Mischa Barton loves throwing paint parties.
The former ‘O.C.’ actress enjoys inviting friends over to her New York home to create unusual art pieces by throwing colours around. She said: “We mess around and throw paint on canvases. It doesn’t have to be serious. Art is about enjoying yourself, a moment in time. That is the most exciting stuff.”
Mischa is predominantly based in Paris, France, and says the people she has met there have encouraged her to pursue her artistic ambitions. She said: “Paris is such an inspiring city. A group of friends there have brought out my creative side like 10 times more in terms of doing art, paintings, sculpture.”
Mischa’s next small screen project sees her play a model in ‘A Beautiful Life’, in a TV show produced by Ashton Kutcher. The series is based on Ashton’s early experiences as a male model and is set to air in the US later this year.
