Invented by Tunisian artist Hechmi Ghachem during the 1980s - when freedom of expression was outlawed in his country - groups of artists painted together, on the same canvas, in complete silence to protect their identities. Luke Palmer is the first to bring the liberating concept of collaborative painting to the UK.

Come see the fascinating results of collaborative painting sessions held at the RWA with local and street artists.

“With its unique set of rules TCP makes it possible for artists to experience letting things happen instead of trying to control what is happening. In the process each artist discovers more of his or her talents and widens the imagination.

Luke Palmer has taken over for the loss of Hechmi Ghachem. His personal experience with the creative process has become the foundation for a new path into the magical world of Tunisian Collaborative Painting.

It is an experience you will never forget.”
