Pop Bang

Artist Ian Cook unveiled his latest work at the showrooms of sponsor Chevrolet, who were promoting their new all electric car the Volt.

Ian has an unusual style of painting, he doesn't use paintbrushes.. It all began a few years ago when he was given a remote control car for his birthday. "Don't get paint on it" he was told. What a crazy thing to say to a boy. Instantly he thought wow what a great idea. Next thing we know cars are zooming all over his canvases.

His latest crazy idea was to create a piece in fluorescent paint. His sponsor Chevrolet were so keen on this idea they decided to film it. All this had to be done in pitch black.

The painting above is the outcome. It doesn't glow the same way on screen as in reality, but you get the idea.

There can't be many other artists using the same technique. Pretty cool.

Nice to see originality rather than a messy bed.

I see he's decorated his trousers in the same way - could be the latest style.
