Pintar Rapido London

Cheyne Walk (oil on board)
John Walsom braved the heat on what was the hottest day of the year so far in London to take part in Pintar Rapido. Meaning 'to paint quickly' the event originating in Spain is an art show that celebrates 'the urban spaces we live and work in'. Alongside hundreds of other artists, John completed two paintings, one of which was exhibited the following day at Chelsea Old Town Hall on the King’s Road where the paintings could be purchased by the public. Roger Beckett founder of Pintar Rapido London says of the event;

"Pintar Rapido is going to be a celebration of art and the city backdrop that inspires artists of all styles to create a painting in a day. I want them to capture the spirit of city – from its parks to its architecture, industrial locations to a river scene. The chaos and the calm and the people who breathe life into it. But most of all I want it to be a fun and exciting event for all those who take part."
