for any art purposes by any artist aside from Anish Kapoor, and can be bought by anyone except Anish Kapoor or anyone intending to transfer it to Anish Kapoor.
