Do You Fancy Featuring Fancy Features?!


From a studio in the United Kingdom Fancy Features supply fully customisable giant colouring in canvasses on a commission basis to clients all over the world. Our goal has always been to get as many people as possible involved in creating art together.


To our knowledge we're still the only business in the world that offers a fully bespoke colouring in design service.


We developed the giant colouring in concept at music festivals in 2008. They're a captivating way to get hundreds of people involved in creating a finished painting that's ready for display afterwards, capturing the event forever.


Today with a team of just two artists we've created more than 100 hand illustrated canvasses that have been coloured in by thousands of people at events across the globe. Fancy Features have been commissioned by global brands like Fred Perry and Absolut Vodka, UK charities like the Alzheimer's Society and Mencap and big festivals like Shambala and Secret Garden Party.
