England’s first interactive art studio has opened in Liverpool, offering visitors the chance to create their own masterpieces by splashing, squirting, splattering and shooting paint at a blank canvas.
Splash Art, located in a former theatre in the Ropewalks district, offers a variety of artistic experiences, from pendulum art to dart and spin. You can even blast each other in the dark with neon paint-filled guns.
The venture is the brainchild of Jasmin Ungar, who is also the Director of Midnight Delivery and Co-founder of Bam Boo Brunch and Cocktails.
Jasmin, aged 28, originally from Stuttgart in Germany, first started creating art as a form of meditation, providing a release from the pressures of running her own successful hospitality businesses.
She said: “Splash Art gives visitors permission to leave the day-to-day behind, and the freedom to express themselves. Guests are encouraged to create, get messy, release their frustrations and celebrate their joy.”
Inspired by world travels and a meeting with Salvatore Garu, who famously auctioned off an ‘Invisible Sculpture’ for $18,300, Jasmin became immersed in a world of contemporary art, hosting her first art show in London’s Holy Art Gallery in July 2022. She has since completed several commercial and private commissions in the UK.
Whilst many artists prefer to work alone, Jasmin loves to include her family and friends in her creative processes, encouraging them to be part of her creative journey. Now, she wants others to discover the joy of creating, and to experience the same joy and satisfaction through their own expression.
Having quickly outgrown her home space, Jasmin began seeking a dedicated art space for herself, somewhere she could get creative on a larger scale, start experimenting with new techniques and get messy along the way. Having found her new home in an old theatre, the concept of Splash Art was born as Liverpool’s first dedicated interactive & immersive art space.
“Splash Art was created with the belief that art should be accessible to anyone, whether your little one is just starting to hold a paintbrush or you’re a seasoned pro looking for a new creative outlet.
“We want to give people an unforgettable art experience. We are made to create, so let’s create together!”
The studio has capacity for up to 60 people and visitors can either paint alongside other customers, creating a vibrant and energetic atmosphere, or book a private party for a more intimate gathering tailored to your needs, making it perfect for everything from corporate team-building days to hen or stag parties.
Gift vouchers are also available, making it the perfect present for Christmas, whether you’re trying to impress that special someone or shopping for that one friend who already has everything and doesn’t need more meaningless stuff. Not only can you create memorable experiences together but everybody will leave with their very own pieces of art.
Experiences start from £30 and are available to book via www.splash-art.co.uk
