BlackIndian-British sculptor Anish Kapoor has purchased exclusive rights to a new painting material called Vantablack, a black that is darker than any other. The material ____________________ (DEVELOP) in 2014 by British company Surrey NanoSystems and is made, according to the company, of a “ ‘forest’ of millions upon millions of incredibly small tubes made from carbon, or carbon nanotubes.” Vantablack ____________________ (REFLECT) only 0.036% of the light that hits it and ____________________ (COULD/USE) in a number of ways in a range of fields, such as in architecture or aero technology.

Kapoor is an internationally recognized artist known for his biomorphic sculptures and his use of reflective surfaces and extremely rich colors. It is not surprising that he was drawn to experimentation with this unusual substance. Kapoor is not the first artist ____________________ (LAY) exclusive claim to a color. Venetian Renaissance artist Titian ____________________ (HAVE) his own signature blue, as did Yves Klein (who patented his color as IKB: International Klein Blue) in the 1960s. And many companies ____________________ (TRADEMARK) their colors (e.g., UPS’s brown, Tiffany’s blue). But Kapoor’s peers ____________________ (BE) furious that he is the only artist with access to this blackest of all blacks. Unfortunately for them, he has the legal right to do so, and this is the way it ____________________ (PROBABLY/REMAIN) in the future.
