Unleash your inner artist.
It feels good.

Splat is an invitation to play. The creative process is a messy one but most of us live in spaces that are not conducive to throwing paint around. So we created that space at Splat Fabriken; no set up, tidying or tear down. Your art space is waiting for you.

How & Why it Started

Founded in 2023, Splat Fabriken was born out of a desire to have space that allows for messy play, experimentation with colour and movement, and most importantly gathering with friends to share the fun experience. It started as a group of friends splatting in a dining room and now we are excited to share it with you!

Life has expectations for us and we can forget the importance of trying something new, stepping outside our comfort zone and the value of mistakes. Splat continues to attract people (Non-Artists and Artists alike) who are intrigued by the freedom and playfulness of the space.


We aim to let go of any inhibitions you might carry, and any declarations of: 'I am not creative, or I am not an artist'. Art is a process, not a product. Splat focusses on the process of the painting, we don't have finished products you are working to imitate, nothing to compare your work to. This helps to focus you in your process and get creative. It's uniquely yours. 

Inspired by Action Painting of 1940s-60s

Splat Fabriken is inspired by the American Action Painting movement, part of the Abstract Expressionism movement of the 1940s-early 1960s. Action Painting is a style used in painting – a style that emphasizes the process of making art, often through a variety of techniques that include dripping, dabbing, smearing, and even flinging paint on to the surface of the canvas. Action Painting is characterized by energetic techniques that depend on broad gestures directed by the artist's sense of control interacting with chance or random occurrences (that is why it is also called Gestural Abstraction). It’s about direct, instinctual, and highly dynamic kind of art that involves the spontaneous application of vigorous, sweeping brushstrokes and the chance effects of dripping and spilling paint onto the canvas. Based predominately in New York, Action Painting was a post-World War II artistic reaction to the developments in the fields of psychoanalysis and quantum mechanics. Psychoanalysis was particularly important, because people became aware of something that is called Self-Consciousness and Subconscious. Before the “psychoanalyst revolution”, artists aimed to represent object per se, they tried to evoke different emotions, feelings in regard with certain object. The term 'action painting' was coined by Harold Rosenberg in his groundbreaking article The American Action Painters published in ARTnews in December 1952. Rosenberg was referring to artists such as Helen Frankenthaler, Jack Tworkov, Arshile Gorky, Franz Kline, Willem de Kooning, and perhaps the most famous being Jackson Pollock. Pollock worked in a highly spontaneous improvisatory manner, dancing around the canvas pouring, splashing and dripping paint onto it. With this technique, Pollock was able to achieve a more immediate means of creating art, the paint now literally flowing from his chosen tool onto the canvas. He did not even touch the canvas – he redefined the convention of painting on an upright surface, and painted primarily onto a canvas or paper on the floor.

Sustainability in Mind

Creating art is a mindful process and we prioritise this mindfulness in the materials we use and our process in the studio. We do this by using non-toxic paints, limiting single-use products and buying recyclable non-plastic products. 

We ask our customers to also keep this in mind by taking only the paint they need, this way we together avoid unneccesary waste. 

Second-Life Art: We also love the idea of giving items a second life so bring in your shoes, clothes, small furniture etc. to splatter on and reignite your love for old items!
