Artist Anish Kapoor in the midst of Pinkest Pink stealing controversy

Story is that  Anish Kapoor owns exclusive rights to use Vantablack – the blackest black substance in the world. Although it was designed by British company NanoSystem for scientific and military uses, Anish managed to secure the rights to being the only artist in the world with permission to paint with it.
And that would probably piss some artists off. After all, colour hoarding is hardly socially minded.
So artist Stuart Semple decided to retort by creating the world’s pinkest pink…called PINK. And it’s available to use by EVERYONE EXCEPT ANISH KAPOOR.

But it doesn’t stop there.
Because Anish Kapoor has managed to get his hands on a pot, and posted a photo on his Instagram account showing Stuart Semple exactly what he thinks of his paint.
