This isn't quite as black as VantaBlack.

But VantaBlack is a very expensive surface treatment where you send your gear to a lab in the UK to have it applied, and this is a sprayable paint that you buy at a pretty normal paint price online.

The same store sells various other ultimate colors, including a pink pigment that converts an insane quantity of the light that hits it into pink when it reflects. Anish Kapoor is also forbidden from using those, but has posted a selfie with some of the pink on his finger.

That....is very pink.  Quite possibly None more pink.  Also, wow...that guy seems like an asshole, and yet at the same time it feels odd to be backing Pink-guy in an argument.

Some of the history there is that VantaBlack was developed based on a research paper that Semple co-published.

So he took it personally when NanoSystems took his idea and developed it into a product, and then licensed it exclusively to an asshole who hoards colors (for use in artwork).

Okay, yeah, that takes it from weird artistic conceptual spat (and even at that, I'd tend to agree that 'exclusive' use of a color is kind of bullshiat and someone should argue that with the guy) to pretty personal.

Yeah, I don't generally make bucket list items, but seeing Vanta Black in person is definitely on the list.

Ah, I must have remembered the pink story when I read this one, seemed like a repeat.

This Anish Kapoor fellow sounds like the pharma bro of the art world.

Archer could tell you if the shade of black is black enough.

Didn't Anish Kapoor also try to copyright the phrase "threepeat"?  Or was that  Phil Jackson?

/ Or the Jewish girl hiding in the attic?

So now I'm confused.

What am I allowed to use to paint my helicopter?
