The Shorty Interview with Ian Cook

What's your best tweet?

my next tweet is always my best one, or maybe one that links to my shorty nomination... http://shortyawards.com/Popbangcolour :)

Hashtag you created that you wish everyone used?

#PopbangColour as it's three words, all happy words and with a British flavour to it too.

Have you ever unfollowed someone? Who and why?

I like to follow people with active accounts, as twitter is about now, so occasionally I have. But follow @popbangcolour, he's cool, i hear.)

How do you make your tweets unique?

I tweet as I paint, I talk about the car and art industry and I do live-feeding of artworks being created too. I also tweet photos of my cat

Learn More about Ian Cook


Five years ago @Popbangcolour started out as an idea, from a flippant comment, to create a process of painting with cars, tyres and wheels. 5 years on it’s a business that is nominated for awards. All the artwork I create is solely produced by painting with radio controlled cars, car tyres and wheels. I create for car manufacturers and car owners live at events. Popbang is a friendly explosion of Colour this is where the name @Popbangcolour comes from.
