It's fascinating to me that the iPad now is even becoming a creation device for top artists such as David Hockney whose exhibit is currently running at the de Young museum for those of you in San Francisco. 


Will that inspire the masses to become iPad painters too?

An interesting interview and article I wish I could do this!!

David Hockney's iPad Art On Display At Royal Academy

David Hockney's iPad Art On Display At Royal Academy | Contemporary Digital Artists | Scoop.it

David Hockney may be 74 years old, but that doesn't mean he can't learn some new tricks. A new exhibition at the Royal Academy will feature many landscapes which Hockney drew on an iPad, then blew up and printed on paper.

It's a new direction for Hockney, and the artist admits he didn't take to the Apple device quickly. "It took me awhile to realize it's quite a serious tool you can use," he said.

Holly Berndt's insight:

David Hockney, 74, creates digital paintings on an iPad using various apps. This article advertises an exhibition titled "David Hockney: A Bigger Picture" held at the Royal Academy in January 2012 - April 2012. Hockney creates iPad paintings, enlarges them and prints on multiple sheets of paper.

This is a very interesting take on power and the importance of the individuals attempts to add to our global society. Gordon Lascelles's Interview speaks to the idea that every voice matters, and every person can have power. The lack of power is like a disease to those who believe that they can not influence anything to our world.

The international artist David Hockney has turned to the iPad to display his latest work at an exhibition in Paris called Fleurs Fraiches.

Via Jon Samuelson
Holly Berndt's insight:

In this article by Colin Grant, Hockney's methods are studied and expressed. Hockney shares how frustrating computer can be for a beginner. The process can be slow and aggravating. However, today Hockney creates large and beautiful iPad paintings. Hockney also animates his iPad paintings so he can see every stroke to form the drawing. He also enjoys the ability to share a drawing or painting instantly online. Hockney uses multiple apps, including the Brushes app. Hockney prefers using his fingers over a stylus pen because his fingers give a variety of brush affects. He also expresses how much easier and convenient iPad painting is compared to traditional methods. 

"You know sometimes I get so carried away, I wipe my fingers at the end thinking that I've got paint on them."  - David Hockney.

The drawing and painting apps for I pad and I Phone are exciting new artistic media with great creative potential that have opened a new era in digital painting.

I have been working with this new media for about three years and it is not an understatement to say that it has revolutionised my creative process.

Initially I saw this as not much more than a portable digital sketchbook in which ideas can be captured quickly and in full colour, however when David Hockney exhibited a room full of I pad prints each one measuring 6 ft high at the Royal Academy of Art in London earlier this year the full potential of what is possible with this new media started to be unveiled. By utilizing the latest in printing technology these images glowed from the page transferring the quality of a backlit screen onto large sheets of archival quality paper in vibrant colour. Overnight my perception was changed from seeing the ipad as a not much more than a portable sketchbook to a serious artistic media with huge creative potential.

Holly Berndt's insight:

For the past few years, Paul Bloomer has been exploring the creative potential of painting on the iPad and iPod using the Brushes app. Bloomer began this process by using a digital sketchbook, but started producing a large body of work. Bloomer is inspired by David Hockney and began producing digital art soon after viewing an exhibit by Hockney. Bloomer, like Hockney, enjoys the mess-free process of painting on tablets and the ability to instantly share digital artwork with others using social media.

Maggie Taylor is a digital image artist and photographer working in Gainesville, Florida who uses a flatbed scanner in place of a traditional camera. The intent of her images is twofold: to explore the visual nature of images made utilizing this type of digital technology; and to create a dreamlike world inhabited by everyday objects which take on new and mythical meanings unique to each viewer. She intends her work to be both playful and disturbing.
Holly Berndt's insight:

Maggie Taylor is a digital artist who uses a scanner instead of a camera. Her digital collages are meant to be "dreamlike" and surreal, sometimes even disturbing. Taylor received her undergraduate degree from Yale University and her graduate degree from the University of Florida. She now resides in Gainesville, Florida.

Brian Knep :: Deep Wounds

Brian Knep :: Deep Wounds | Contemporary Digital Artists | Scoop.it

Deep Wounds projects a luminous light on the white-marble floor of the hall. Looking closely, visitors see hints of inscribed text. As they walk across these areas, the luminous skin blisters and opens to reveal descriptions of the graduates who died fighting for the Confederacy. Each man's year of graduation, state, date of death and battle of death are projected onto the floor. Instead of a name, however, there is a relationship such as ‘father’ or ‘classmate’ that describes a family relationship each man had or a relationship he had to schoolmates on the wall. After the uncovering, the skin mends itself, covering the names once again.

The Confederate men are arranged on the floor facing or close to Union men from the same Harvard graduation year. The Union words are etched in red and the Confederate words are written in blue.

Deep Wounds has won awards from Ars Electronica, the International Association of Art Critics, and Americans for the Arts, who selected it as one of the best public-art projects of 2007.

Holly Berndt's insight:

Brian Knep is a media artist who often creates large-scale installations. He was the first artist residence at Harvard and worked with scientists, using their tools and innovations. Knep has a background in computer science and helped found Nearlife, a design and technology company that creates interactive experiences in children and science museums. Deep Wounds is a perfect example of Knep's interactive installations. When students and staff walk over the installation, names of Confederate men appear, as well as their death and location.

Holly Berndt's insight:

Aziz and Cucher's collaborative interest is in “creating visual metaphors for the increasing role that new technologies play in our lives and how they affect us politically, socially, and psychologically.” The artists use photography and digitally edit out the mouths and eyes of the people. It's interesting how the artists use technology in their artistic process while they reflect on the role of technology and how it affects us as humans.

Holly Berndt's insight:

This article by Alex Thomas includes iPad art by multiple amazing artists: Stef Kardos, Susan Murtaugh, Goro Fujita, and Xoan Baltar. Many of these artists have a background in animation, which most likely helps the process of creating paintings on the iPad. "Thanks to programs like Brushes and SketchBook Pro, there's also an ever-growing community of 'finger painters' on social networking sites such as Flickr and Facebook, where they upload artwork straight from their iPads or iPhones to share with the world. You can even see videos of how they have put the paintings together." - Alex Thomas.
