What is Paintvine?
This painting is by the Irish Artist John Nolan. The subject of John’s work is colour. He explores colour through his stylized/ pop art, contemporary and abstract styles. In 2008 he started a series of stylised paintings – Paying Homage – this is a work in progress which pays homage to the great masters. His paintings have been inspired by many artists. His father, in particular, was a huge influence on and source of inspiration for his work. John’s paintings transmit a positive, upbeat feeling to the viewer.
We provide all the materials you need (high-quality canvas, acrylic paint, brushes). All you need to bring is your creative spirit (or find some at the bottom of a glass). At the end of the night you will leave with your own painting ready to hang up on your wall.

So what are you going to be painting?
The Scream is one of the world's most infamous paintings, brought to life over a hundred years ago in 1893 by Norwegian artist Edvard Munch. Ed was inspired to paint this striking piece after taking a stroll along a path one evening and instantly felt tired and ill, the painting is symbolic of how he felt at the time. Much like how we usually do Sunday morning after a few vinos - on another note this painting last sold for over $100 USD Million, so you never know, yours might also be worth that one day?
