Pintar Rapido London is the UK’s biggest plein air painting competition and exhibition. It is a weekend celebration of art and the London cityscape and is open to professional, semi-professional and amateur artists. The challenge is to "capture the spirit of the city in a day" and it inspires hundreds of artists to do so as well as engaging and thrilling the public. The following day the public can view and buy these unique visions of London at the Pintar Rapido exhibition. All participating artists are eligible to win a Pintar Prize and sell their picture at the exhibition.
