This weekend the Los Angeles Mobile Arts Festival, aka #LAMAF opened its gates. It shows a wide range of art created on mobile devices, from iPhonography and painting, to an electric car wrapped in iPad art by my good friend Matthew Watkins.
Some weeks ago I had the chance to interview Nate Park, one of the organizers, about the event end most important, why they chose a helicopter guy as their main visual:
Art in and of itself is timeless. It’s one of the things that makes us human. (…)how the mobile art movement draws similarities to a time when fine art photography was beginning to come into its own about 100 years ago. Similar to that period, artists are exploring and pushing this medium, and people are really just discovering what it is, what it can be, and ultimately finding its place in the fine art world.

Two of my artworks, Bunny&Cloud and The Red Cross Is Always Late are hanging in the ArtRage and SketchBook area, respectively.
