Travelers invited to create their own masterpieces at the new Concourse B studio
PITTSBURGH – Fraport USA announces the arrival of Paint Monkey, a Pittsburgh do-it-yourself paint studio, at Pittsburgh International Airport. As the latest pop-up to open through Airmall Pittsburgh’s POP-OPPs program, Paint Monkey’s new art kiosk on Concourse B adapts the brand’s unique studio space to an airport setting.
“Pittsburgh loves Paint Monkey, and our studios are a big hit among families, couples and friends looking for a fun and creative activity,” said Joe Groom, owner of Paint Monkey. “Bringing Paint Monkey into the terminal is great for travelers of all ages seeking a unique way to make the most of their trip or something different to do at the airport.”
With Paint Monkey, travelers have an opportunity to paint their own masterpieces on pre-sketched canvases in a range of sizes designed to fit into carry-on baggage. The artists’ creations can also be shipped to their home or destination. For time-pressed travelers, Paint Monkey offers spin art, and pre-painted merchandise featuring iconic Pittsburgh imagery are also available for purchase. Prices for the colorful do-it-yourself creations start at $10 and range from cupcakes, robots and unicorns to Pittsburgh skylines and abstract art.
Paint Monkey has four studios in Pittsburgh’s Lawrenceville, North Hills and Waterfront neighborhoods. It was one of two area businesses recently chosen by Google Small Business for a documentary featuring small businesses in Pittsburgh.
