Digital Collage and Photoshop.

When making my art, I rarely follow rules. Not knowing, techniques, materials and technology, doesn’t bother me and can be a blessing. It gives me more freedom to play around and discover things, that wouldn’t otherwise, be found.

A few images of recent experiments in Photoshop and other programs using my own artworks.

Do you always follow the rules when creating?

Nomad Art. Instant Art. Mobile Art. Portable Art.

Looking back through my art diaries recently, I came across some ideas I had written many years ago, when I was feeling very disillusioned by the art world.

What I wrote back then, now, seems quite relevant in a world full of instant mobile art. All accessed through portable computers, iphones, ipads etc. and art branded using tools like Instagram Facebook Twitter and Pinterest

Excerpt from my diary

Instead of 1 piece of artwork costing heaps, create heaps of artworks costing less, or for nothing, so everybody can have it.

Lets create art that doesn’t wait to be seen. It needs to travel, be mobile, just like all other technology. Portable – Affordable – Instant. Get art out to the masses!

Nomad art!

What is this art about?

Art for the world

Art for now

Art to wear

Art to carry

Art to share

Art to play

Art to read

Art to solve problems

Art that lectures

art that soothes

art that disgusts

art that provokes

art to laugh

art that cry’s

art that shouts

art that is silent

Art that upsets

Art that calms

Art that is art

Art that doesn’t lose its integrity or history, just because its easy access to all.

That’s today!

That’s now!
