Originating from Spain and meaning “painting quickly”, Pintar Rapido is an exciting new art show that celebrates the urban spaces and places we live and work in.

Hundreds of artists are coming together on Saturday July 13th to paint live on the streets of Kensington & Chelsea to capture the spirit of the borough in a painting.

The following day all their work will be exhibited at Chelsea Old Town Hall on the King’s Road where you can buy direct from the artists. With over three hundred artists taking part you’ll see a wonderful selection of art from £50 to £1,500 and you could own a picture of one of the most interesting areas of London.

“Pintar Rapido is going to be a celebration of art and the city backdrop that inspires artists of all styles to create a painting in a day. I want them to capture the spirit of city – from its parks to its architecture, industrial locations to a river scene. The chaos and the calm and the people who breathe life into it. But most of all I want it to be a fun and exciting event for all those who take part.”  Roger Beckett founder of Pintar Rapido London
