Santa Monica, CA (PRWEB) June 30, 2012
Diptic, a mobile app that lets iPhoneographers combine multiple photos to create a new image, has partnered with the mobile arts community iPhoneArt.com (IPA) and Autodesk Inc. to produce the LA Mobile Arts Festival 2012 (LA MAF). (August 18-25, 2012 at the Santa Monica Art Studios.)
Award-winning mobile artists from around the globe will show off their latest creative works in a variety of innovative art forms under the soaring roofline of the Santa Monica Art Studios (SMAS) an historical airplane hangar turned cutting-edge contemporary arts community.
Diptic was the industry’s first software application to focus on creating diptych and triptych photographs with hand-held devices. The app allows users to tell a story with their photos by creating sequences, sectioning imagery, and juxtaposing contrasting visuals.
“The mobile arts are all about breaking new ground, and Diptic is a great example of how many artists are able to push the boundaries of the apps they use into unexpected realms,” said IPA cofounder and LA MAF producer Daria Polichetti. “Designed by Peak Systems, it brings an ancient art form (the triptych) into the digital age, allowing artist to create split-screen works that go far beyond what you might expect. The LA MAF will be a great space to show off the truly innovative creations that are being generated by many of the best artists in the mobile art world today,” she said.
“We are always looking for companies to partner with who share our vision, and who want to give something back to the artists responsible for the increasing success of the mobile art movement. So we are honored to have Diptic as our partner and look forward to seeing the results.”
The LA MAF event is Santa Monica Art Studios’ first-ever mobile arts exhibition, showcasing interactive mobile artistry across a range of fields. The SMAS art community is a major mecca for contemporary art and design in the Los Angeles area, hosting shows produced by curators around the globe. It is located close to Silicone Beach—a new hub for mobile app and technology development.
“We are thrilled to partner with the LA MAF,” said John Sloat, president and CEO of Peak Systems. “Mobile art is an exciting and rapidly evolving art form, and we are proud to support an event that features the work of talented artists who are leading this movement.”
