Artist hurls paint into Learjet engine

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) — Princess Tarinan von Anhalt’s creative process may be a bit more powerful than the average artist these days.

She hurled paint into a Learjet engine on Tuesday from a tarmac in West Palm Beach, splattering the colors onto a canvas to create the abstract designs for which she has become known. The jet engine pushes the paint into a force several times greater than hurricane winds, creating an intense power and heat. Von Anhalt says that power and heat helps create this one-of-a-kind art.

She started her artwork in 2006 after studying the work of her mentor and late husband, Prinz Jurgen von Anhalt.

Tuesday’s demonstration is part of an event by a private jet services company and an art group to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Learjet.
