So, there’s apparently an art altercation going on. I think that what happened is an artist worked with a chemistry company to create a dangerous(ish), but awesome new thing to make art with: The Blackest Black. Seriously, the stuff makes the thing “painted” with it look like a black hole.
Anyway. Supposedly, some artist sculptor has access to the substance (“Vantablack”) and isn’t sharing. (In part because it’s not exactly safe!!) and that has other artists ticked.
So, there’s a feud, with a different artist making paints preventing the first artist from buying them.
