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.
