We often admire the famous painters from the past and think that nobody will ever have such talent and skills again, when in reality there are so many incredibly talented people today all around the world. We also have more ways than ever to see their work thanks to social media and one great example of that is Remington Robinson’s Instagram page.
Robinson is a Colorado-based artist who paints true masterpieces on tiny mint tins. He actually paints on small wooden panels that he attaches to the container lids. Once prepared, he travels to an inspirational site and uses the tin as the palette as he paints on the wooden panel.
“I use a new container every time, and when I am finished, the painting stays with the container it was painted in, complete with the palette of paint that was used to create it,” Robinson tells My Modern Met. Each container become a little art artifact, as he says.
