The Paint Place’s Cycle Spin Paintings

The current show at Slate is from Forest Recycling Project’s “The Paint Place”. They are exhibiting a variety of attractive paintings produced by bicycle power and made from recycled or reclaimed materials. The wooden disks were donated as surplus from a light fitting company and the paint was collected from re-use and recycling centres and commercial companies across London.

Here you can see Nicole from the project installing the Slate exhibition, aided by one of our volunteers:

The project sells reclaimed paint to communities at just £1 per litre. Last year they re-distributed around 36,800 litres of paint.

Best of all, you can own one of these works of art for just £5 – simply contact the project via

Have a look as you pass Slate – and maybe snap up some art for your home!

The exhibition is on until 31 August.
