Crosstalk e8th — D) P—B Digital Painting workshop

28 May 2016 (Horizont Gallery)

Digital surfaces and canvases. Workshop to practice and learn about pixel-based creation. Content aware fill and drop shadow as artform. Bring your own workstation, drink flower tea, create together.
Free entry.

Hosted by Hungarian Sadness,
Bruno Mokross and Gergő Kovács

The first examples of painting on digital canvases can be traced back to the sixties, and today they are mostly used by “applied” fields (Video games, CGI). The Digital Painting series argue that these techniques don’t have to solely be steps of strict, functional workflows, but can be great tools for aesthetic-focused, abstracted expressions also.

The Digital Painting series is a community space without a fixed geographic location, what aims to spread techniques what are not broadly represented in institutionalized art due to their new-foundness and novelty, and to start interaction between local digital artists.

Previous D) P events have been held in Vienna and Milan by Marco Rizzi, Bruno Mokross and Gergő Kovács (as Hungarian Sadness), and on several occasions in Berlin by Sebastian Zimmerhackl.
