Painting the rainbow over Glastonbury
Glastonbury Festival-goers may have noticed a colourful new fixture in The Park field this year, in the form of a large sitting rainbow sculpture.
And we’re proud to have donated 50 litres of our Matt Vinyl and Sadolin Outdoor Varnish Satin paints in each colour of the rainbow to complete the sculpture, which took just under three weeks to complete by UK contemporary artist Paul Insect and a team of engineers and carpenters who worked to bring Paul’s vision to life.
The sculpture was organised for Glastonbury Festival by art curators Creative Giants and designed by Paul Insect, and stands at over six metres tall, providing a fun new fixture for the weekend, which complemented the famous Glastonbury sign.
Artists often rely on donations, which is where we stepped in by specifying and providing paint for Paul Insect’s sculpture. Thanks to the wide variety of colours available across our product ranges, we were able to supply the paint to match colour samples sent by Paul.
We’re always looking for ways to contribute to art and community projects through donating our paint, so we were more than happy to supply the paint needed for the Glastonbury Rainbow. It’s exciting to see our products bring an artist’s vision to life, especially on a platform as famous as one of the UK’s biggest festivals, and we’re pleased that the finished result was a success.
