Guernsey artist, Tiffany Matthews, will be live streaming herself painting 250 "mini cosmoses" today [6 August].
Miss Matthews will be streaming on her Instagram page as she paints the canvases to great “one giant piece with distant galaxies, dwarf planets, black holes and all other cosmic magic you can think of”.
Miss Matthews said she has always had an interest in space and was inspired by recent images from the James Webb telescope. She began painting cosmos pieces last year with UV spray paint, which glows under UV light. “The way they glow means you can have two completely different looks to your painting both day and night,” she said.

“I love creating these so muc. It takes me on an adventure into space and back and I’m so excited to share my journey there this Saturday," said Miss Matthews.
In February Miss Matthews launched a “cosmo drop” of 50 mini paintings and donated 100% of her sales to The Little Black Dog Rescue local charity.
“I have been overwhelmed at the interest I’ve received with my cosmo work, so after dropping 50 minis earlier this year, I knew I wanted to go extra big and the next step was 250,” said Miss Matthews.

Miss Matthews will take the final pieces to London next month for her pop-up show in King’s Road in Chelsea. They will be available to purchase on her website from 10 September.
