Painters in Residence

Annie Sloan set up her ‘Painters in Residence’ programme in order to promote interesting and inspirational ways of using Chalk Paint® through collaboration with creatives around the world.

How does it work?

The concept is very loosely based on the way an art gallery or museum will, from time to time, have an ‘artist in residence’ to inhabit those places as a way to get inspired to create their own works inside or outside the venue.

Painters in Residence are selected by invitation only. Each Painter in Residence is carefully selected by Annie based on their style and the interesting work they create. They won’t be taking up residence at Annie Sloan HQ, but they will be exploring the boundaries of decorative painting. They are all different in approach, colour, tone and textures and their styles range from French elegance to funky Bohemian to quirky rustic country fused with loud fabrics.

Hanayuishi Takaya

From Kyoto, Hanayuishi Takaya combines floristry with art and fashion to create one-of-a-kind headdresses. He uses all sorts of objects in his work - flowers, vegetables and fruits, even taxidermy! – to create his unique and ethereal pieces. He works on the spot, allowing the personalty of the person to spontaneously invent, calling it ‘a unity of human and nature'.
