The ArtScience Museum at Marina Bay Sands in Singapore is ahead of just about every other museum on the planet. Their VR collections bring some of the most cutting edge exhibitions from artists, scientists, festivals, and other institutions to push the boundary of what a museum experience could be. We wish we lived closer so that we could experience their current exhibition Hyperealities, but when traveling is safer this is on our list of places we'd love to visit.
The Twitter hashtag #vermillionvr has trended, showing some great paintings people have created using the new Vermillion VR painting app. Comparing real world painting against this app this is definitely not as messy and but still creatively liberating. We're looking forward to finding some time this week to complete a painting we started a few days ago, and can see this being one of our go to VR experiences when we need to relax and unwind.
Painting VR describes itself as a "virtual reality art painting simulation game with gigantic canvases" but that doesn't really give you a sense of how much fun it is to play with their giant canvases. More than other VR painting experiences this one embraces how virtual environments enables tools and scales that can be downright impossible within reality.
Brushwork is an up and coming painting simulator with social sharing built into the core experience. Still in alpha, we can see there is a lot of potential for this to become a fun way to create and share artwork. If you're up for trying something with a little less polish we'd recommend giving it a try, and also joining their Discord server to let them know what you like or what could be improved.
