Secret Painting Club Blue Edition by Couk

Secret Painting Club Blue Version Blind Bag Painting Series and Packaging by Couk

UK artist James Downing (aka Couk) has been working on a really cool project entitled the Secret Painting Club (Blue Version), which is a new blind bag series of 20 original 4”x3” acrylic painting on box canvas! Each painting is a one-off original, never to be reproduced, and comes packaged in a sealed bag so the piece you get is completely random. The idea behind Couk’s concept is that feeling of anticipation as you open a Dunny/ Kubrick/Qee blind box, while not knowing exactly what you might get. Combine that adrenalin rush with the ability to own a one-off piece of original artwork and you’ve got a killer combination.

Each secret painting can be hung or stood upright on a surface, and comes wrapped in black paper along with a hand-drawn character card (containing a sketch and some information about the character) and a full color collector's card (showcasing all 20 characters). All of this is tucked away in a printed paper bag, sealed tightly with a Couk wax seal. The Blot loves the idea of affordable original art and Couk’s Secret Painting Club sounds and looks amazing!!! This is the Blue Edition of the Secret Painting Club meaning each painting features a blue background.
