Artist's description:

This is entitled 'Star Wars! Artists at War! Rich v Poor, Lost in Space! and is one off artwork part of a collection of original, one off Monoprints Sketches on A4 Paper.

This is inspired by a recent newspaper article in which the Artist Anish Kapoor (known for the Orbit sculpture at Olympic Park London) has brought up the rights to solely use the Black Paint, known as Vantablack, which the Purist and most expensive Black Paint on Earth, which is 99.96% Pure. Its been used by the Military, such as in the Stealth Bomber.

The artist, Vincent doesn't use Black, as nothing is a pure as Black, as there's always light, except for a Black Hole, so he replaces Black with the nearest colour of Prussian Blue. However, In this piece the artist is drawing attention to that newer colour of Vantablack, that is available only to Anish Kapoor, allegedly. He has taken Kapoor face and trapped in in the Mirror that in the scene of Superman I, in which Four Villains are trapped in Space.

Extract from newspaper as follows:

' Artists at war after top sculptor is given exclusive rights to the purest black paint ever which is used on stealth jets

Vantablack is a pigment of black that is so dark it absorbs 99.96% of light

It is considered the blackest black in the world and highly desired by artists

The exclusive rights to the colour are owned by sculptor Sir Anish Kapoor

Some artists are angry that Kapoor, creator of the Orbit sculpture, has the monopoly over the colour'
